Petrofac awarded training contract for major north sea development

Petrofac has secured a training management services contract from Maersk Oil in relation to the North Sea High Pressure High Temperature development, Culzean.

The two-year agreement, with a further one year option to extend, was awarded following competitive tender. Under the contract, Petrofac will deliver training across a wide range of subjects, including HSE, survival, fire and marine, whilst also managing and coordinating all third-party training requirements.

Petrofac’s cloud-based Training and Competence Management System, SkillsVX, will also be deployed as part of the contract scope, providing a transparent overview of compliance and assurance, ensuring workforce capabilities are in compliance with operational and regulatory requirements.

As well as training of personnel in the UK, the award includes planning and delivery of training in Singapore, where the Ailsa floating, storage and offloading (FSO) vessel is currently under construction.

Karim Osseiran, Global Head, Training Services, Petrofac Engineering and Production Services, said: “Through the Culzean development, Maersk Oil is making a significant investment in the North Sea’s future so we look forward to drawing on the strength and depth of our experience to support this important development.

“Throughout the duration of the contract, our specialists will focus on ensuring the skills and knowledge of Maersk Oil’s teams are maintained and enhanced, in support of continued safe and efficient operations.”
