Ola Balbaa

Working in the oil and gas industry does not just involve being out on offshore rigs as many people would think. In fact, as the lifecycle of a project moves from the conceptual design stage through to decommissioning, diverse skillsets are required. Also, as you move on to work on a new project it becomes a new challenge and a new excitement.

Ola Balbaa is one of bp Egypt's young female engineers. She has had several roles within the organization both offshore and onshore in spite of her youth. In fact, in 2018 Ola was awarded an important national women's award and is considered an inspiration to young female engineers.
