Maersk Training Open State-of-the-art Simulation Facility in Houston

Maersk Training is setting a new benchmark in the industry for advanced operational simulation training. It has set out to raise the bar for safety and competence in offshore drilling and maritime operations with a strong focus on human factor elements alongside operational performance.

A large group of senior executives from major oil companies, offshore drilling contractors, maritime companies and service contractors attended the ribbon cutting ceremony in Houston on Thursday.

“Our Houston simulation facility has always been a big cornerstone of Maersk Training’s global growth strategy. We want to create a step-change in the level of competence in the oil and gas industry as well as in the way competence is developed and improved, by influencing how the industry works with safety and operational performance,” said Claus Bihl, CEO of Maersk Training. “Our main focus will be on operational simulation and integrating Human Factors, including teamwork, procedural discipline, communication, decision-making and situational awareness—all of this with the aim to safeguard and improve safety and productivity.”

Earlier this year, BP signed a five-year global agreement with Maersk to provide additional advanced training for their offshore rig crews.

“This facility represents an important investment in our people and in our future,” said Gary Jones, head of BP’s Global Wells Organization. “Our safety and operational performance depends on high-functioning, integrated teams. These programs will continue to develop the talents of BP’s global offshore workforce and the contractors we work with as part of our commitment to safe and reliable operations.”

The advanced simulation complex allows oil and gas companies to test planned operations in a life-like but safe simulated environment, making sure that crews are optimally prepared before they engage in the actual operation, to increase safety, save time and be better prepared to handle unexpected events. The hands-on, scenario-based training goes well beyond traditional classroom training. It allows teams to practice events and joint procedures together as an integrated unit, rather than as individual contributors.
