The Managing Director of Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC), Mr. Mutiu Sunmonu, has stated that the oil firm’s strategy to develop manpower for Nigeria’s oil and gas industry is overseas scholarships.

He also assured that the SPDC would recruit the beneficiaries of its overseas scholarship schemes if they excel in their studies and demonstrate the right skills to beat the competition and win placements in Shell.

Sunmonu stated these yesterday at the Rivers State University of Science and Technology (RSUST), Port Harcourt, at the award/farewell ceremony for the ten 2011 beneficiaries of the Anglo/Dutch oil giant’s Niger Delta Postgraduate Scholarship Scheme.

He said the scheme, started last year, was designed by the SPDC to give talented students from the three Niger Delta coastal states of Bayelsa, Delta and Rivers an opportunity to further their education in fields relevant to the oil and gas industry in the United Kingdom universities.
