SADA: 3t’s Middle East Team Visit Saudi Campus

As part of our collaboration with the Saudi Arabian Drilling Academy (SADA), we provide ongoing expertise and insight to support the premier technical and academic institution’s goals of redefining training across the region.

From its Abqaiq-based campus, SADA – an endeavour between Saudi Aramco and Vocational Training Corporation (TVTC) – fosters a fully realised and supportive training environment for the next generation of drilling professionals.

Through state-of-the-art facilities and a forward-thinking approach to get the best out of delegates and unlock their workforce potential, the SADA team has developed an impressive track record of student success stories.

Examining how we can continue driving excellence in the energy industry through our partnership with SADA, some of our global Senior Leadership Team visited the cutting-edge Saudi facilities.

Ian Hunt, Region VP – MENA, was joined by 3t Drilling Systems’ COO, Clive Battisby, and Business Development Manager – MENA, Andreas Smith, for a tour of the campus and in-depth conversation with SADA’s experts – including Managing Director Faisal Al-Daihani.

Alongside discussing our partnership, the visit provided the chance to explore new ways that SADA can utilise the advanced 3t Drilling Systems’ simulators that SADA has on-site, creating the best training environment possible for delegates.

Welcoming the opportunity to meet with the SADA team, Ian commented: “Visiting the SADA campus provided the opportunity to reflect on the success of our relationship and the positive difference it has made to next-gen drilling professionals who have excelled through the Abqaiq campus. To guarantee energy security for generations to come, industry collaboration is the best way forward. By working alongside SADA’s expert team, we can ensure they have the technology in place to deliver immersive training experiences. We can’t wait to see what comes next in this ongoing partnership.”
