The PetroSkills Alliance

The PetroSkills Alliance was founded in 2001 by Shell, BP and OGCI, to provide “important but not unique” competency based training. Since then it has evolved into an industry-driven, industry-approved program that spans the industry. Today, with dozens of members representing all facets of the global oil and gas industry, the PetroSkills Alliance is focused on meeting the challenges of workforce development and a rapidly changing hydrocarbon resource base. As the oil and gas Industry’s partner, our mission is to deliver consistent, high quality, learning and development training and programs to build competent petroleum professionals.

PetroSkills is now part of The Competency Alliance, which is building on the methodology we used to become the Oil & Gas industry’s leading alliance and expanding it to the Net Zero and Renewable sectors.
