Why Choose this Training Course?

Why Choose this Training Course?

This Offshore Structure Design, Construction & Maintenance training course will review the fundamentals behind all types of fixed offshore structures and, in the case of fixed platforms, will cover applications of these principles. The overall objective is to provide participants with an understanding of the design, construction and risk based maintenance for offshore platforms, specifically, the theory and process of such design and the use of current applicable engineering methods in the design of fixed offshore platforms.

This training course will feature:

  • Case studies on petroleum industry
  • Codes and standards with technical practice
  • The new trend of integrity management system
  • The engineering and pitfalls in construction
  • The pushover structure analysis technique
  • ROV under water inspection and CP system design
