‘Dreams come true’ – Workers move from Brazilian farm to North Sea FPSO – News goes to energy sector

An oil and gas worker traveled from a small rural town in Brazil to the North Sea FPSO, describing it as “a dream come true.”

Eight years ago, Nathan Batisty left Progreston, a company of only 5,000 men, and decided to pursue a career in petroleum engineering.

I decided I wanted more, and my dad didn’t help me become a soccer player, I was too short.

“The opportunities in the region were to go to the city and work in supermarkets if they did not want to work on the farm.

So I agreed with my father to apply for a university entrance exam if I had worked on a much heavier tobacco farm for a year.

Nathan then moved from the city of Rio de Janeiro, 1,200 miles, to the Federal University of Pelotas to become one of the region’s graduates, and he joined the Association of Petroleum Engineers (SPE). ).

He heard that he needed to use gasoline and diesel to light his field tractors, and he heard that his father had “dreamed” of going to the beach to go to the beach. Experience from people in the industry.

The dream was developing, once I started university, I began to see my first jobs, my first courses in geology, and I met new people working in the oil and gas industry, and I could see how exciting the beach was.

To the last barrel

Nathan was scheduled to go to the beach in Brazil, but when he moved to a new role in the UK, with Harbor Energy and VV restrictions restricted, his desire to go to the beach was weakened again.

However, for the team now team development and operational technical engineer, he finally got the chance earlier this year, at Catcher FPSO (Floating Product Storage and Shipping).

He heard, and in some cases correctly, that the ships might be rolling in the harsh North Sea waters, and he likened Catherine “in a building” because of his exploration and stability.

However, the 26-year-old said, “The dream has come true.”

Nathan went into oil and gas and “wanted to do something different,” but many of his peers were unlucky.

In Brazil, Ate Altimo Baril (‘to the end of the barrel’) team has formed a large number of petroleum courses and for unemployed students and young professionals struggling to find work.

We produce a lot of oil but most of the work is with Petrobras. As a result, 60-70% of graduates in Brazil become unemployed or have to move to another area because the oil and gas sector cannot afford them.

Nathan also protested this month in a UK newspaper, explaining why the graduates “do not want a career in oil and gas” and how the industry is becoming “forbidden.”

He said: “It is not true, it may be true in some parts of London, in some parts of England, in some parts of Europe, but the world is bigger than that.

This was one of the “until the last barrel” goals of supporting students in Brazil.
