Future 50 List
Kevin Keable
Oilennium

The next year will see the services offered by Oilennium reach much further afield as the firm's strategy changes significantly.

The business has continued to produce online training courses in the arenas of technical, health and safety, legal, risk management and soft skills, which offshore workers can complete on their laptops.

The courses use animations, video clips images and audio, and can be accessed in different languages.

The business has also developed its suite of standard off–the–shelf courses and an online learning management system.

But until 2011, explained founder Kevin Keable, all of their work was awarded based on recommendation.

'This was fantastic, but needed changing if we were to continue to grow,' he said.

'So we hired a representative in Houston and are now working on opening a new office and hiring staff in Aberdeen in early 2012.

'We also hope to have representation in the Middle East and Australia by the end of 2012.'

There has also been interest from outside the standard customer base of the oil and gas industry, with the business about to enter the renewables, education, maritime and aerospace industries.

The company has been reshaped, said Mr Keable, with increased investment, changes in resourcing, the introduction of an internal quality, leadership and management training programme and the hiring of an intake of five graduate trainees in anticipation of expansion.
