Countdown to Event

This course covers the design, construction and maintenance of offshore platforms in detail, with comprehensive focus on the critical issues in design that the engineers usually face.


Corrosion of offshore structure platforms costs a lot of money to control and to maintain within the allowance limit so that it will not affect the structure’s integrity, so methods for designing and selecting a suitable cathodic protection system and the advanced methods of protecting the structure from corrosion are very important to the structural engineer, and they are covered in depth in this course.


Furthermore, it is very important to the owner, engineering firm and contractor that the offshore project’s lifespan be identified. In other words, the structural engineer should have an overview of the relation between the structure’s system and its configuration from both an economic and an engineering point of view.


Most offshore structure platforms were constructed world-wide in the period of growing oil investment between 1970 and 1980, so these platforms now are over 40 years old. Consequently, a lot of mature offshore structures are going through rehabilitation designed to increase and maintain their structural reliability.


Development of the integrity management system with up-to-date and advanced techniques for qualitative and quantitative risk assessment has been essential to the risk-based inspection and maintenance planning that enhance the reliability of platforms during their lifespan. Accordingly, this course provides advanced techniques for topside and underwater inspection and assessment of offshore structure platforms, as well as ways to implement the maintenance and rehabilitation plan for the platform that match business requirements.


It is also important to present case studies of repair and strengthening of platforms and the methods of decommissioning platforms when required.


The course serves as an overview of, and a practical guide to, traditional and advanced techniques in design, construction, installation, inspection and rehabilitation of fixed offshore structure platforms, along with the principles of repairing and strengthening the structures and the methodology for delivering a maintenance plan for the fleet of platforms.


In addition to the traditional lecture delivery, the course delivery emphasizes the use of group discussions and actual design problems in order to ensure participants can put the newly learned concepts to use. The case studies are from existing platform projects; video and photos used are for all steps of fabrication until installation.
