Quoting Mr. Biang Kanasa in his learners’ representative speech, “Though we are from the same company, we just had the chance to connect and bond after joining this programme. In addition, now I am proud to say, we are able to speak the same language across different fields of engineering.”


Mr. Biang Kanasa also conveyed his gratitude towards INSTEP hospitality and 5-star services provided through his 4-month stay in INSTEP. “We were exposed to cultural differences when we just arrived here, but luckily in no time, we were able to adapt quickly since everyone at INSTEP is so warm and welcoming”, he added.

INSTEP Celebrates Second Batch of Job Ready Technicians for Sarawak’s First Methanol Project

3 November 2022 marked another INSTEP’s success story when 43 learners from Sarawak Petchem Sdn Bhd have successfully completed the Technician Training Programme (TTP). They are the second batch of TTP, tailored by INSTEP to train the young technical talents in areas of Operations, Maintenance, and Health, Safety & Environment (HSE) to be a qualified technician in delivering the state’s first mega methanol aspiration.

Certificate giving ceremony by the Chairman of Sarawak Petchem, YBhg. Tan Sri Datuk Amar (Dr.) Hj Abdul Aziz Dato Haji Husain and Chief Executive Officer of INSTEP, En. Idris Ibrahim.

The closing ceremony was honored by the presence of Chairman of Sarawak Petchem Sdn. Bhd., YBhg. Tan Sri Datuk Amar (Dr.) Hj Abdul Aziz Dato Haji Husain, Director-in-charge of Sarawak Petchem Sdn. Bhd., YBhg. Datu Dr Hj Muhammad Abdullah Zaidel and YBhg. Datu Hj Abdul Hadi Datuk Haji Abdul Kadir and Chief Executive Officer of INSTEP, En. Idris Ibrahim.

YBhg. Tan Sri Datuk Amar (Dr.) Hj Abdul Aziz Dato Haji Husain in his speech regarded his acknowledgment to the enormous dedication from INSTEP as the key player in supporting the Sarawak’s first mega-methanol project.

Chairman of Sarawak Petchem Sdn. Bhd., YBhg. Tan Sri Datuk Amar (Dr.) Hj Abdul Aziz Dato Haji Husain delivered his speech.

“INSTEP and PETRONAS are continuously exhibiting an unwavering endeavor on accelerating the human capital to reinforce the advancement of local workforce and technical talents, and concurrently lessening the dependency on external workforce, in an effort to establish Bintulu as a petrochemical hub,” he added.

The job-ready technicians will be stationed to multiple PETRONAS plants in Bintulu and Labuan to undergo On Job Training (OJT) as a part of the training development programme. This is crucial for the learners to get the exposure of the real-life working experience and to exercise safe working practices in the real plants.

Chief Executive Officer of INSTEP, En. Idris Ibrahim delivered his remarks during the event.

Quoting Chief Executive Officer of INSTEP, En. Idris Ibrahim’s words,” In a world that is increasingly volatile and uncertain, competency is currency. Equipping yourself with technical skills and knowledge can increase the employability and selling factor of oneself.”

He also touched upon the importance of setting the tone of professionalism to the learners. “The most important reminder to our learners before entering the professional field, is to stand firm and steadfast on your integrity belief. Knowledge and skills without discipline and self-integrity are insubstantial.”

Azri Ibrahim delivered his appreciation speech on behalf of his fellow colleagues.

Azri Ibrahim, the leader of Batch 2 Learners, conveyed his profound gratitude to be able to be a part of Sarawak Petchem legacy and joining the 1-year training programme at INSTEP.

“Despite coming from different family and educational background in Sarawak, we are able to adapt and study together here in INSTEP. We gained extensive new knowledge and skills including critical thinking and problem solving from our experienced instructors. This will be a momentous mark in our lives, personally and professionally,” he said.

Delightful smiles from the learners lit up the ceremony.

The dignitaries were also entertained with a stage performance from the learners.

This joyous ceremony is not the end for the learners, it only signifies the beginning of a new journey to them. With all the knowledge gained from INSTEP, this will be a kickstart to carve a new career pathway for the learners, endorsing INSTEP’s fruitful education system.


INSTEP has so far produced more than 130,000 technical graduates in various fields for the global energy sector over a period of four decades, an illustration of the passion in being the key player for PETRONAS human capital growth.

Alfie Mahathir Semani, Manager of Kimanis Petroleum Training Centre (KTC); Datuk (Datu) Rosmadi Datu Sulai, Director General of Sabah State Public Service; En. Syed Mohamad Muhafiz Syed Bakar, Head of Human Capital Investment, PETRONAS Group Human Resource Management.

The graduation scrolls were handed to the graduates by Director General of Sabah State Public Service Datuk (Datu) Rosmadi Datu Sulai.

