About this Course
As soon as crude oil and natural gas have been separated into liquid and gas and any other non-refinery or superfluous material, like water, is removed, the crude oil and natural gas for the offshore facility are transported to onshore refineries or to gas processing plants on land.
Most offshore oil and gas production is transported by pipelines to onshore facilities, which require that pipelines be laid from the offshore facility to an onshore center and from thence the crude oil and natural gas are sent to a refinery or gas processing facility.
The technique for laying pipelines under water in the current sense is not an old technology and had its beginnings in England during World War II.Pipeline designs vary depending on what they are transporting—crude oil, natural gas, or refined products—and their function.
Over a third of the worldwide growth in drilling and production is expected to emanate from offshore and technological advances in pipeline construction and safety have been accelerating with the most effective and safe goals.
In this course, you will learn how offshore logistics complements offshore drilling and production, through offshore piping of produced oil and gas, shipping vessel storage and transportation, material, equipment and manpower transportation, communication, applicable international and national regulations, and the management of corrosion due to seawater.
After the completion of this course, you will:
- Know how huge offshore logistics challenges are handled
- Learn more about Offshore Pipelines
- Understand Subsea Pipeline Systems
- Have deeper insight about offshore Pigs & Pigging operations
- Have deep knowledge of Crude Oil Vessel Tanker Types and their Transportation
- Become knowledgeable about Local Laws and International Conventions against Marine Oil Spills
- Know the Seawater Corrosion Parameters
- Be able to manage Corrosion, offshore
- And lots more.
