Agility opens training centre in Iraq

October 18 - Agility, the global logistics provider, has opened a training facility at the Rumaila Energy Park in southern Iraq, in partnership with Strategic Analytics Team (SAT), to offer training courses for the local workforce in the oil and gas indus

The training will cover a wide variety of topics, including health and safety, lifting and hoisting, defensive driving and logistics solutions. With SAT's expertise in the field of operational logistics, courses will meet international oil and gas industry standards and focus on developing accredited local content, while enhancing the capabilities of Iraq-based contractors, says Agility.

 The Rumaila Energy Park is a one million sq m, fully serviced industrial park developed by Agility Real Estate to provide a one-stop-shop for companies operating in southern Iraq. The park includes warehouse facilities, workshops, laydown yards and offices. It is strategically close to the region's major oil and gas subcontractors.

"The training facility is part of Agility's ongoing commitment to building Iraq's infrastructure and human capital. We are strongly committed to building local capacity in our areas of operations, and this new centre is part of this strategy," says Colin Hindley, ceo, Agility Iraq.
