Results: Angola LNG and Esso Exploration Angola
Since 2013, SAIT has offered training to Angola LNG and Esso Exploration Angola. Employees have received training in the mechanical/technical aspects of oil and gas production, English-language competency and other skills that will help provide strong employment futures.
These programs consisted of operator training starting with foundational components of science, computers, health and safety and oil and gas.
The next training section involved one of four technical disciplines: mechanical, instrumentation, electrical and operations. Successful candidates completed the academic foundations and English courses in Angola, then studied the technical components in Canada, enjoying exposure to SAIT’s cutting-edge facilities.
Over 400 Angolan students have studied at SAIT.
SAIT designed and delivered a customized, two-year program for Angola LNG that has been delivered several times over 16 years.

Results: LNG Operator Training for ConocoPhillips, Australia
This collaborative initiative between SAIT, ConocoPhillips APLNG and Central Queensland Institute of Technical and Further Education (CQ TAFE) offered operator training to 100 APLNG technicians who, upon completion of their training, were able to commission APLNG’s $24.7 billion LNG facility in Queensland.
In this workforce development model, SAIT and CQ TAFE, a local college, designed a real-world learning environment utilizing a classroom and operational lab facility purchased and installed by ConocoPhillips APLNG. The classroom and lab were returned to the college at the end of the project. The college has since continued the delivery of SAIT’s curriculum.
In 2015, SAIT provided liquefied natural gas (LNG) training for LNG operators of ConocoPhillips APLNG, a large international oil company in Northeastern Australia.
