A Loddon-based firm bought out by Scottish-based multinational Petrofac is expanding its UK and USA offices as demand for its services continues to fuel dramatic growth.

Oilennium, a former EDP Future 50 firm, has increased staff numbers to 44 in both countries since the start of the year – a 30pc increase.

The firm, which delivers eLearning training modules for the oil and gas industry, has expanded its Norfolk headquarters to accommodate its growing numbers and has also moved in to larger premises in Houston.

It said the expansion is in response to an increase in demand for its online training systems – such as the ConTrainer, Learning Management System, and simulators – which has tripled since 2012, as well as its drive to secure new business.

Meanwhile the firm has also been selected to supply a range of online eLearning modules to the American Petroleum Institute (API) for its training portal API University (API-U).

Samantha O’Hara, general manager of Oilennium, said: “With the addition of experienced, creative staff, and a major expansion of our global headquarters, we have considerably enhanced our ability to serve our clients around the world.

“When coupled with the success of the customised eLearning programmes that we produce for clients that provide an efficient, cost-effective method of training employees regardless of their location, our position in the global marketplace grows stronger every day.”

Kevin Keable, managing director of Oilennium, added: “The API has a reputation for providing training services of the highest standard. Therefore, having the eLearning modules featured as part of the API-U eLearning catalogue is a real testament to the quality and effectiveness of the training that our modules deliver. It also represents a considerable step forward for Oilennium as we integrate our offering further into the global marketplace.”

A global boom in the use of smart meters is set to fuel the growth of a pioneering East Anglian engineering company after it struck a major production deal with a leading Indian manufacturer.

I’ve seen and heard quite a lot over the years, so it takes quite a bit to shock me.
