About the course

This course is designed for key players and high net worth professionals, both technical and non-technical that are beginning or transferring from other specialized areas to be directly involved in planning, construction and operation of offshore oil and gas facility systems. This course showcases the basic activities and challenges of offshore oil and gas exploration drilling and production systems.

Participants will develop a basic understanding of offshore exploration and production system operations to accelerate learning for optimum application and productivity. The emerging technologies used for development of new offshore oil and gas fields are presented in this course.

Practical demonstrations with field support are provided to develop participants and give hands on experience needed for real life scenarios. This course includes the use of computers provided at additional cost for each participant.

Course Objectives

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

  • Acquit with offshore oil and gas terminology
