AIS Survivex, part of the 3t Energy Group, has opened a well-control training centre in Newcastle. It is the only such UK centre outside Aberdeen where AIS Survivex has a well-control Centre of Excellence.
The Newcastle site will deliver scheduled level 3 and level 4 International Well Control Forum-approved courses. It will help meet strong local demand for training, which has so far meant a special trip to Aberdeen.
Well control certificates are mandatory for drilling and associated personnel working in the oil and gas industry. Every two years they need to be renewed to show well-control competency skills are up to date.
In a June 7 statement, Emma Howorth, General Manager England at AIS Survivex, said: “We are delighted to add well control training to the extensive course portfolio at our Newcastle site to give our customers even more choice of where to train.”
She added: ““This investment demonstrates our continued commitment to the oil and gas sector and will help to cement AIS Survivex’s world-class reputation as a key one-stop destination for energy sector training.”
