About the course

This course provides learners with the knowledge of the equipment used, market drivers and issues affecting subsea production systems. It is ideal for those who are unfamiliar with subsea but require an overall understanding of this area.

This course covers subsea field development, system configurations, subsea trees, control systems, umbilicals and manifolds. Recent developments in subsea pumping and compression will be discussed here, while diver and diverless inspection and intervention will also be covered in this course.

Explaining a variety of pipe-lay and pipeline protection methods for rigid and flexible risers, this course will develop your ability and confidence to select the most suitable method for different scenarios. Associated activities including surveying, diving and pre-commissioning are discussed, as well as the latest methods for decommissioning pipelines. This course also covers the construction process for risers, spools, stalk-ons, pipeline end manifolds (PLEMs) and terminations (PLETs) as well as alternative installation methods such as mechanical connectors.
