Welcome to the Oil Gas Security training Course. Global energy and its demands are expected to rise by as much as 50% over the next decade. This with ever depleting oil and gas reserves will mean even more extensive exploration and production activities by the Oil and Gas industry.
A large proportion of this is expected to come from many parts of the undeveloped world, bringing more challenges to the operating companies and more importantly to the security of these operations.
Security provides Companies with the freedom to operate in a safe environment. It allows for more freedom of movement and productivity of its infrastructure and platforms, along with its exploration operations.
Due to the ever changing climate, world views and politics, the security of operations within the oil and gas industry have been become even more important and vast in its bid to keep up with the demands of the modern market.

Who Should Attend
This Oil Gas Security training course has been designed for security managers and Close Protection Operatives (CPO) and those interested in the securing of Oil & Gas Rigs. The course provides the SSM and security operator (CPO) on the ground some of the necessary planning considerations and information to conduct a variety of operations.
It is important to understand that every operation within the oil and gas industry will come with its own specific and detailed security requirements, and therefore this module has been designed to cover only the main areas of security considerations. These are very much generic, however can be and should be used whilst carrying out security work throughout the industry.
It cannot be underestimated the importance of the relationship between the security operators and the client. The balance of successful Security can only be achieved if the security provider has a comprehensive understanding of the client’s needs. This coupled with a good relationship will not only enhance the level and effectiveness of the security provided but in the productivity of the operation. This applies more than ever when providing security within the oil and gas industry, as others factors will play a much larger role in this environment. These can be and are not limited to the following:
• Environment hostile and geographical
• Local politics and previous conflict resentment
• Quality and experience of local work force
• Vetting of local security personnel employed to assist in security operations
• Religious and cultural differences
• Weather and terrain
• Logistical challenges
• Standard and effectiveness of security equipment provided.
SSM’s and Operators must ensure they are fully aware of these factors before deploying on operations. Having an understanding of these factors will assist them in their preparation and running of security operations and activities.
