Air Energi will provide talent acquisition services for BP’s giant Rumaila and Kirkuk oil fields.

Air Energi, the global workforce solutions provider for the energy, process and infrastructure sectors, has been awarded its first major contract with BP Iraq. The five year agreement will see Air Energi deliver talent acquisition services to support BP Iraq’s operations in the Middle East.

The agreement includes the supply of expatriate talent to support Iraq’s giant Rumaila and Kirkuk oil fields. With estimated recoverable reserves of 20 billion barrels, Rumaila is the second largest oil field in the world and represented 40 per cent of Iraq’s total oil production in 2014.

Air Energi will supply personnel for the full project lifecycle, including exploration, appraisal, project execution, and production operations, as well as co-ordinating activity between BP’s head office in Sunbury and operational base in Iraq.

Air Energi has been active in Iraq for the last five years, and was selected by BP for its proven track record in the region, its in-depth understanding of local processes and procedures, and commitment to health and safety. This was underpinned by Air Energi’s global mobility capabilities, providing in-depth knowledge of the complex processes associated with mobilising an international workforce safely and compliantly.

“Air Energi’s local knowledge and expertise, combined with our proven global mobility capabilities and access to talent, means we are perfectly placed to support BP’s operations in Iraq,” says Andy Ryan, VP Middle East and Central Asia, Air Energi. “Iraq presents a significant growth opportunity for Air Energi. This contract award is an opportunity to gain further traction in the region, cementing our position as the trusted partner for global workforce solutions.”
