Chevening and Petrofac

Petrofac have been partnering with Chevening for three years. 

Petrofac says: 'Sharing experiences with scholars provides great satisfaction for Petrofac. One of the main objectives of Petrofac is to provide staff development and training within the company. Chevening shares the Petrofac vision through the contribution of scholarships to individuals from all backgrounds with a mixture of talent, experience, and drive. Ana Maria Alpizar, our scholarship awardee who is a successful lawyer, was given a great opportunity to continue growing through the Chevening Scholarships.'

For Petrofac it is very important to make a meaningful contribution in the development of the people from the countries where they operate, and being part of the Chevening family gives a great opportunity to Petrofac.