In his speech at the ceremony, Datu Rosmadi said: “We are indeed thankful that despite the numerous challenges faced by the industry globally, PETRONAS remains unwavering in its commitment towards investing in education and human capital development particularly in the Sabah state.”

This includes the setting up of KTC, construction of MRSM Ranau, annual award of the PETRONAS Education Sponsorship Programme for students to pursue tertiary education, Vocational Institutions Sponsorship and Training Assistance (VISTA) programme with five identified institutions in the state which aims to develop the technical and vocational capabilities of Sabahan youths, as well as other numerous programmes that serve the major aim to nurture talents for the state and the nation, he said.

Chief Executive Officer of PETRONAS Technical Training Sdn Bhd, En. Idris Ibrahim, said KTC was set up in 2011 as part of PETRONAS corporate social responsibility programme in Sabah to support the state’s human capital development, particularly in the oil and gas industry.

“KTC is committed to developing and equipping the youths of Sabah with the necessary qualifications and skills required to enroll in the oil and gas industry,” he said at the KTC convocation ceremony.

En. Idris Ibrahim, Chief Executive Officer of PTTSB, delivered his welcoming remarks during the KTC Convocation Ceremony.

Also present were Secretary of Home Affairs and Research, Datuk Awang Shaminan Awang Sahari; Head of Human Capital Investment, PETRONAS Group Human Resource Management, Syed Mohamad Muhafiz Syed Bakar; and Head of PETRONAS Sabah and Labuan, Siti Ayu Abdul Wahab.

KTC is the first institution in Sabah to be recognised as an Accredited Centre by the Department of Skills Development under the Ministry of Human Resources. It offers a three-year full-time diploma-level training in Industrial Instrumentation & Control System – Monitoring & Control (Level 4), Diploma Kemahiran Malaysia (DKM).

Quoting one of the few female graduates, Syra Olivia Rayner, she mentioned about the importance of the vital processes learnt in KTC in performing her tasks in the oil & gas industry. Syra secured a job as an instrumentation technician for a local company in offshore projects quickly after her completion of the training programme, which proves the credibility of a KTC graduate in the Oil & Gas industry.

“Being the only female at my workplace, it is not difficult for me to adjust to my new working environment including working on platforms, because I love working outdoors. Working in oil and gas industry demands teamwork spirit since our skills improvement requires helps from others,” she explained.

INSTEP Continues to Support Developing Countries through Knowledge Transfer

Institut Teknologi Petroleum PETRONAS (INSTEP) continues its commitment to support the growth of global talents of oil and gas industry through strategic collaboration with Malaysian Technical Cooperation Programme since 2017. The supports are in the form of various expertise and knowledge sharing including championing oil and gas technical collaboration amongst developing countries.

 

The collaboration between MTCP and Institut Teknologi Petroleum PETRONAS (INSTEP) continues this year as INSTEP recently hosted the 4th training session under MTCP, which this time around themed ‘Introduction to Petroleum Technology’.

 

The training sessions were carried out for 5 days via Virtual Instructor-Led Training (VILT) which comprised virtual visit to INSTEP facilities, live demonstrations by our industry-experienced instructors, video offerings, professional coaching, and role-plays.

 

This session was attended by 20 participants from various countries, including Algeria (2), Cambodia (2), Jordan (2), Mexico (2), Morocco (1), Oman (2), Suriname (1), Thailand (1), and Uganda (4). Among these are Petroleum Engineer, Geologist, Environmental Affairs Specialist, HR office and so on.

 

The programmes offered the participants an overview of Oil & Gas Industry within Malaysia and enabled them to be familiarised with the industry operations & practices in Malaysia, which include the concepts of HSE elements, sustainability development, Upstream (geology, exploration, drilling, production, etc.), Downstream (refinery & petrochemical), as well as new energy initiatives in Malaysia. The highlight of the programme was the virtual visit to INSTEP Upstream Downstream Training Plant (UDTP), which is a live training platform that re-creates the real-world plant scenarios and allow the learners to upskill their technical competency in day-to-day operation.

Mr. Abir B A Patah, the Plant Engineer at INSTEP took the participants a tour via live demo/telecast around the Upstream Downstream Training Plant (UDTP).

One of the participants from Uganda National Oil Company (UNOC), Lilian Nyakuni, said, “As a HR Professional in the Oil & Gas sector, the programme has given me a detailed insights of how and what our technical staff are going through in delivering their daily objectives and goals. After the programme, I know how to better support them and to create talent management strategies that are fit for our technical workforces like how INSTEP does.”

As a technical centre of excellence, INSTEP aspires to be a trusted and preferred technical learning solutions partner in the oil & gas industry and beyond. The collaboration with MTCP demonstrates INSTEP’s significant role in accelerating the human capital development not only within Malaysia, but also in the international horizon.
