The amalgamation of the Drilling Equipment Knowledge and experience of Fearnley Procter Group with the Operational know how and Well Control qualifications of Training & Development Pty Ltd will provide the oil & gas industry in Australia with a rounded range of personnel development options to help prevent costly and avoidable Non-Productive Time.

Kevin Fearnley, FPG CEO said “It has always been my objective to expand our services to the Oil & Gas Industry with regards to Team Development and Technical Instruction. These programmes are designed to create a platform of learning that will either help drilling teams or provide service companies with the specialist understanding they need. Working with T&D will provide us with the breadth of courses to really help the industry. With T&D having their operational base in Perth Australia alongside Fearnley Procter Australia operational entity, also based in Perth, this will be a unique offering to the Australian market for needed training courses.

Training & Development Pty Ltd provide bespoke and industry recognised technical and non-technical training. 

Jeanne Boles, T&D Technical Director – “This JV has provided an opportunity for us to combine our strengths to deliver world class trainers, material and current solutions to our clients, as and when they need them”.

Fearnley Procter who for over 25 years have provided NPT prevention training courses such as Drillstring Failure and Stuck Pipe Prevention and Management see a considerable benefit in this joint venture with their global coverage.

The continued and growing incidence of Non-productive Time, either through operational error or equipment failure, is causing a serious problem for operators; their drilling contractors; the equipment supplier and service companies.

Fearnley Procter Group and Training & Development Pty will bring courses that are relevant to all end users, whatever position in the drilling cycle, and through these reduce the impact that avoidable Non-Productive Time has on the performance demands of today’s Oil & Gas marketplace.
