Subsea hardware

About the course

This course provides a comprehensive understanding of the equipment used in subsea production systems. Anyone directly or indirectly involved in subsea equipment will benefit from attending this course; from engineers installing the equipment to procurement staff looking to understand more.

Each piece of equipment is covered in detail, explaining their evolution, current best practice and the differences between each proprietary design. The tutor will teach you how to distinguish different types of trees and understand how field layouts can differ. This course also covers manifolds, field architecture, wellhead systems, trees, valves, chokes and connection systems used in subsea developments.
