3t Energy Group has acquired Petrofac’s UK training centres for an undisclosed sum.
The purchase includes Petrofac’s survival and marine, health and safety, fire and major emergency management capability facilities in Scotland.
3t Energy will now become a supplier to Petrofac for its in-person UK training requirements, which consolidates it as the UK’s largest provider of energy training services.
The group is backed by private equity firm Blue Water Energy, which has backed what is 3t Energy’s fourth acquisition in three years.
It comprises learning technology and workforce development solutions business 3t Transform, tech-enabled renewable and industrial training firms Survivex and AIS, and software-based drilling simulation specialist Drilling Systems.
Mark Corrigan, chairman of 3t Energy, stated: “This is a strategic acquisition for 3t Energy which will have a transformational impact on the group.
“The deal expands our portfolio of services and our training now reaches most parts of the energy eco-system, including the fast-growing renewables sector.
“As we all hope the world returns to some normality after a tumultuous 2020, we believe there will be a huge opportunity for us to grow our business further as companies and individuals focus on up-skilling and core competencies to meet the challenges of the post pandemic economy.”
The group counts the likes of BP, Shell, Total, Wood, Saudi Aramco, Bilfinger and Robert Gordon University amongst its clients.
Across its businesses, 3t Energy has offices in Europe, North America, China and the Middle East.
