This course will provide a fundamental and advanced understanding of the technology and work processes used for the design and construction of all types of offshore systems asset development, surveillance and management. The content includes the full range of water depths from shallow water to ultra deepwater and will also address life-cycle considerations in all phases of offshore field development and operation. All major components required for offshore developments such as fixed and floating platforms, drilling rigs, work over equipment, pipelines, risers, process and utilities and construction equipment are discussed. Emphasis is placed on the multi-discipline team approach needed to manage the myriad interfaces of offshore facility design, construction and operations. Individual and group exercises are used throughout the course. A “red thread” project exercise is included to develop field architecture recommendations, basic design and high level project execution plans for an offshore development. The course instructors are experienced offshore managers.

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, the delegates will be able to:

  • Identify the key facilities parameters that must be evaluated for field development
  • Describe the types and capabilities of offshore well construction, pipeline, riser and production (surface and subsea) facilities needed for all water depths, from shallow to ultra deepwater
  • Recognize the best applications and characteristics of each type of offshore fixed and floating structure
  • Account for the affects of the ocean environment on facilities design, construction and operations
  • Identify the impact space, loads and forces have on the structural design and global performance of offshore structures and how they influence their cost
  • Describe the impact topside facilities (drilling, well servicing, processing and utilities) affect the structural design and how the topside design process is done
  • Recognize and manage key design and operational interfaces between the major components of offshore facilities systems
  • Understand and apply the key design, construction and installation issues associated with fixed and floating platforms to your work
