Technical Training for Oil & Gas Industry Leaders

Client :  IOCs, NOCs, OFS and EPCs

Date and Duration :  2003 – Ongoing

Place of Performance :  Across Middle East and Africa

Requirement

As IOCs, NOCs, OFS and EPCs operations across the Middle East and Africa increase, they have a greater responsibility and requirement to provide training for local national and expatriate personnel.

We have a strong track-record in supporting the energy sector in industry-specific vocational training, HSE, English language and security operations both in-country and IOC home countries.
