Offshore Operations (Drilling and Production)

About this Program


Oil and Gas Operations in offshore environments presents special challenges ranging from complex technology, and high cost, to hurricanes.

 

The major operational difference, between land and platform well completions is the economics incentive on platforms to reduce equipment weight wherever possible and to minimize space requirements, such as the use of composite block valves to reduce Christmas-tree size and weight, or the spacing of wellheads, as close together as drilling operations will permit, with just enough room for safe and efficient operations of the tree valves, control valves, and well-workover equipment. 

 

This program teaches the unique offshore environment, complex technology and equipment as well as safety and environmental challenges that must be undertaken and overcome in deep water exploration, production, processing and transportation. It is designed for new entrants and experienced personnel who wish to understand the offshore environment, offshore production structures, subsea technology and the FPSO fundamentals.

 

Learning Outcomes:

 

  • How crude oil and natural gas were formed
  • How underground locations for oil and gas are found beneath the sea. 
  • The Technology used to drill into underground formations.
  • Offshore Reservoir and wellheads.
  • How the oil and gas is transported to the surface.
  • How the crude oil and gas move from the well head to different processing facilities. 
  • What happens to the crude oil and gas in processing plants.
