2020 Year in Review

As this year comes to a close, we would like to take a moment to reflect on 2020, a year full of difficulties for our industry and the world.

In an effort to support our fellow technical professional, PetroSkills rolled out the Tech Tuesday initiative, presenting a free weekly webinar on various industry topics. We have seen creative solutions as clients requested virtual instead of face-to-face training and strengthened lines of communication. At PetroSkills, the Simulation Solutions product line has seen higher demand as the software follows COVID-19 safety precautions and is highly relevant to today’s industry.
