COMPANY DATA

A Brief history/Background of the Company/Company Profile


Philippine National Oil Corporation-Energy Development Corporation
(PNOC-EDC), now the Energy Development Corporation (EDC) is the
Philippines largest producer of geothermal energy with a total of 700 MW. It

was incorporated and registered to the Philippine Securities and Exchange


Commission on March 5, 1976. It is primarily involved in the business of
exploring, developing and operating geothermal energy projects in the country.
B Inclusive Dates of Training
The trainee attended the student traineeship orientation of EDC last
April 11, 2016 at the Milagro Admin Complex. She and other student trainees
was oriented about her area of assignment and the companys policies and
procedures on safety, security and discipline where she was encouraged to take
the initiative to ask the employees for better understanding of their work and
the companys operation. The lessons and facts she learned during the
orientation was indeed useful and served as guide during the entire training.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF
THE TRAINING
PROGRAM

A Objectives
On-the-Job-Training (OJT) or the course Industry Immersion is a part of
the Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering curriculum mandated by the
Commission on Higher Education (CHED) as it requires a student to have a two
hundred forty (240) hours practicum in a relevant work environment.
As to what Mr. Manuel C. Paete, Vice President of EDC, said during the
orientation of student trainees that OJT narrows the gap between the academe
and industry. It validates what students have learned in school and what they
have not; either way OJT gives a student an opportunity to learn.
Upon the completion of this course, the trainee is expected to have had
related theories learned in school to the actual technical and/or practical solutions
to industrial problems; familiarized with varied plant operations and processes,

operational techniques used and current management control; developed


responsible attitude and self-motivation by systematically handling tasks in
design and other activities relevant to chemical engineering and; developed good
human relations in industrial operations.

B Areas of Training
This part narrates the activities that the student trainee had gone through
which includes the observation, participation, interaction and challenges during
her training.
EMD Operations. The Environmental Management Group was established
in 1978 to set the pace in environmental compliance of the energy sector. This
group was separated which allowed the formation of different departments such
as the Watershed Management Department and the Environmental Management
Department. EMD is concerned in water, air and noise quality monitoring, waste
and chemical management of the company.
Water Quality Management. One of EMDs

function

is

the

water

quality monitoring of surface water, project water and groundwater across EDCs
project site. Water quality data are used to characterize waters, identify trends
over time, identify emerging problems, determine whether pollution control
programs are working, help direct pollution control efforts to where they are most
needed, and respond to emergencies such as floods and spills. The trainee had
experienced water sampling in areas identified as sampling sites where she had
accompanied Mr. Eddie B. Lawas, the EMD field technician. The trainee was
taught by Mr. Lawas on proper water sampling procedures.

Figure 1. Water quality monitoring.


The trainee also learned to prepare samples for shipment to a third party
laboratory in Manila for analysis of some parameters such as heavy metals
analysis that cannot be analyzed in the ILS and EMD Laboratory.

Figure 2. Filtration of samples to be acidified.


When the trainee was assigned to the EMD Laboratory which is a part of
the Integrated Laboratory Service of EDC. She was able to watch and observe Mr.
Allan C. Derequito, a chemical technician, analyze water samples for boron
content using the Carmine method. The trainee then encoded the boron data
results of the samples for data recording since she wasnt allowed to do a hands on
work for boron determination because the method used sulfuric acid in the process
which requires expert handling skills to avoid accident.
The trainee was able to analyze the samples chloride concentration using
the Argentometric method under the supervision of Engr. Ma. Liza T. Tumanda.
The trainee was hesitant in the inside at first because she wasnt able to conduct
any laboratory experiment for a long time which she was ashamed to admit.
However she was able to overcome it thru the help Engr. Tumanda and her
calmness that guided her in every step of the process. She was also pleased to Mr.
Derequito that taught her how to use the pipette properly.
Air & Noise Quality Management. DENR regulations limit the release of
hydrogen sulfide into the environment to 0.07 ppm as stated in RA 8749 or the
Philippine Clean Air Act of 1999. It is in the initial list of hazardous air

pollutants for National Ambient Air Quality Standards in source specific air
pollutants from industrial sources/ operations.
Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is a colorless gas that is harmless in small
quantities, but is often regarded as an annoyance due to its distinctive rotten-egg
smell.

