Well Intervention testing
The test facilities are excellent for testing and development of well intervention related technology.
The combination of theoretical and practical training has a great HSE advantage; the number of potential work site accidents can be reduced when the operator, through training, gains experience in actual surroundings. We can offer courses within Well Intervention and production process trades. In addition to our standard courses, our customers are welcome to ask for customized course-combinations to suit their needs and thereby give them an optimal training result.
