As the drilling industry works to reshape itself for a sustainable future, companies increasingly recognize the importance of ensuring workforce competency. However, competency won’t come about by simply focusing on compliance training. Instead, companies must look at how they can help to increase the skill sets of their employees, said Marcus Chew, CEO of Singapore-based Energy Drilling. Mr Chew was among several panelists at the Executive Plenary Session at the 2018 IADC/SPE Asia Pacific Drilling Technology Conference on 27 August in Bangkok. Watch Mr Chew’s interview with Linda Hsieh, DC Managing Editor, as he talks about taking training out to the rig site, how the industry can deal with the rig oversupply, and lessons learned from ultra-efficient drilling operations in the Gulf of Thailand.
