Gazprom draws up training needs for arctic projects

Offshore staff

MURMANSK, Russia – A Gazprom delegation has visited the Murmansk Oblast to discuss support requirements for offshore projects in arctic regions.

One of the main subjects for discussion is Gazprom's plan to construct a training center in Murmansk, specialized in offshore fields prospecting, exploration, pre-development and operation, and subsea and cargo transportation of produced hydrocarbons.

This facility will likely be built on the southeast coast of Lake Sredneye.

The delegation also visited the projected locations of this and onshore infrastructure facilities near Teriberka for the Shtokman and condensate field development project in the Barents Sea.

Gazprom’s 2010–2013 personnel skills development program for its subsidiary companies stipulates that the training center should focus on: 
• Theoretical and practical preparation of personnel to work at offshore hydrocarbon fields, pre-development facilities, subsea production complexes, offshore processing platforms, offshore mobile drilling rigs, offshore gas trunklines, onshore LNG plants, hydrocarbons storage tank fleets, and facilities for hydrocarbons loading on tankers and LNG carriers 
• Retraining of professionals operating offshore field pre-development facilities 
• Research of methods to increase the effectiveness and reliability of offshore fields pre-development.
