World’s First Replica Offshore Platform at KidZania DohaSeptember 2021 saw North Oil Company partner with KidZania to create a world’s first fully functioning replica of an offshore platform at KidZania in Doha. This child-sized platform was created to educate the children of Qatar on both the importance and value that the offshore oil production industry brings to Qatar and the world.
This unique and innovative collaboration gives children a glimpse into the operational processes of one of the world’s largest and most complex oil fields. Responsible for producing 45% of the region's oil, North Oil Company is perfectly geared to share their vision with the children of Qatar.
The platform provides children with a realistic and exciting learning environment that is as fun as it is educational and aligns with the Qatar National Vision 2030 that seeks to develop and empower children.
Children who visit the platform can:
- Pretend to be a part of an oil rig crew
- Undergo oil rig platform training
- Learn all they need to know about offshore oil drilling
This exciting, unique experience teaches children to identify the nature of oil fields and the process of creating oil from start to finish.
We work with schools to give opportunities to younger students to tour our workplace and get an insight into the energy sector. Our employees attend schools to give talks on their roles to students.
We foster close relationships with both local and international universities, with NOC leaders contributing to local university advisory councils and committees.
We support career fairs and career awareness events and work closely with universities in Qatar to promote our National Development and internship programmes.
We also have a high school internship programme that helps students grow, develop and consider careers in the energy sector.
