In parallel to its aspiration, the Company has increased their efforts to strengthen its entire workforce in order to support this growth with proper personal development of our people, both onshore and offshore.In 2011, BGC began operating its own Fleet Management department where all operational aspects within Brunei’s LNG Fleet are managed by a team consisting of local BGC staff and STASCO. The aim is to prepare and establish BGC as a competent and reliable ship manager of its own fleet and potentially others.
The Bruneianisation Program is an initiative in support of His Majesty’s Government to see the involvement of Bruneians in all aspects of the Oil and Gas industry. Introduced in 1999, it also seeks to increase Bruneian resources, provide sustainable employment and development of Bruneians in the Maritime Industry.
During the Yayasan Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Hari Raya Celebration in 2017, His Majesty the Sultan and Yang DiPertuan of Negara Brunei Darussalam in his Titah, urged all Bruneians, especially local talent to step up into key leadership positions.
At BGC, maximizing the number of Bruneian seafarers has always been and will continue to be an integral part of how the company grows and develops. While we focus on developing our Bruneians to fill key leadership positions, we continue to maintain an external mindset and ensure adequate transfer of knowledge, to prevent the Bruneian seafarer skill-pool from becoming insular and isolated from developments and latest practices from other parts of the industry. This strategy is in line with our aims to be the leading developer of local shipping and maritime skills in support of Brunei’s Vision 2035.
