ABU DHABI - The ongoing massive investments in the Gulf petroleum has created a shortage of specialised workforce and the problem is expected to become acute by the year 2008 when more than 58,000 people would be needed.

To bridge this demand-supply gap of specialised manpower, Al Hamed Establishment, a subsidiary of the Bin Butti group of companies, signed yesterday a strategic partnership with Worldwideworker Services to provide specialised technical labour for the oil and  gas industry in Abu Dhabi and Qatar.

Shaikh Hamed bin Khadem bin Butti Al Hamed, CEO of the Bin Butti group, speaking at a press conference on the sidelines of ADIPEC 2004, said that such an agreement with an international partner will make available a new database of technically qualified candidates in the oil and gas industry.
