About this Training Course 

Multiplex Electro Hydraulic systems have for many years been the system to control production at wells, manifolds and associated system equipment subsea with full control at the platform operations room. This course provides a comprehensive insight and understanding for engineers involved with Offshore Production Control..

Course overview

Offshore Subsea Production Control Systems and Umbilicals covers a broad range of activities that include System Types, Typical Equipments, Operator Interfaces, Control Fluids, Controls Interfaces and a look at future technologies. This course is designed to give a clear understanding to participants of the components of offshore production control technology.

By attending this 3-day training course, participants will be able to:

  • Recognise the integrated nature of field architecture, system design and component selection
  • Identify the appropriate application for subsea control systems, chemical injections and its mode of operation
  • Examine the main subsea control system requirements, their functions, strengths, weaknesses and interfaces
  • Learn subsea control modules, connections, interface with topside equipment and umbilicals
  • Understand key design and installation issues through case studies
  • Understand subsea control equipment procurement, maintenance, failures and safeguarding measures
  • Explore new state of the art technologies for subsea production systems

This training course is designed for:

Engineers and technical professionals working in subsea projects who want a full understanding of the different types of control and umbilical systems applied, including:

  • Subsea Wellhead and Xmas tree / Manifold Engineers
  • Subsea and flowline/pipeline engineers
  • Riser and Umbilical engineers
  • System Design engineers
  • Process engineers
  • Engineering team managers, leaders and supervisors
  • Technical specialists and engineers from manufacturer and supplier companies

For most of his working life, your expert course leader has been in a role that has enabled him to pass on skills and knowledge to others. A full-time role in Training and Development came about in 1996 with the offer to take up a full-time teaching post at Aberdeen College. In 1998, he was recruited by Kvaerner Oilfield Products, an Oil & Gas industry company, specialising in Subsea Control Systems, to develop and implement a Training & Competence program acceptable for its staff of over 600 and their client companies – a challenge he could not resist. In 2003, he broadened his horizons and became an independent Training & Development consultant. Building a reputation for delivering training and development to the Oil & Gas industry to the highest standards, he later joined Jee Ltd, a leading subsea engineering and training company based in Aberdeen. He was tasked with a wide portfolio of training, coaching & mentoring to achieve high levels of competence for the client’s staff and customers. He is also a Science and Engineering Ambassador (Scotland), promoting the need for engineers and technicians for Scotland’s industries, a frequent consultant to the European Economic & Social Committee for standardising Vocational Skills training and competence throughout the EU. He holds memberships in the Society of Operations Engineers, Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development and Society of Underwater Technologies.
