Aberdeen Gets New Drilling Well Control Center
Survivex revealed Monday that it is launching a new drilling well control center of excellence in Aberdeen.
The company, which is part of the 3T Energy Group, said it has invested a six-figure sum into the new facility, which is located within its existing training center near Aberdeen International Airport. As a result of the investment, two new instructor roles have been created at the Survivex site in Aberdeen.
The facility, accredited by the International Well Control Forum, features the latest generation of drilling simulation technology, according to Survivex. The center will be used to train drilling and well control personnel in the onshore and offshore oil and gas industry, in an aim to boost competence and safety, Survivex noted. The new facility will officially open on March 26.
“We are delighted to add drilling well control training to our extensive portfolio of more than 450 industry-approved courses for the global energy sector,” Paul Knowles, vice president of UK and Europe at 3T Energy Group, said in a company statement.
“The wider 3T Energy Group has world-leading expertise in the areas of drilling and well control and it made sense to bring this extensive knowledge within our training business to help increase competency levels and improve safety across the oil and gas industry,” he added.
“This facility stands head and shoulders above any other drilling and well control training center in Aberdeen and will help raise standards across the entire drilling and well control sector,” he continued.
Survivex describes itself as the premier training provider for the global energy sector. The company has been in operation since 2011, but has a training history that spans two decades, according to its website. Survivex has trained over 350,000 delegates and has 25 OPITO accreditations, its website shows.
