Why Choose this Training Course?

This interactive, applications-driven 5-day training course offers a professional approach providing access to decision making support tools in asset management-operations decision making. It will show how the use of big data analytics can support strategic initiatives; to inform on asset management data information; and to direct subsea & marine operational decision making.

This PetroKnowledge training course is aimed at addressing a global industry “age gap” by providing a link to a knowledge management based pool of highly experienced professionals and leaders across the Offshore & Marine Subsea Operational and Technology sectors.

The industry is going through a period of a combination of tightening international asset maintenance standards, and the cyclic challenges presented by a global industry where oil and gas price volatility is pushing down operating entities and contractor-service providers profit margins, and having to deal with issues associated with ageing assets are forcing oil and gas operators to assess their existing strategies and develop something more robust such that one maximises the return on investment (ROI) budget levels.

Something that inevitable falls out of these periodic downturns is experienced personnel leave the industry, thus providing a significant gap in the available skills, and management leadership.

Alongside this, asset integrity has become far wider and more diverse; with modern day asset integrity managers becoming responsible for a wider remit of roles whilst still being expected to fulfill their traditional activities.

So this Oil & Gas Management training course will better prepare you as an aspiring subsea or marine operations engineer for both the interesting and challenging journey and career of becoming the Lead Operations owner operator engineer or possibly a Asset Manager; These roles will involve more subsea infrastructure installations by way of long subsea tie-backs to shore or subsea –marine offshore facilities involving a Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) or possibly a Floating Liquefied Natural Gas (FLNG) or Floating Re-Gasification Storage Unit (FSRU) facilities in the development and extraction of numerous stranded Oil & Gas gas fields by re-deployable mobile assets.
