BSP AWARDS OUTSTANDING STAFF
Thursday, 3 December 2015
THE nation’s flagship oil company Brunei Shell Petroleum Company Sdn Bhd (BSP) yesterday held an appreciation ceremony with three national tertiary education institutions – Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD), Institut Teknologi Brunei (ITB) and Politeknik Brunei for existing collaboration.
The event took place at the Oil and Gas Discovery Centre (OGDC), in Brunei’s oil and gas hub town – Seria and included invited guests from the academic institutions.
The appreciation ceremony was organised to acknowledge the efforts of BSP’s staff who had put in additional time, energy and passion into coaching and nurturing students from Brunei’s higher education institutions to achieve deeper learning in subject areas relevant to development of Brunei’s oil and gas.
A total of 43 staff members received certificates of appreciation for their contribution into coaching and mentoring students from UBD, ITB and Politeknik Brunei in areas of engineering, petroleum engineering, wells, geosciences and geomantic.

BSP stated that in line with Vision 2035, BSP has been supporting technical and engineering degree courses through a combination of project-focussed student programmes; providing data to fuel further student projects and associated research, providing teaching and lecturing support to course modules and through provision of samples and equipment for similar purposes. These activates are aligned with BSP’s social investment commitment.
BSP said the event also provided an opportunity to discuss and steer continued collaboration, through a forum of poster presentations that shared viewpoints of academic representatives, BSP’s coaches, currently-attached students, and representatives of two Brunei based organisations with similar subject matter interests (Geological Society of Brunei, Society of Petroleum Engineers).
