AN ABERDEEN survival training company is to open a new facility.
Survivex, part of the 3T Energy Group, has invested a six-figure sum into the training centre, which is located within its existing base in Dyce.
It 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.
The investment has led to two new instructor roles being created.
The facility, accredited by the International Well Control Forum (IWCF), features the latest generation of drilling simulation technology, a central command unit where instructors can demonstrate and teach critical drilling and well control techniques and a dedicated assessment room.
Paul Knowles, 3T Energy Group UK and Europe vice president, said: “Our new Drilling Well Control Centre of Excellence features the very latest simulator technology, digital systems and software to give our delegates an unrivalled training experience and fully prepare them for the field.
“This significant investment demonstrates our continued commitment to the oil and gas industry in Aberdeen and will help to cement Survivex’s world-class reputation as a key one-stop destination for energy sector training.”
The new facility will officially open on March 26.
