Recent Projects - August

September 1, 2014

We’ve been busy in August working with the a few of the largest international oil and gas companies. Read below to find out about our training programmes with each of them.


  • In Munster, Western Australia we were training with Shell Prelude staff to give them an introduction to centrifugal gas compressors and steam turbines. We created a custom course for Shell and ACEPT Challenger TAFE students which combined topics from our Control and Operation of Centrifugal Gas Compressors as well as our Control and Operation of Industrial Gas Turbines courses.
  • In Kintore, Aberdeenshire, two Shell Academy staff members attended our 5 day, intensive Control Room Operations Simulator “"PEARL”" course at our training centre in Scotland. We schedule this course on an in-house basis with only two delegates to ensure the maximum amount of interaction with the simulators and guidance from the trainer.

Chevron - In the centre of Perth, Western Australia we have been working with Chevron Gorgon staff on our Control and Operation of Centrifugal Gas Compressors course. In the month of August, we had trained 40 of Chevron Gorgon’ staff members and will continue to work with the company and their staff to ensure competence in the coming year.

Single Buoy Moorings - In Houston, Texas this month we were working with SBM Atlantia, conducting FPSO training. We ran our technical “Design and Operation of FPSOs” course as well as our non-technical FPSOs course for the company. The course went very well and we hope to continue to work with SBM in North America and world-wide in the coming months.

ConocoPhillips - Another heavily interactive 5 day CRO (Control Room Operations) course was held at our Scotland training centre, this time with long-time, world-wide customer, ConocoPhillips. The course went very well, with delegate’ feedback as below:

"Overall I really enjoyed the course. I have gained confidence because the course helped to underpin my experience and knowledge of control room operations. The hands on experience of the simulator was my favourite aspect of the course. I am happy with my performance on the course. Instructor was very knowledgeable and patient which helped bring out the best in me."

"I have gained a lot more within the past 5 days, certainly more than expected. I have gained far more knowledge in logic control and thinking about the consequences of making ‘small changes’ in general control room operation this helping me to understand how to keep a plant running steady."
