Designed For

Engineers, designers and operators who are actively involved in the design,

specification, construction, and operation of offshore pipeline systems.

You Will Learn

You will learn How To:
  • Apply mechanical, strength, and physical principles to pipeline design, material selection, construction, and operation
  • Describe the key construction methods
  • Define the importance of environmental conditions, construction methods, and pipeline system hydraulics in design, installation, and operations of offshore pipeline systems
  • Identify special design and construction challenges of offshore pipeline systems
  • Incorporate construction methods into the design of a pipeline system
  • Identify the principal interfaces of pipeline facilities, such as platforms, floating production systems, sub-sea wellheads, and SPMs on design, construction, and operations of offshore pipeline systems
  • Identify offshore safety and environmental practices and their effect on design, construction, and operations
