Brunei Methanol Company Sdn Bhd (BMC) Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Jesús Enrique Mora Marín emphasised that learning is the foundation for all-round development to advance a career at any level.
He said this when BMC received an educational visit from Politeknik Brunei (PB) Lumut Campus students led by Educational Officer Ahmad Bukhari bin Haji Emran yesterday.
Deputy CEO Abdul Mu’izz bin Dato Paduka Haji Alikhan echoed this, adding that the students are the nation’s future.
He encouraged the students to ask questions during the session. This is not only for academic achievement but also for personal development, Abdul Mu’izz said.
Attended by 29 students studying Level 5 Diploma in chemical engineering, this is the first batch of chemical engineering students at PB Lumut Campus visiting BMC.
BMC believes in exposing students to a real working environment in the downstream industry, to help them gain a better understanding of the operational and safety aspects of a methanol plant before their industrial placements.
Meanwhile, BMC safety inspector Andy Mengga anak Ibang delivered a safety briefing to the students.
The students also had an interactive session with the engineers from the operation and process safety team on an array of topics including the processes of producing methanol; principles and operations of process control and instrumentation; health, safety and environment (HSE) management and process safety.
The visit concluded with a tour of the plant facilities, led by the operation and HSE team.
