The Hassi Messaoud training centre was upgraded and modernised in 2019, with authorisation and approval from Algeria’s Minister of Training and Professional Education, and has a capacity for up to 400 delegates annually. Facilities include well equipped, air-conditioned classrooms and large open workshops with state-of-the art equipment.
The curriculum covers five specialist trade areas - Instrumentation, Electrical, Mechanical, Pipework and Welding - with a strong emphasis on health and safety. Petrofac’s best-in-class applied training methodology provides students with the theoretical knowledge and essential practical skills they need to work in their chosen professional discipline upon graduation.
Locally recruited trainees have also been supporting Petrofac’s latest key projects at both the Tinrhert Field and Ain Tsila Development, in Southern Algeria. Activities are now in advanced stages. When completed, they will produce gas, LPG and condensate, for the local Algerian market and for export, enabling economic growth in-country.
