We are pleased to share news about the growth of our New Kids on the Block Program!
Earlier this year Gas Natural Fenosa, the technical manager of our natural gas project, formally joined the program giving technical and institutional support to the initiative which aims to create new opportunities for local students via professional placements.
The partner invited the group to visit two of their factories in Greater Buenos Aires last month. The 16 interns and their tutors visited the Peak Shaving Plant in Rodriguez and the headquarters of the gas company in San Martín.
The excursion was an invaluable experience for the students most of whom had never visited a technical plant. The main objective of the visits was to teach the youths about the different commercial, technical and administrative areas of the company.
During the excursions the students were able to interact with workers from the plants and ask questions about the operations they carry out. The company gave several talks concerning the history, current use and role of natural gas in Argentina.
We are planning more visits in the second half of the year given the success of the excursions. So stay tuned for more news!
