Oil and gas are considered to be among the world's most prized resources. Hence, no doubtfully, The oil and gas industry plays a significant role in the global economy. Petroleum itself is used for numerous products, in addition to serving as the world's primary fuel source. Furthermore, The processes and Technologies concerned in producing and distributing oil and gas are highly complex, capital-intensive and necessitate state-of-the-art technology , nonetheless , rather more importantly human resources operating these technologies in a safe efficient mode. Here arises main concern ! What will be ideal global unified education and training methodologies to be provided by Maritime education & Training Institutes " MET for these labour in such critical rather indispensable industry? To ensure " Safer Seas & Cleaner oceans" (IMO/ IMCO 1994). This paper will illustrate ideal training & education methodologies to be delivered to these crews, in campus or rather on-board. Highlighting current conventions for promoting skills and inducing quality for such dedicated rather crucial industry.
