CEO Bui Thanh Van said he was delighted to receive the BWM award on behalf of his dedicated team of employees. He added: "Recognition for hard work is always appreciated and we will continue in our efforts to provide a top-rated service to clients around the world. It's how we managed to build our reputation so quickly in such a competitive industry in the first place." A subsidiary of PetroVietnam Drilling and Well Services Corporation, PVD Training boasts three core business areas - Training and Certification, Manpower Solutions and Petroleum & Marine Technical Services. Their secret for survival in a sector where plummeting oil companies have caused so many companies to sink in recent years, is all mostly thanks to a dedicated diversification strategy. Top notch resources help too, of course. The Well Control Training Facility for which the company picked up the BWM award comprises a 100-square-meter and a 300-square-meter swimming pool for Offshore Safety Training, an open fire yard for Fire Fighting Training, a 1000 square metre technical workshop, Marine & Life Raft workshop and an IWCF Well Control Simulator. This is combined with relaxation rooms and saunas.
