Petrofac refocuses UK training business

In line with its strategy to combine industry expertise with technology to accelerate and assure competence, and support best-in-class emergency response, Petrofac is refocusing its UK training offering and has divested its in-person training business in Scotland.

104 employees will move to acquiring training provider 3t Energy Group as part of the sale of Petrofac’s survival and marine, health and safety, fire and major emergency management capability and facilities in Aberdeen and Montrose.

Petrofac’s training offering in the UK will now comprise:

  • digital content development, including eLearning courses, specialist simulation and animation
  • provision of proprietary learning and competency management software, which hosts digital training content and manages and tracks workforce competency
  • emergency response and crisis management services, delivered virtually and from the Emergency Response Service Centre

Commenting, Global Head of Petrofac Training Services, Patty Eid said: “We are refocusing our North Sea offering with an emphasis on digital competency management, online learning and emergency response. Further afield, these skills continue to bolster our international training proposition and pursuit of in-country value, by providing our global client-base and their workforce development and nationalisation programmes, with access to the latest digital tools.

“Our UK training instructors have been bringing people home safely for four decades, setting many firsts along the way. We’re exceptionally proud of that heritage, and the contribution of the team over that time. We thank them for their service and look forward to their continued success under the stewardship of 3t Energy Group.”
