The move comes as Petrofac “refocuses” its UK training offering, leading to the divestment of its in-person training business north of the Border.
It said 104 employees have moved to training provider 3t Energy Group as part of the sale of Petrofac’s survival and marine, health and safety, fire and major emergency management capability and facilities in Aberdeen and Montrose.
Global head of Petrofac training services, Patty Eid, said: “We have refocused our North Sea offering with an emphasis on digital competency management, online learning and emergency response.
“Our UK training instructors have been bringing people home safely for four decades, setting many firsts along the way. We’re exceptionally proud of that heritage, and the contribution of the team over that time.
“We thank them for their service and look forward to their continued success under the stewardship of 3t Energy Group.”
Kevin Franklin, chief executive of 3t Energy Group, added: “Buying Petrofac’s UK in-person training presence was an excellent opportunity that we had to explore. It allows us to extend our customer offering and demonstrates our commitment to providing the very best training to the energy industry.
“We’re proud that our state-of-the-art training makes our clients’ businesses safer, more efficient and more profitable. With Petrofac’s strong training pedigree and world-class staff, the acquisition both broadens and strengthens our market leading offer.”
3t Energy Group can counts the likes of BP, Shell, Total, Wood, Saudi Aramco, Transocean and Schlumberger among its clients.
