E-781 - Subsea Production Systems

5 days PL/SPSGB
  • Engineers and technicians involved in the design, construction or operation of oil and gas subsea production systems
  • To provide an in-depth technical knowledge of oil and gas subsea production systems
Learning Objectives
  • To select the technology with the right criteria for the different equipment used for subsea production systems
  • To select through typical subsea architecture and in particular in deep offshore
  • To check installation techniques (with ROV, etc.)
  • To deal with the main problems of flow assurance, and prevention techniques
Ways and means
  • Lectures carry numerous examples from ongoing projects
  • Trainers are specialized engineers, presently involved in deep-offshore projects
This module is part of the course E-780 Training E-780 may be validated, on request, as such when all modules have been done
