Recent Projects - September

October 6, 2014

It has been a busy Autumn at ESD Simulation Training, as we have been working with the following top oil and gas companies in order to ensure that their staff have the utmost technical knowledge in their respective fields.


  • At our training centre in Aberdeenshire, Scotland we were working with two of Shell's staff members on our Control Room Operations course. This course is heavily hands-on and delegates work with our top-class "PEARL" simulator to demonstrate control room scenarios.
  • Also at our training centre in Aberdeenshire, we worked with four of Shell's employees on our custom "Shearwater Overview" training course. The course covers in detail, the complexity of the processes on the platform. 
  • South of Perth, Western Australia at the ACEPT Challenger TAFE campus in Munster, we were training with Shell Prelude staff on a custom course dedicated to introducing centrifugal gas compressors and steam turbines to the group. 

Subsea 7 - At their office in Aberdeen, Scotland we ran our "Subsea Systems - A Non-Technical Overview" course for their support staff to increase their ability to assist their more technical colleagues.

TAQA Bratani - Two of Taqa's employees attended our Control Room Operations Simulator "PEARL" course at our training centre in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. This course is heavily hands-on and delegates work with our top-class "PEARL" simulator to demonstrate control room scenarios.

BP Exploration - We sent our trainer, David Llewellyn to Falkirk to train staff working at the Kinneil Grangemouth refinery on centrifugal gas compressors. This was a 3 day course which covered the control and operation of centrifugal compressors. 

Chevron - In Perth, Western Australia, we were training Gorgon staff on centrifugal gas compressors. Our trainer, Gareth Pemberton, customised this course which detailed Gorgon compressor operations. 

Santos - A three day centrifugal gas compressors course was held in Adelaide, South Australia for Santos Ltd. staff. 

Nexen - Non-technical employees at Nexen Petroleum in the UK attended our "The Oil and Gas Industry - A Non-Technical Overview" course, which is a one day course designed to improve industry knowledge of support staff.

Origin - A centrifugal gas compressors course for Origin Reedy Creek staff was run in Brisbane, Queensland in Australia. Many of the students enjoyed the course with one mentioning that their favourite aspect was the "relevance to our industry equipment through a well structured training course."

Bluewater - We sent our trainer, Peter Watson, to the Netherlands to run a "Production Process and Emergency Systems on Oil and Gas Installations" course for Bluewater employees. The course was well received with delegates saying that their favourite aspects of the course were "the simulation models", "the group exercises" and "the videos."
