This hands-on course uses case studies, video, and dynamic simulation to provide an in-depth analysis of what constitutes an offshore oil/gas production and processing facility. A comprehensive study of the safety systems required on offshore facilities.

Course outline

  • hydrocarbon engineering
  • oil and gas reservoirs
  • oil and gas separation
  • gas compression and treatment
  • produced and injection waters
  • utility systems
  • emergency shutdown systems
  • fire and gas protection systems

Learning outcomes

  • By the end of this course, you will understand:
  • the characteristics of the various types of oil/gas reservoirs
  • the most applicable production option for exploiting the reservoir
  • the primary processing technology used to separate the fluids
  • the gas processing needed for disposal of associated or produced gas
  • what support utilities are required for both production and life support on the facility
  • the design of an Emergency Shutdown System and how to read a Cause and Effect Diagram
  • the commonly used fire and gas detectors for offshore facilities

Who will benefit
