Statoil’s offshore apprentices gather in Bergen

Apprentices who are going to work for Statoil on the Norwegian continental shelf, 33 of them, gathered Wednesday at the VilVite Bergen science center to meet with their instructors.

This year Statoil is recruiting 131 apprentices. On Wednesday, September 2, they started on the introduction programme they must complete before they start working for the Norwegian oil and gas major.

The offshore apprentices will follow the regular rotation schedule of two-week shifts on a platform, Statoil has informed.

“We will distribute the offshore apprentices on several of our platforms. We want to supervise them properly to ensure that they are well prepared for pursuing a career within their area of expertise,” says Roger Vikan, head of the competence center offshore unit, who is responsible for distributing the apprentices on the company’s platforms.

While the offshore apprentices met in Bergen, the apprentices at Statoil’s onshore facilities at Melkøya, Rotvoll, Tjeldbergodden, Sture/Kollsnes, Mongstad, Kårstø and Porsgrunn started on their programme.

Sixty of the apprentices joining Statoil this year will work on chemical processes, but other disciplines such as industrial mechanics, automation and electrical engineering are also welcoming new apprentices these days.

Statoil notes that the apprentices come from all parts of Norway.

At the kick-off gatherings, the new apprentices get an insight into Statoil’s history, values, HSE and apprentice programme, the company says.

The Norwegian company added that during the next few days, the apprentices will take compulsory courses adapted to their discipline and place of training before they start the apprenticeship in their respective departments.
