Why Choose this Training Course?

Why Choose this Training Course?

If your company operates offshore assets and in particular Offshore Marine Terminals, Fixed Platform infrastructures with subsea pipelines, Floating Production Storage & Offloading (FPSO’s) and/or is entering into FSRU/FLNG assets with LNG Gas carriers and/or Oil tankers berthing at single buoy mooring terminals, then this PetroKnowledge training course is for you.

This interactive, applications-driven 5-day training course is focused on the key design, operability and life cycle asset integrity management considerations for constructing, operating an Offshore Asset such as a Marine Oil or Gas Terminal. This PetroKnowledge training course additionally addresses ageing asset infrastructure, life extension modeling with safety and regulatory guidance.

This training course will highlight:

  • Key design & construction guidelines for building & operating an offshore marine asset
  • How to manage ageing infrastructure, structural integrity monitoring, asset insurance, marine warranty surveillance Life cycle risk management
  • Use of latest technologies in real-time data management, condition performance monitoring technologies
  • Focusing on design life cycle management, maintaining a stable asset risk profile with good reliability, production availability, Uptime performance as per ISO 20815 criteria
  • Managing Asset OPEX Budgets, Knowledge Management tools and skills set transfer to a multi-disciplined, competent work force

What are the Goals?

What are the Goals?

By the end of this training course, participants will be able to:

  • Gain a better understanding and appreciation of the various International Asset Regulatory Guidelines and manage variances in environmental conditions, codes and standards
  • Interpret meaningfully and critically, project and asset information to assist in each of the key stages
  • Obtain a practical approach to understanding the requirements to obtain a DNV and/or other Independent 3rd Party Design Verification Certificate such as those issued by ABS and or Bureau Veritas or Lloyds Register Integrity Management
  • Learn the regulatory requirements and integrated competence matrices as stipulated by SIGTTO for LNG-LPG assets and risk management
  • Plan, Act and Do things in a timely manner to maintain your assets integrity in a fitness for purpose, operating condition

Who is this Training Course for?

Who is this Training Course for?

This training course is suitable to a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit:

  • Asset Engineers, Marine Engineers
  • Marine Operations & Field personnel
  • Professionals in Marine facility and Management Support Roles
  • Marine Operations Superintendents
  • Those who seek to derive greater understanding of Design and Life Cycle Asset Management of Offshore Marine Terminals
  • HSE Personnel subject matter experts (SME) for operational aspects of “ship to ship” transfer of LNG, in support of both European (EE) and worldwide terminal development projects, market access, and commercial efforts

How will this Training Course be Presented?

How will this Training Course be Presented?

Participants to this training course shall receive a thorough training on the subjects covered by the outline with the Tutor utilising a variety of proven adult learning teaching and facilitation techniques. Training methodology includes:

  • A variety of proven adult learning techniques shall be used to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension and retention of the information presented
  • The daily workshops will be highly interactive and participative. This involves regular discussion of applications with the course instructor, as well as hands-on exposure to latest techniques using some supportive project and operational site video presentations

Delegates are strongly encouraged to bring operational experiences gained from their own work into the course workshops. This adds greater relevancy to the content. Emphasis is also placed on the periodic changes of International regulations and the effectiveness of the “management of change” procedures.
