Inside BP's Upstream Learning Center
BP plc's latest Upstream Learning Center (ULC), located at the oil major's UK headquarters at Sunbury-upon-Thames, just outside of London, aims to give the company more flexibility in how it trains its workforce around the world.
Slightly smaller than BP's Houston ULC, the Sunbury facility will help the firm to train its European-based staff as well as employees from further afield both on site and via remote learning.
After its completion this summer, BP invited Rigzone to take a look at the center – an offer we jumped at.
The main foyer of the Sunbury ULC consists of a large space in which BP employees attending the facility can meet informally, as well as use various devices to help them learn about BP's business.
There is an interactive table that provides information and data about BP's operations around the world. Visitors can also collect an iPad from the facility's reception that they can use to point to items distributed around the foyer and – thanks to an augmented reality app – learn in detail about those items. For example, using the iPad, Rigzone learned about the different kinds of rock that BP wells encounter around the world.
