Why Choose this Training Course?

 “Simultaneous operations” or SIMOPS often occur when multiple work activities and/or a large multi-disciplinary workforce is working at a single location and in close proximity, or whenever construction or major maintenance work is being done within a "live" process area of an existing facility. The risks associated with such simultaneous marine operations can be great and potentially dangerous. Therefore, all coordination of offshore operations must be addressed between the vessels and personnel involved for the safety of all personnel and assets. In such cases, it is critical that all relevant and involved parties come together in order to develop an appropriate hazard and risk management plan. 

The objective of this PetroKnowledge training course is to give the participants an overview of parallel activities at the same location and at the same time that are considered “simultaneous operations”. By learning to identify possible SIMOPS situations of the project early on in the project development phase, the training course participants will be able to distinguish those possible situations which may cause costly delays, or worse, cause serious harm or injury to the construction workforce and offshore operations personnel.
