Seadrill, one of the largest drilling companies in the world, has selected Maersk Training to deliver its Well Control training globally under the accreditation of The International Well Control Forum (IWCF).
According to the press release, the agreement will cover more than 2,000 assistant drillers, drillers, toolpushers, installation managers, derrickmen and subsea engineers when they need to renew their well control certification.
David Gouldin, Drilling and Well Control Manager for Seadrill, said: “This centrally managed approach to the training, continuous improvement and accreditation of our crews will allow us to set the standard in well control training. This is a real game changer. No one else in the industry is doing anything like this, and it cements our position as an industry leader.”
Maersk Training this year also signed agreements to supply training services to BP and Transocean.
Maersk Training CEO Claus Bihl, said: “Our rapid growth reflects the oil and gas industry’s push for improved performance and focus on safety and efficiency”
“Our global presence and facilities, which include fully immersive simulators to make training as close to reality as possible, mean we can provide high-quality learning in a cost effective manner. We are convinced that this focus will help further improve Seadrill’s operational efficiency and cut non-productive time.”
