Preamble and Forum 2019 objectives

The Petromines Forum is intended as a platform for exchanges between trainers, operators and decision-makers on issues related to the mining and petroleum sectors.

The 1st Petromines Forum 2017 held from 27 to 29 September 2019, had the ambition, among others, to reflect on the issues related to training in Mines and Oil in Cameroon in particular, and in the Central African subregion in general, fluctuations in raw materials prices and the future of learners.

Following this Forum, projections were made with the implementation of new programs, and the agreement with the Ministry of Mines, Industry and Technological Development.

The Petromines Forum 2019 opens the debate on "local content & databases" Although rich in underground resources, Cameroon have an poorly diversified economic structures, weak industrial bases, high unemployment rates and vulnerable economies to fluctuations in raw materials prices.

The mining and petroleum sectors are heavily indexed for the implementation of local content strategies: each sector has its specificities.

In Africa, according to the local content of the APPA (Association of Petroleum Producing Countries in Africa) in 2015, expenses must be incurred by the industry to ensure, among others, the training of human resources and their employment in Africa at different levels of mining chain, as well as the creation of hydrocarbon valorization industries (electric power generation, petrochemicals, LNG, ...).

According to the report of the InterGovernment Forum (IGF, 2018), countries undertaking their first efforts in local content policy, or whose existing links are weak, should focus on measures to stimulate direct employment in the mining and oil sectors. Training efforts are needed to achieve this goal: in local content, training and industry-academia collaboration play a very important role.

According to Jean-Marie Guillermou (2007, TOTAL E & P), the expression of the needs and the reality in Cameroon, Gabon and Congo for the formulations and the rules of the multiple game are really still not expressed, whereas in Nigeria it is is regulated and very ambitious.

The development of Local Content is a long process that requires, among other things: the involvement of the actors concerned (Operators, Contractors and Local Authorities / Host States), ambitions adapted to local contexts, realistic programs and sustainable achievements, the establishment of long-term strategies. The main challenge is therefore the development of a guide on local content policies in the mining and oil sectors in Cameroon.

In the Oil Field, the SNH decided in 2019 to offer some State Universities a Geoscience Laboratory for training. This will allow an increase in the Human Resources Potential in the upstream Petroleum sector, even if in the downstream oil field and mining, there are still many areas of shadows.

If this initiative is commendable, how to train young people without local databases? One of the main challenges for trainers is not only access to local data for implementation, but also learning in the field to ensure sound training and effective capacity building.

The Petromines 2019 Forum will try to make a contribution by trying to put together a guide to local content policies. These policies will aim to increase the quantity and quality of local employment by companies and to develop the skills of the national workforce.

The Petromines Forum 2019 is aimed at operators, contractors, local authorities (States), students seeking knowledge and training adapted to local needs, service companies and consulting.

Governments are the only ones able to influence both the supply and demand for jobs in these sectors.
