Firm has won and extended contracts across the Middle East region
Petrofac has announced that it has secured several new contracts and extensions in the region, to provide training solutions for clients in the UAE, Oman and Iraq.
“These contract awards demonstrate the continued expansion of our differentiated training services offering in key countries, where supporting the national workforce development agenda is core to our approach. Petrofac has a strong track record in delivering large scale projects and solutions focused on the transfer of knowledge and technology, that have significant contribution to delivering in-country value,” said Karim Osseiran, Petrofac’s global head (Training Services).
According to a statement, in Oman, the company won two new contracts for the provision of HSE and technical training solutions and a contract extension for the provision of assessment services.
A new contract has also been awarded for the delivery of an internationally accredited operations and maintenance training programme, which will be delivered via the Takatuf Petrofac Oman (TPO) training centre in Muscat. The TPO facility was opened by Petrofac and its partner Takatuf Oman in late 2018, to provide training for the country’s next generation of workforce for the industry.
In the UAE, the firm secured a contract for the provision of on-the-job technical training and other specialised services to support a client’s oil and gas training facility.
In its statement, Petrofac notes that a British oilfield services company remains committed to the continuous development of the Iraqi workforce and, accordingly, that a contract has been renewed to deliver training solutions.
