Petrofac has agreed a five-year relationship with Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) for the provision of specialist technical training and competency development services.

The contract, which is valued at more than US$35 million, was secured following a competitive tendering process and is effective immediately. The work will be undertaken within Kuwait by the Training Services team who form part of Petrofac’s Engineering & Production Services division.

Petrofac will support KOC in reviewing and updating its competency systems and will develop and deliver technical training programmes to enhance the capability of its operations and maintenance personnel.

Karim Osseiran, Vice President, Training Services, Engineering & Production Services, East said: “This is a highly innovative, long-term project. A team of more than 30 training professionals and technical specialists from Petrofac will be embedded within KOC’s operations to deliver skills and competency-based learning and development services at the frontline of production operations.

“The award clearly demonstrates KOC’s commitment to its people and the importance it places on the development of competency and skills within its workforce. This project will build legacy value through the development of systems and processes to operationalise human capability development where it matters the most, in the field. We are delighted to have the opportunity to support KOC throughout this journey and look forward to making a real difference to performance.”
