ROSEN Group, the globally leading provider of cutting-edge solutions in all areas of the integrity process chain has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with AverNoble, a technical and professional development company to elevate the competency of the local talent in the Oil, Gas, and Hydrogen (OGH) sector. Their knowledge programme, The Competence Club is set to redefine the landscape of pipeline competence in Malaysia by bringing world-class knowledge and best practices in pipeline integrity to the forefront.

The evolving landscape within the pipeline industry demands a workforce equipped with skills that are aligned to developments in the OGE sector, incorporating technology and innovative approaches for sustainable business growth. Competency certifications, crucial for professionals in these sectors, often failed to encompass the latest industry trends and technologies, leaving the local workforce ill-equipped to address modern challenges. 

In recognition of the industry’s challenges, ROSEN and AverNoble are aiming to enhance the competence of the Oil, Gas and Hydrogen industry by offering a comprehensive pipeline integrity program tailored specifically to address the unique requirements of the local community. 

Michelle Unger, ROSEN’s Global Head of Education Services, emphasised the significance of this partnership, stating “Our aim is to bridge the gap between global knowledge and local needs in Malaysia. By joining forces with AverNoble, we can offer a specialised pipeline integrity program that caters directly to the O&G community. This partnership marks a new era of excellence in the field.” 

ROSEN will also introduce a new series dedicated to hydrogen, a key element in the transition from gas to H2 in pipelines. This series, developed by ROSEN in collaboration with industry leaders and universities, is designed to ensure the safe and seamless transition to hydrogen. 

Anusia Ramasamy, CEO of AverNoble expressed enthusiasm about the opportunities this partnership creates. “The Competence Club is a great portal and cornerstone of our commitment to education and knowledge sharing. We are excited to broaden its horizons and introduce cutting-edge content like the hydrogen series, enabling Malaysians to excel in the evolving industry landscape.”

This collaboration is set to empower Malaysians with a global platform for interaction with subject matter experts and easy access to a wealth of knowledge, all at their fingertips. Together, we look forward to making a lasting impact on the pipeline competence landscape in Malaysia.
