Why Choose this Training Course?

For the successful operation of the FPSO it is of vital importance to understand the process from the wellhead through the topside process, storage and offload. Often putting together an operations team receives scarce publicity despite being one of the most important steps to a successful project. This 5-day training course will present the process from the wellhead through topside process, storage and offload.

The FPSO Operation and Maintenance training course will focus on the key technical challenges and risks associated the operation and maintenance of an FPSO. It will arm the participant with a wealth of knowledge to help them advance their project.

This training course will feature:

  • Operation and maintenance – Guidance and General Requirements
  • Environmental Influences affecting FPSO operation
  • Cargo and ballast tanks
  • Offloading operations
  • Control and safety systems
  • Safety in operation and maintenance
