Miss Rustonlyn S. Dennis, who graduated in 1985 from the UL, was awarded a scholarship to attend the University of Manchester in the United Kingdom where she is currently pursuing a master degree in Petroleum Geology.
According to a release, Miss Dennis’ studies will add an impetus to the Labor power at the APC and also promote the labor policy of Liberia.
The release also said the President of APC, Karl Thompson, has made enormous contributions to the Department of Geology at the University of Liberia and the National Oil Company of Liberia in promoting human capital.
The release noted that because of these contributions and the perseverance to drill two additional wells in spite of the first dried well, the Liberian Geological Community consisting of a group of prominent geologists and geology students present the profile of Mr. Thompson (a fellow geologist) as pioneer in the field in Liberia.
The release also said APC’s well apallis-1 was not successful and it did send a wave of uneasiness in the Liberian Geological Community after the much publicized Liberia’s first deepwater well test, the oil-bearing potential of the Liberian basin.
However, this is said to have not deterred the APC Geological Team and Management to analyze the data from the first well and plan two successful wells.
The release signed Exploration Geologist Rexford C. Sartuh, profiled the ultimate head of the geological team who is also the Chief Executive Officer of APC (Mr. Thomas) who reportedly took the company from “nowhere and obscurity” to the best oil company in Liberia at present.
T he African Petroleum Corporation Limited announcement of a discovery of oil at its third well Bee-Eater-1 has reportedly put Liberia on the map of potential oil producing countries aimed at turning the country’s economy around.
