Across the world, oil and gas is being found and produced in ever deeper waters.
Here, water depth, ocean currents and harsh weather conditions may all influence the decision on which type of production installation to use. A fixed installation may not be technically feasible in a particularly challenging location where a floating unit would offer the best solution.
The offshore oil and gas industry have been using floating production, storage and offloading systems, or FPSOs, since the mid-1970s.
This course examines key components of FPSO design, systems development, subsea engineering, operations and economics for the development and management of FPSOs.
The course style is interactive, and participants will be encouraged to share ideas, problems and benchmark against lessons learnt.
