ExxonMobil Qatar presented 13 Tamayoz training courses between January and March 2016 for 280 employees from valued partner Qatar Petroleum; joint ventures RasGas and Qatargas; Tasweeq and Nakilat. Tamayoz demonstrates ExxonMobil Qatar’s commitment to sharing technical, commercial and operational expertise in a way that benefits individual participants, while also reinforcing the state of Qatar’s growth toward a knowledge-based economy. 

“At ExxonMobil Qatar, we’re committed to developing human capacity at every level and across various fields so that we can strengthen Qatar’s capability to innovate, adapt and thrive. We do this in support of His Highness The Emir’s vision for a knowledge-based society, a vision that can only be made possible with a workforce that is meeting its full potential,” said Alistair Routledge, President and General Manager for ExxonMobil Qatar. “Through our Tamayoz training program, and by sharing ExxonMobil’s knowledge and expertise with our partners in Qatar’s energy industry, we’re working to ensure that human development doesn’t end in the classroom. Our goal is to empower participants to become the best business leaders, communicators and innovators they can be.”

Tamayoz delivers professional and personal development opportunities through six targeted critical competency areas: leadership and personal effectiveness; project management; commercial; operations excellence; technical (surface and subsurface); and safety, health and the environment.

Courses held between January and March included offerings from each of the six key subject areas, including the flagship Leadership and Operations Excellence courses: Technical and Commercial Leadership, and Production Best Practices, both of which were held twice. The Technical and Commercial Leadership course targets professionals with between five and 10 years of experience and aims to improve their ability to influence and shape the technical and commercial direction of an organization through leadership skills, while Production Best Practices helps staff in operations leadership or support roles to understand how applying best practices, tools and collaboration contribute to excellence in safety, integrity, reliability and profitability.

ExxonMobil Qatar also offered courses in Materials Engineering; Crisis Management for Marine; Economic Analysis; Carbonate Geology Basics; and Advanced Influence and Negotiation; as well as a number of project engineering and management courses. First-time Tamayoz participant Mohammed S. AlBaker, Head of Joint Interests Operations for Business Support at Qatargas, explained, “I was a little reluctant to participate in the Tamayoz program because this type of program takes up a lot of time and requires a great deal of commitment. I was hesitant to take time off from my demanding job, but now that I’ve gone through the program, I am so appreciative of the opportunity to attend the Technical and Commercial Leadership course.”

“The leadership skills that I gained during the course will no doubt serve me well both professionally and personally for many years to come. I walked away from the three-day course feeling more positive than I have in years about my role that involves driving innovation at my organization, and also impacts my country in the long-term.” Approximately 150 courses have been offered free of charge to ExxonMobil Qatar’s partners and joint ventures with more than 2,300 individuals receiving training since the inception of the program in 2012. In 2015 alone, over 40 courses were offered to more than 600 industry professionals. All Tamayoz training programs are an extension of ExxonMobil Qatar’s ongoing commitment to the development of Qatar’s national workforce.

ExxonMobil Qatar is committed to providing the energy needed to fuel human potential; to support research, safety, health and the environment; and to nurture Qatar’s thriving society, in line with the Qatar National Vision 2030.
