Key Learning Objectives

  • Overview of system engineering – defining field developments and subsea hardware
  • Appreciate subsea architecture options, field lay-outs and system design
  • Discover flow assurance – hydraulic system analysis, issues and drivers
  • Understand subsea well operations – well heads and Xmas trees
  • Comprehend subsea production control systems and chemical injection
  • Review templates, manifolds and associated hardware
  • Understand umbilical functionality, manufacture and installation
  • Overview infield flowlines and export pipelines
  • Analyse production riser systems for floaters and fixed platforms
  • Learn about subsea Inspection, Maintenance and Repair (IMR)
  • Appreciate reliability, availability and life expectancy
  • Review new technologies for future subsea production systems

About the Course

This intensive, introductory course provides a balanced overview of subsea systems based on more than 20 years of first hand project experience in shallow and deep water fields around the world, from concept evaluation to first production.

It is designed for project managers and project engineers, with or without experience of the subsea sector and is particularly suitable for cost, planning, offshore installation and offshore operation engineers.

The objective of the course is to examine the engineering behind the design and operation of subsea production systems including subsea Xmas tree & subsea production controls hardware, manifolds, umbilicals and an overview of key flowline and pipeline design issues.

All sessions (up-dated on a regular basis) are presented with text, figures and DVDs with videos and detailed animations, used to illustrate many key points of subsea technologies
