Kevin Walker, Vantage POB product manager at Collabro, said: “Maersk Oil Qatar has selected Vantage POB to provide comprehensive personnel logistics management across all assets in the vast Al Shaheen oil field. This is our first major client in the Middle East and is attracting great interest from other companies situated within the Persian Gulf.
Positively, we are seeing an increased number of global oil and gas operators underlining their commitment to efficient health, safety and personnel logistics management. The fact that Vantage POB has been tried and tested in the UKCS, for the past 10 years, gives the product a lot of global credibility.
