Petrofac, a FTSE100 company, is a global leader in oilfield services. From seven operations centres, servicing 28 countries, it employs 18,200 people of 80 different nationalities.

Petrofac contacted ATP Instone to ask for help evacuating approximately 300 of their staff from Algeria because of the security risk posed by the terrorist attack on the Amenas Gas Plant in mid-January 2013.

The situation:

Following Petrofac’s call, ATPI Griffinstone learnt that their partner BP had chartered three planes to airlift the Petrofac workers and their own staff back to safety. The flights were expected to arrive at Gatwick that evening (few other details were known at this stage). ATPI Griffinstone’s role would be to provide on-site support and arrange onward transportation for the employees to their home nation as quickly as possible.
