Danvic Petroleum International Corporation has unveiled plans to establish a privately owned Petroleum Institute/University to bridge the skill gap in the Nigeria's oil and gas sector.

Besides, the company has produced the second set of graduates from the Danvic Petroleum Training Centre after six months of practical geosciences training.

The Managing Director of the company, Dr. Mayowa Afe, made this disclosure at the 2nd graduation ceremony of Danvic Petroleum Centre in Lagos on Tuesday.

According to him, the petroleum university is expected to bridge the gap between the Nigerian university theory and the practical knowledge needed in the oil and gas industry.

He disclosed that the university would also contribute to the course of local content development in Africa by grooming students to become employable in the oil and gas sector, particularly in the geosciences and petroleum engineering.

Afe said that geoscience graduates from Nigerian universities are lacking in the necessary skills and exposure that oculd guarantee their employability in a multi-task world-class geoscience environment.
