Statoil, Maersk Training sign global drilling simulation agreement

STAVANGER, Norway -- Maersk Training has signed a global framework agreement with Statoil to provide drilling simulation training for the next three years with an option to extend for an additional two years.

Statoil identified a need for advanced drilling simulation training and theory courses in order to reduce the time used for training offshore and to increase safety, operational understanding and efficiency. The courses are aimed at improving communication within and between teams, and they provide the opportunity to practice difficult operations in a safe environment without impacting live operations.

Maersk Training and its partners Oiltec and eDrilling will leverage a portfolio of well-specific cases and events to challenge and develop Statoil employees. There will be a strong focus on best practice for team training and procedural discipline. This will help the drilling and well teams detect issues earlier and be able to react to, or potentially recover from, critical events in the safest and most efficient way.

“Our global presence and state-of-the-art facilities, which include fully immersive simulators to make training as close to reality as possible, means we can provide high-quality learning in a cost-effective manner. We are convinced that this focus will further improve Statoil’s operational efficiency and cut non-productive time,” Claus Bihl, CEO of Maersk Training, said.

Training will primarily take place in Stavanger, Norway, but Maersk Training facilities in Aberdeen, Houston, Rio de Janeiro and Dubai are also setup to accommodate the needs of Statoil.
