3t Energy Group Reaches Finals of OEUK Awards with bp Project

The Offshore Safety Awards, organised by Offshore Energies UK (OEUK) and Step Change in Safety, stand together to acknowledge and celebrate the excellent work done to promote safety across the energy industry.

3t Transform part of 3t Energy Group has been shortlisted in the ‘Sharing and Learning’ category for taking an innovative approach to training and competency, particularly its work with bp on the Greater Tortue Ahmeyim (GTA) development.

bp needed to induct and train their operations and maintenance technicians for the GTA project – a multi-billion-dollar gas-producing asset in Senegal and Mauritania, which includes a floating production, storage and offloading vessel (FPSO) spanning a massive 130KM in length.

Dan Page and his team created a digital twin that could be delivered via a training console using virtual reality headsets. The technicians could fully immerse themselves in the project, learn about its layout and safety-critical operating systems and procedures, and conduct competency assessments before the GTA is built.

Gavin Taylor, Vice President of Global Sales at 3t Energy Group, said: “We are delighted to be shortlisted in the Offshore Safety Awards. Working on the GTA project with bp has been a huge honour, and the collaboration, learning, and sharing experiences between the 3t team and bp were exceptional. The blended learning solution we developed ensured maximum learner engagement, a strong team dynamic and the creation of an unrivalled safety-first culture before mobilisation.”

Winners of the Offshore Safety Awards will be announced at an event on Thursday, 8th September, as part of the Step Change in Safety 25th Anniversary celebrations.
