Case Studies

Short Case Studies

One of Canada’s largest integrated energy companies with operations in Western and Atlantic Canada, Greenland, United States, China and Indonesia, following the establishment of a branch office in Calgary in 2005, awarded Petroplan an exclusive outsourcing contract in January 2007 to support the personnel requirements associated with its extensive portfolio of upstream, midstream and downstream projects within the domestic and international business units. Our processes included candidate identification, through to onboarding, which encompasses pre-screening, interviewing and qualification and reference checking.  Petroplan’s successful working relationship with Husky is due to our ability to provide innovative solutions to common industry problems, including attraction and retention of personnel

Petroplan began working with an international service provider to the oil and gas production and processing in the North Sea in 2005 – the year our office in Aberdeen opened. We have since supported many of the company’s projects globally, including assignments in the North Sea, Middle East, Asia and various European locations.

We have a strong working relationship with this North Sea employer and have provided them with contract recruitment and management services, predominantly focussing on engineering, construction, commissioning, project services and operations/maintenance. Petroplan’s expertise in topsides has underpinned our relationship and we look forward to building on this relationship in the future.

One of the World’s leading Oil and Energy companies. Since Petroplan began operating in 1976, we have been working closely with them throughout the world, supporting their onshore, offshore and petrochemical projects.  Our relationship with this major operator has steadily grown throughout this time and during 2002, in order to support their Caspian Region projects, we took the decision to establish a registered office and local team in Baku.  As as a consequence, Petroplan supplied engineering personnel to their assets for the Azeri, Chirag and Gunalshi field developments, the Shah Deniz gas field development and the Azerbaijan, Georgia, Turkey (AGT) export pipeline projects.  During 2007, Petroplan became a first tier supplier to the organisation in North America, working with the GoM & NAG business units providing upstream personnel with on and offshore expertise. Petroplan started providing contract personnel to projects in Iraq during 2009.  Staff supplied by Petroplan to their Iraqi site and project offices in the UK and UAE has steadily increased since we began working with the company  In 2009, our global relationship developed further and we were awarded global preferred supplier status.  Via our local network of offices, we have supported  project locations throughout Algeria, Australia, Azerbaijan, Egypt, Europe (including the North Sea), Georgia, India, Iraq, Jordan, Korea, Libya, Monaco, Oman, Singapore, Sharjah, and Turkey and across the US. Petroplan attends regular Agency Forum meetings conducted by this organisation which provides  a platform for sharing information concerning a number of subjects including retention of staff, industrial relations management, security briefings, emergency response planning, managing the employment of nationals, community relations and other community projects.

Petroplan has been working with this international energy company with operations in 23 countries since 1985 supplying skilled contract personnel to their UK North Sea and international projects.
During 2007, Petroplan identified and placed a fifty five man start-up and operations team for an onshore desert-based project for which we continued to support for many years. This success was attributed to the detailed understanding of the needs of this employer which Petroplan built up over decades of experience. Contractors also benefited from this close liaison, allowing a rapid and smooth programme to be fulfilled.
Since the project’s commencement, we provided over 200 contract staff for Exploration, FEED, EPC, Operations and Training Services.

Petroplan assisted an Australian based global mining, oil and gas company with a management office in London, UK with their contract and permanent staffing requirements since 1996.  The majority of their contract staff working on the Ohanet and Rod projects in Algeria were engaged via Petroplan.   We also provided technical staff to their corporate offices in Liverpool Bay.

Petroplan began working with Africa’s leading independent oil company in 2005. The company has a strong presence in Africa which provides opportunities to open up new basins and establish new oil producing countries such as Ghana and Uganda. Petroplan placed contract personnel, throughout their sites in the UK, Ghana, Uganda, Kenya and Equatorial Guinea.  The number of Petroplan personnel working for steadily increased over the past few years, in line with the company’s rapid expansion.
