Why Choose this Training Course?

This 5 Day PetroKnowledge training course will review in detail the fabrication and construction of fixed offshore structures fixed platforms from A to Z. It will cover all the stages of fabrication from the beginning until the load out and sail away of the structure. The overall objective is to provide participants with deep understanding of the construction of fixed offshore platforms, specifically, the planning, process, fabrication engineering, different methods and concepts of fabrication, different methods of load out, fabrication of small and large jackets and topsides and weighing process and procedures.

This training course will highlight:

  • Fabrication Engineering
  • Jacket Fabrication
  • Topside Fabrication
  • Planning
  • Load out and Sail away

What are the Goals?

By the end of this intensive PetroKnowledge training course, participants will learn to:

  • Understand in depth the fabrication of fixed offshore structure
  • Develop high skills about fabrication methods
  • Execute the fabrication efficiently
  • Learn different methods of load out
  • Understand the importance of engineering and planning in delivering projects

Who is this Training Course for?

This PetroKnowledge training course is suitable to a wide range of professionals who are interested in learning about offshore structure construction but will greatly benefit: 

  • Structural Engineers
  • Construction Engineers
  • Project Engineers
