Petrofac Successfully Implements SkillsVX Software For Valaris


Petrofac, a leading international service provider to the energy industry, has successfully implemented its SkillsVX learning and competency software for offshore drilling services provider, Valaris, supporting its 7,000 employees globally to manage their learning and competency needs.

The implementation involved integrating data from Valaris’ two legacy organizations, which had deployed two different systems prior to their merger in 2019. Petrofac merged the companies’ training and competency matrices to provide a single platform to manage all of Valaris’ training and competency data consistently across all of its rigs.

SkillsVX is an integrated eLearning, competency and training management software solution. The system maps and manages workforce competency for over 40 companies worldwide and has been designed to meet the specific challenges of safety critical industries. Its six modules offer an efficient, reliable and automated route to mapping, managing and tracking workforce capabilities across multiple projects and locations.

Eliot Doyle, senior manager - training and competency, Valaris, said, “Bringing our training, competency and learning management systems together into one platform across our operations has significantly improved efficiencies as well as facilitated compliance.”

Tiemen Van der Linden, operations manager, Petrofac, added, “We are pleased to have demonstrated our skill and depth of knowledge in support of Valaris’ training and competency needs. We have received positive feedback since it went live.”

SkillsVX leverages the strength of Petrofac’s broader operations, maintenance, engineering and training experience to deliver effective training and competency management for the oil and gas industry.
