Petrofac Training Services has been awarded a contract for training and emergency response services with energy developer, Statoil (U.K.) Limited. In the new five-year training partnership, Petrofac will provide a wide range of HSE (health safety and environment) services, including survival, fire, and marine training.
The training will help support Statoil’s personnel working on the Hywind and Dudgeon offshore wind projects, located in the North Sea.
“We are delighted to have been appointed as Statoil’s preferred supplier which reflects the strength and depth of our capabilities, experience and facilities in the UK,” said James Kirk, Director of Training Services, West, Petrofac Engineering & Production Services. “Throughout the contract our specialist teams will be focused on maintaining and enhancing the knowledge, expertise, and skillset of Statoil’s talent-pool to support safe and efficient on-going operations of its assets and facilities in the North Sea.”
A key aspect of the contract will be the development of a full training and support program for Statoil’s incident management and wider emergency response teams, ensuring preparedness ahead of any potential incident scenario. This will include the delivery of major emergency response training, emergency response exercises, relative response training, and reviewing of plans.
“Despite the challenges our industry continues to face, competency of our respective workforces remain a top priority,” added Kirk. “As a result we will provide a highly integrated and flexible delivery model aligned to Statoil’s needs.”
