Offshore training partnership

The Shell Robert Training and Conference Centre in Louisiana has established a new partnership with Maersk Training, which will see the global safety specialists deliver enhanced training to the Gulf of Mexico offshore workforce.


Matthew Roberts, Maersk Training’s operations manager said: “This facility takes us to a new level in what we can offer to the market. Our ambition is to integrate our high-end simulators with basic safety and survival training to create a truly holistic and fully integrated learning experience for our customers from beginning to end.”

“Our courses provide essential industry training while also focusing on the root causes of failures and common issues, such as communication,” added Tyler Hamm, business development manager at Maersk Training.

“We are excited to kick off our Lifeboat Centre of Excellence initiative with Maersk Training, as these skills are paramount to safely operating in the Gulf of Mexico. The lessons learned from physically launching and handling a survival craft at our centre far exceed what is capable on most platforms,” noted Michael Marciante, operations manager at Shell Robert.

Carmen Berry, Shell Robert training and development manager noted: “This significant investment shows not only our level of concern for the safety and well-being of our Shell personnel and contractors, but also the entire Gulf of Mexico.”
