New Zealand Waters for Shell

Contego Training and Crewing have assisted The Company in meeting the stringent compliance requirements of operating a rig in New Zealand Waters for Shell. The Company had to demonstrate an alignment between the International qualifications of their crew against the local qualification requirements when working in NZ. The flexibility of Contego allowed the training matrix to be set up in such a way that it identified specific client or country training requirements that were more stringent than their own company requirements. This allowed The Company to preempt what training was required well before the rig arrived.

The crewing module allowed both HR in Singapore and New Plymouth to access the same data so that training could be booked and persons notified at the same time.