It is a noncondesable gas which can be lethal in high doses. Individuals

living near a gas and oil drilling operation may be exposed to higher levels of
hydrogen sulfide. EDC is therefore required by law to measure and control an
acceptable level of H2S exposure for their employees and surrounding civilians.

Figure 3. Air quality monitoring using the Jerome H2S Analyzer.


The trainee learned to accurately detect the presence of H 2S using the
Jerome Hydrogen Sulfide Analyzer. She was taught by Mr. Fredeirick Sarzosa on
how to download data from the data logger and to program it for autosampling
every ten minutes. Autosample mode option is a specification of the Jerome H 2S
analyzer to monitor air quality over a period of time and saves the data which can
be exported onto a spreadsheet for further analysis.

Figure 4. Discrete Air Quality Monitoring

Noise pollution from geothermal plants is typically considered during three


phases: the well-drilling and testing phase, the construction phase, and the plant
operation phase.

It is minimized by the use of noise-muffling techniques and

equipment such as silencers and noise absorptive interior walls. During EDCs plant
operation

noise

is

monitored

weekly

by

the

Environmental

Management

Department.

Figure 5. Noise quality monitoring.


The trainee had also witnessed some activities of the department such as the
due diligence made with Cleanaway Philippines at Isabel, Leyte; the public
consultation at Kananga for ECC filing and; the Safety Training Observation
Program (STOP).
The trainees most favorite part of the training was the plant tour at Green
Core Geothermal Inc., Cleanaway Phil., where she was amazed even just by seeing
the rig, cooling towers, turbine, control room and the bulb eater.

PERSONAL
EVALUATION OF THE
TRAINING PROGRAM

Significant Achievements
After the training, the trainee was able to learn and understand
the process that was done in the GCGI plant, the environment laws
that governs EDC and the methods in conducting water, noise and air
sampling.

Technical skills and new technology


machinery, testing apparatus handled

learned

and

Equipment,

The trainee was able to learn how to operate the water quality
monitor and the Jerome analyzer during the training. This new
knowledge and skills that the trainee learned will be useful once she
will be working in the industry someday.
She also learned the procedure in stream flow rate measuring,
chloride and boron water analysis and was able to use a digital
titrator.
3

Experiences of the company personnel involved in the training


The trainee was able to adjust to the working place because of the
welcoming attitude of the personnel in the company. The trainee is so
grateful to be a part of the EMD family.

Strong points

Able to sustain all the knowledge and learnings that the trainee
wants to earn.
Availability of the resources and materials for hands-on activities

Weak points and suggested solutions

WEAK POINT
Unfollowed timeline of activities.
Short training duration.

SUGGESTED SOLUTIONS
Follow each scheduled activity or assign
other task related to it.
Increase the time duration of the
training.

RECOMMENDATIONS

A Potential of the company as a training ground


Base on the experience of the trainee, Energy Development
Corporation is considered to have the potential to be a training ground,
especially for Chemical Engineering students. Chemical Engineer is a

very broad career, and EDC can accommodate the areas of a Chemical
Engineer.
Before, or maybe some of the companies today, the OJTs are
assigned only in the office even their chosen field does not reflect to
office works. But in EMD, the trainee will be exposed to its area of
specialty and able to perform hands on activities. Every task has a
reason/explanation that which the trainee was offered with the
maximized knowledge and learnings.
B Duration of training
The 30 days (240 hours) of stay in the company was not enough
to sustain the trainees learnings about her area of specialty. The
training should be at least 60-90 days. This is to maximize the
knowledge of the trainee and able to absorb all the learnings that was
taught.
C Suggestions for the improvement of the training program
Based on experience, before turning over a trainee to their
assigned area, supervisors that will be assigned to handle the trainees
should be oriented. This is to make them aware and be able to prepare
for the trainees activity, so that when the trainee arrives, the supervisor
will not reject the trainee just because he is busy.
D Advise to the future On-the-Job Trainees
To the future on-the-Job trainees, make use of the opportunity
that was given to you in learning the real life working experience.
Maximize your learning capacity and dont be afraid to explore
new and unfamiliar adventures. Do not be shy! Speak and ask. Do
not be afraid of committing mistakes. What you learned in a
school will not be fully applied in the working area thus put your
time in learning what they do. Treat everyone with respect, even
the person with the lowest position. And most of all, choose the
company that is able to sustain the knowledge, learnings and
experience you want to earn.
