Subsea Systems Design Installation and Integration Management

 Achieve an Overall Understanding of Subsea Systems Design, Construction, Installation and Operation


Subsea systems are integral in fitting all the elements of the subsea puzzle together. This Subsea Design and Installations workshop will examine a broad range of technologies relating to offshore oil and gas developments. We will take a close look at typical design considerations, from discovery to commissioning, and get a detailed understanding of the vital role that each element of the system plays.

During the workshop we will examine how a typical subsea field develops over the course of time and look at alternative methods to exploit the same resources. Through various case studies we will explore the driving factors which mold the multitude of layouts we see today. We will also examine closely all of the various structures that make up the subsea equipment, from Xmas Trees to Manifolds, Flowline Risers, to Umbilical Terminations, and get a good understanding processes which take place subsea. In addition, we will get a good understanding of the benefits, and limitations of subsea processing.

Delegates will have full understanding of the industry terminology, learn about market drivers and discuss issues affecting subsea production
