TotalEnergies supports technical skill training

This was in light of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed earlier in March between TEP PNG, POM Tech and the Department of Higher Education, Research, Science and Technology to address inconsistencies in power supply along with supplementary education equipment, to allow for a conducive workspace for all students. 

In attendance to witness the event was the Head of Societal Development for TotalEnergies Exploration and Production (EP), Claudine Chavee, who is in country this week from the Headquarters in Paris.
