About this Training Course 

This 2-day training course will focus on the key technical questions that an FPSO and/or FLNG project team need to address as part of the overall design project. The course has been exclusively designed to equip participants with key tools needed to find answers to these questions and to make the appropriate decisions to advance future projects. The course will cover the full spectrum of issues relating to FPSO and/or FLNG design projects which will allow technical personnel obtain a better understanding of challenges and risk areas associated with this.

By attending this 2-day training course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the floating production market by geography and their design types and characteristics
  • Examine the key design and technology considerations for FPSO construction today
  • Identify the critical design requirements, codes and standards which govern FPSO design
  • Review the main functions of topside process systems, its typical production capabilities and related disciplines
  • Understand key design considerations for Hull, Mooring, Swivels & Fluid Transfers Systems and Risers
  • Learn about oil export and offshore offloading requirements and systems
  • Gain an overview of FPSO design development projects and the key factors for success
  • Review the introduction of FLNG technology and current projects
