3t Energy Group expands in China


3t Energy Group is expanding its presence in China after winning several new contracts for its training and technology solutions with leading state-owned energy companies in the territory.

As part of the expansion, 3t Energy Group will move to larger premises within Tianjin’s Economic-Technological Development Area (TEDA) – the heart of the Chinese oil and gas industry.

This additional space will allow 3t to create a state-of-the-art technology suite for demonstrations of the Group’s latest innovations in training technology such as virtual and augmented reality training, training management software, simulators and mobile apps.

As well as a move to larger, improved premises, 3t Energy Group is recruiting an additional five personnel to support customers in the region and to build further new relationships across China.

Since establishing its China base in 2018, 3t Energy Group has been working with some of the country’s largest oil and gas companies to drive continuous improvement and greater efficiencies. It recently won a clutch of new training contracts for its simulators and training and competency management software systems, as well as helping companies adopt internationally recognised training standards and accreditations.

3t Energy Group combines the expertise of advanced simulator developer and manufacturer, Drilling Systems with leading energy sector training provider, AIS Survivex, and software and training technology expert, 3t Transform.

Paul Attrill, Vice President of China and MENA regions at 3t Energy Group, said: “Continued growth and new contract wins with leading state-owned enterprises such as CNOOC and COSL have bolstered confidence in China as a key region for 3t Energy Group.

“Our move to new offices and our newly expanded team will help strengthen our position in China and enable us to continue supporting leading organisations with the development of workforce training, skills and competence to internationally recognised standards utilising the latest technology.

“Our technology suite, in particular, will allow proper in-person demonstrations of some of our most cutting-edge technologies such as simulators, e-learning, virtual reality and integrated software, which together with traditional training methods, enhance the skills, knowledge and performance of energy sector personnel.”
