Subsea Activities

Application to Oil & Gas Upstream Projects

Who should attend?

  • This course provides technical knowledge on Oil & Gas subsea production systems.
Public :
  • This course is designed for engineers and technicians whose activity is related to the design, construction and/or operation of Oil & Gas subsea production systems.

Level :Skilled

Prerequisite :
  • In order to be able to follow this training, trainees are asked to fulfill at least one of the criteria below:
  • either a proven experience in the design or the conception of pipelines of at least 1 year,
  • or to have a proven experience of deep offshore projects of at least 1 year,
  • or to be evolving towards a conception position or subsea pipeline design or deep offshore projects.

Course Content


      • Subsea components and field architecture.
      • Subsea construction and intervention.
      • Inspection, maintenance and repair.
      • Operation from production platforms.

      • Pipeline operation: main constraints.
      • Design of rigid pipelines and risers.
      • Flexible pipelines design.
      • Offshore pipeline construction.
      • Shore approach construction.
      • Trenching and protection.
      • Subsea tie-in methods.
      • Precommissioning and pigging.
      • Pipeline integrity.
      • Workshop.

Learning Objectives

  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • select the technology with the right criteria for the different equipment used for subsea production systems,
  • select through typical subsea architecture and in particular in deep offshore,
  • check installation techniques (with ROV, etc.),
  • manage main problems of flow assurance and prevention techniques.

Ways & Means

  • Lectures carry numerous examples from ongoing upstream projects.
  • Each step of the course is illustrated by numerous examples taken from actual Oil & Gas construction activities.
