Victor graduated from the University of Technology, Papua New Guinea in 2012 with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. Shortly after joining ExxonMobil’s PNG LNG Project in Papua New Guinea, Victor relocated from Port Moresby to Melbourne in late 2012 to commence an early graduate interchange program with ExxonMobil Australia. As an onsite User Support Engineer with the Upstream IT group, Victor provided support for the upstream technical application suite used by the facilities engineers.
“Moving away from family and friends in Papua New Guinea and adapting to the lifestyle of Melbourne was very challenging; however I am so glad I took the opportunity to come work for ExxonMobil Australia. The training both locally and internationally as well as support from peers has been incredible.”
Victor has also worked on the subsurface technical softwares such as Wellview, OFM, OVS and other business related pieces of software like PI and EC. The challenge for Victor is to ensure that issues faced by the engineers relating to technical software are resolved as soon as possible.
“Working as an onsite User Support Engineer is very interesting because you not only provide support for technical software but at the same become very proficient in using the softwares and utilise your engineering knowledge to solve most problems. Mostly importantly you get to meet and network with so many people in the company.”
