Course Overview

There are several fields and components of varying importance in the oil and gas industry. Concerning this course, offshore engineering is of prime importance. It is the aspect of engineering concerned with the design and construction of structures to be stationed in the ocean. Its project site is on the ocean, and structures might be near or farther from the coast.

What is a riser in petroleum engineering?

One of the major components in offshore engineering is the deepwater drilling riser. The deepwater drilling riser acts as a conduit between an offshore well and a drilling unit. This complex procedure is carried out by engineers who are specialists in this field. Therefore, there is a need for a proper understanding of the state of the system, its design, and the probable risks associated with it.

On the other hand, flowline engineering is a branch of engineering discipline responsible for designing the fraction of steel pipe directing the produced fluids from a wellhead, through a production chamber as necessary, to a fluid separator of a surface facility.

What does a subsea engineer do?

This Zoe Talent training course is very detailed. It will explore all stages of the flow line life cycle and deepwater drilling. By attending this course, you will also understand the role of a subsea engineer. As a result, you will have an expansive knowledge of the deepwater drilling and flowline industry.

Course Objectives

The crucial objective of this course is to empower experts to:

  • Enlighten technical and non-technical staff on the procedures in deepwater drilling and flowline engineering
  • Maximise the profit of the company by enhancing the knowledge of its workers about the design, installation, inspection, and repair of flowlines
  • Learn about flowline maintenance and integrity management
  • Understand how flowlines are designed and the challenges of flowline installation
  • Understand key concepts relating to flowline engineering like flowline manifold, flowline Routing and Flowline connector
  • Learn about flowline integrity management
  • Learn how flowlines and systems are connected to floating facilities

Training Methodology

Zoe Training Solutions is a platform that provides training courses across diverse subjects. With the combined efforts of experts, professionals in a particular field, comprehensive, well-detailed and relatable training is carried out. The various strategies employed to impact knowledge to trainees include video presentations, seminars, quizzes, snap test assessment, group work, constant communication between professionals undertaking the training and the trainees.

Organisational Benefits

This course in question is specifically modelled for the oil and gas industry. Thus, organisations in the oil and gas industry that engage in this course seek to gain the following:

  • Equip personnel on the fundamentals in engaging in offshore engineering, thus ensuring safe practices and eliminating or reducing organisational losses
  • Enables the organisation to carry out due diligence and proper risk assessment before undertaking the offshore processes
  • Collective development of skillset necessary to engage in the process with the constant training of personnel of the organisation, thus increasing the efficiency of the organisation
  • Improving the service life of its flowline projects
  • Effectively manage the maintenance and operations expense of flowline projects
  • Ensure a reduction in the organisation’s environmental and business hazards whilst engaging in the process of deep drilling
  • Development of highly technical capabilities and knowledge in the sphere of subsea umbilical risers & flowline engineering

Personal Benefits

Participants who undertake this course wholly are assured certain benefits, which are:

  • A comprehensive understanding of the complex nature of design and operation of the deepwater drilling riser
  • Improved and comprehensive know-how as regards the various methods of riser analysis that exists
  • Awareness of the various health hazards, environmental pollution, accidents, as well as the overall risk that deepwater drilling encompasses, thus, ingraining in the trainees’ safe practices as well as the zeal to carry out due diligence before engaging in the deepwater drilling
  • broadened scope and horizon of understanding of the various practices and terminologies about the deepwater drilling riser
  • A practical perspective to the process of undertaking drilling process offshore with the aid of deepwater drilling riser
  • Thorough comprehension and effective management of the possible challenges or obstacles during their organisations’ development of flowline projects
