Subsea systems

About the course

Developing your knowledge of the equipment used, market drivers and issues affecting subsea production, this course covers subsea systems from design and installation through to operation. Ideal for engineers, technical team leaders and managers looking for an overview of the area, this course will help you manage projects.

Demonstrating how subsea systems are integral to subsea production, this course goes into detail about system configurations, spoolpieces, trees, control systems, umbilicals and manifolds. Workover operations, subsea abandonment, decommissioning and recent developments in subsea pumping and compression will also be discussed. With scenario-based exercises and a site visit to a manufacturer where you will see functioning subsea equipment first-hand, this course combines both theory and hands-on experience.
