Smar presented a Foundation Fieldbus course to the Venezuelan petroleum state company (PDVSA) in August, which will significantly strengthen their efforts in penetrating the Latin American petroleum market.

The course was presented at PDSVA Maturín to thirty engineers (primarily from the Engineering and Construction Departments), with the support of the Venezuelan representative Eleinca and Jorge Fandiño (Automation Supervisor of PDVSA). Adriano Teixeira, Applications Engineer from Smar International Division, provided the training in two separate courses to accommodate the large number of participants.
