Offshore Platforms

Why Attend

The offshore oil and gas industry faces many challenges such as harsh environment, installation and cost. The majority of offshore platforms around the world is fixed offshore structures. Good knowledge and competency of the offshore project team members throughout the design, fabrication, installation and commissioning phased is crucial to the successful execution of these projects. The objective of Offshore Platforms training course is to provide delegates with comprehensive information about offshore engineering. The participants from all disciplines will have a better understanding of different types of offshore platforms and how fixed offshore platforms are designed, fabricated, installed and commissioned.
