Seagull Oil & Gas managing director Morten Aasen said his company aims to offer the most comprehensive training library for the oil and gas industry, and BWO Offshore was an ideal partner for it.

"To support our ambition we have acquired all intellectual rights of the educational material developed by Norwegian Petroleum Academy," he said.

"This is the official educational material used by technical colleges in Norway.

"We are building a comprehensive e-learning library based on the educational material, and by partnering with industry leaders like BW Offshore we aim to offer exactly what the industry needs."

BW Offshore senior vice president Oceanic Fleet Dagfinn Hatleskog said his company has worked with Seagull for many years on the maritime part of our operations, and was happy to see that Seagull now also focuses on production and process related topics.

"Seagull and BW Offshore share the idea that training is most effective offshore using real equipment, where the crews are already on duty," he said.

Oslo Stock Exchange-listed BW Offshore provides floating production services to the oil and gas industry, and is the world's second largest contractor with a fleet of 14 FPSOs and one FSO, represented in all major oil regions world-wide, with two additional two FPSOs.

Seagull Oil & Gas provides "off the shelf" training solutions and competence management solutions for the oil and gas industry.

It is part of the Seagull group, a leading provider of computer-based training systems for seafarers worldwide that offers a comprehensive library of e-learning and on board courses for regulatory compliance and improved seafarer knowledge.

Seagull is headquartered in Horten, Norway, and has offices in Tokyo, Singapore, Greece, Cyprus, Germany and UK.
