Maersk Training Signs Drilling Simulation Training Agreement with Statoil

Maersk Training has signed a global framework agreement with Statoil to provide drilling simulation training for the next three years with an option to extend for additional two years.

As part of the deal, Maersk Training and its partners Oiltec and eDrilling will “challenge and develop” Statoil employees through realistic simulator programs, according to a Maersk statement. The aim of the training is to assist the drilling and well teams detect issues earlier and be able to react to, or potentially recover from, critical events in the safest and most efficient way.

Training will primarily take place in Stavanger, Norway, with Maersk Training facilities in Aberdeen, Houston, Rio de Janeiro and Dubai also setup to accommodate Statoil’s needs.

“Our global presence and state-of-the-art facilities, which include fully immersive simulators to make training as close to reality as possible, means we can provide high-quality learning in a cost-effective manner. We are convinced that this focus will further improve Statoil’s operational efficiency and cut non-productive time,” said Maersk Training CEO Claus Bihl.
