Subsea Pipelines Engineering
An In-Person Training Course by Esanda.
In-House sessions are available upon request.
Subsea pipelines have made a tremendous impact as a safe and effective hydrocarbons transport system. To date there have been substantive examples of global subsea pipeline projects where the boundaries of materials requirements, construction and installation techniques, inspection and maintenance programmes have all been established and improved upon over the decades. Similarly, breaching deeper and deeper water depths, has seen even further improvements and technical innovation in these and other key areas.
This course has been specifically developed to fulfil industry’s ongoing need for skilled and competent pipeline engineering individuals.
The course will provide a comprehensive insight into the methodologies employed to execute subsea pipelines mechanical engineering design, together with requirements for pipeline routing, permits and authorisations, materials selection, pipelines construction and installation, offshore and vessel requirements, pipeline protection systems, pre-commissioning and commissioning practices, pipeline integrity management practices. In addition, delegates will also gain an appreciation of the support tasks and activities required for subsea pipelines design such as compilation of data sheets, drawings, materials take-off documentation, philosophies and specifications.
Pipeline related case studies and workshops will also be conducted to allow delegates an opportunity to test their pipelines knowledge and practical working examples of pipelines design will be presented.
The Course Is Designed For:
- Subsea pipeline engineers
- Construction & installation engineers / managers
- Materials and Corrosion Engineers
- Integrity engineers
- Facilities engineers
- Operations engineers and managers
- Project Managers
- Graduate engineers
Professor David Newman
Professor David Newman has over 30 years’ extensive national and interantional oil and gas project engineering and management experience, which includes oil and gas operators, EPIC contractors, and Consultancy teams for onshore, offshore and subsea projects with project values ranging from $millions to in excess of $billions with experience in Europe, Scandinavia, Middle East, SE Asia, CIS and Mexico.
He is an excellent team player and a higliy motivated individual with excellend communication, inter-personal and presentation skills. He has experience in leading, managing and supporting small to large scale multi-national, multi-disciplined and multi-cultural project engineering and managemetn teams for the timely, auality and on-budget delivery of projects and the mitigation and resolution of all technical/commercial issues arising during the project. He has extensive experience with interface managment with clients, senior management, committees, board level, equity partners/stakeholders, government departments, national and international contractors, vendors, suppliers, legislative/regulatory bodies and test houses.
David has participated and chaired design, process, constructability, HSE, HazOps, HazIds, Hazans and Envids workshops.
His experience also includeds extensive on-site supervisory experience in desert, swamp, offshore, fabrication/construction yards in UK, Europe, Scandinavia, CIS (Kazakhstan), Middle East, SE Asia, Africa and Mexico.
David has also delivered extensive training, coaching/mentoring to multi-cultural and multi-national engineering staff which included delivery of oil and gas training courses to all levels of engineers, technicians and managers.
