Dedicated to quality service
The Al-Shaheen field is currently the third largest offshore oil field in the world. Based in the Persian Gulf, it is able to produce 270,000 barrels of oil per day.
Having been formally discovered by Maersk Oil in 1992, the oil field was run by the company for 25 years. However, in 2016 the rights went out to tender and North Oil Company, a collaboration between Qatar Petroleum and Total, won the rights to the offshore field.
Once the tender had been won by North Oil Company, Kintec were brought in handle the transition and handover from one company to the next. With the new company needing to set up offices, transition data and mobilise the necessary manpower, we needed to start delivering as soon as possible.
With this project starting at the end of 2016, we had to quickly deliver 170 people in a brief 8-month period. This included much more than simply sourcing Oil & Gas talent as, once they had been recruited, we were in charge of flying them to the site, organising H2S and PPE Equipment training and ensuring they also received the correct orientations.
Alongside this, we helped those with families relocate and provided them with everything they needed to settle into Qatar. Our knowledge of the area and the project ensured every hire we brought in was equipped with everything they needed to deliver high-quality work.
The project was a huge success, for us and North Oil. As the key supplier for manpower across the entire project, throughout 2017 we mobilised 170 people at a time when the market was becoming increasingly tough.
Alongside the global mobilisation of experts, we also ensured that the infrastructure was kept in place on completion of the project by managing and retaining what grew to 180 people, from contractors to support operations.
Now, North Oil Company are looking to invest a further £3 billion into the oil field and our ongoing relationship with the client means we’re able to further support the development of the Al-Shaheen field.
