Why Choose this Training Course?

The Oil and Gas industry plays a critical role in driving the global economy.  With the depletion of many onshore and offshore shallow-water reserves, the exploration and production of oil and gas in deep water started to increase significantly. It is expected that most of the future offshore explorations will be conducted in the deep and ultra-deep waters. Subsea engineering has significantly evolved in recent years. However, Subsea industry faces many challenges related to cost, operation and maintenance.

As an offshore or subsea engineer or manager, it is of paramount importance to have a clear understanding of the subsea industry including subsea technologies, management, design, operation and maintenance.

This 10-day PetroKnowledge training course for subsea engineering has been designed to cover subsea equipment, technology, systems, processes and topside interface such as Floating, Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) and Floating Liquified Natural Gas (FLNG).

This PetroKnowledge training course will give you the international insight of the offshore subsea industry, providing exceptional grounding in business acumen; and equipped with this knowledge show you how best to identify, develop and retain your talent in order to achieve competitive advantage, as well as ensure sustainable career growth.   This is essential development for those who need to develop their offshore subsea and marine design, operational and managerial skills further.

This PetroKnowledge training course will highlight:

  • Providing a wide overview of how the Offshore Subsea and Marine Technology sector is evolving
  • Different subsea equipment, systems and technologies
  • Discussion of subsea project management and multi-disciplined roles and responsibilities
  • Developing your knowledge of subsea system engineering
  • Subsea equipment installation
  • Subsea processing
  • Subsea pipeline design, installation and repair techniques
  • Discussions on the latest subsea inspection technologies, operation and maintenance
  • Subsea Architecture and Topside interface such as FPSO and FLNG
  • Operation and maintenance of FPSO and FLNG


This PetroKnowledge training course is split into two modules:

MODULE I - Subsea Equipment and Technology for Oil & Gas Production

MODULE II - Subsea Systems, Processes and Topside Interface for Oil & Gas Production

Each module is structured and can be taken as a stand-alone training course; however, delegates will maximise their benefits by taking Module 1 and 2 back-to-back as a two-week training course.

What are the Goals?

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

  • Understand the design of different subsea equipment and subsea pipeline
  • Understand how subsea systems are installed
  • Discover new subsea and marine technologies
  • Identify how subsea processing is performed
  • Appreciate the challenges of subsea and marine operations
  • Learn about new technologies and future trends
  • Get better understanding of subsea systems maintenance techniques
  • Learn about regulations, operation and maintenance of subsea topside interface such as FPSO and FLNG

Who is this Training Course for?

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

  • Offshore subsea engineers who want to expand their knowledge in the subsea and marine industry
  • Engineers from all disciplines who are new to the offshore subsea industry
  • Managers and executives who are new to the offshore subsea industry
  • Project engineers
  • Operation Engineers
  • Maintenance engineers
  • Technicians

How will this Training Course be Presented?

This Petroknowledge training course will utilise a variety of proven adult learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension and retention of the information presented including:

  • Course manual
  • PowerPoint presentations
  • Videos
  • Competency assurance tests including pre-assessment and post-assessment tests

The daily seminars will be highly interactive and participative. This involves regular discussion of applications as well as hands-on exposure to techniques using examples from the offshore work place environment. Delegates are strongly encouraged to bring and share their own experiences, lessons learnt from the work domain. This adds greater relevancy to the content.
