This is Petrofac’s fourth major win with an operator in the country, said the company. The contract enables the company to focus on technical and non-technical training to the Majnoon workforce, with the aim to enhance Iraqi capabilities.

PTS will also provide human resources, including project managers, HSE, technical and English language trainers, as well as administrators, with a focus on supporting the competency development of the national workforce.

PTS vice-president Karim Osseiran said, “We are delighted to have been chosen by Shell Iraq to support the development of the local workforce. This award reflects our commitment to Iraq, where we have been very successful with international oil companies and national oil companies in bringing the best of our operations from around the world and adapting them to meet local needs, facilitating local workforce development.”

Petrofac was first awarded a contract by Shell to deliver engineering, procurement and construction management at Majnoon in 2011 and now operates in four locations across the country on projects worth a total of more than US$1bn.
