About this Training Course 

The Topside processing systems carry out a number critical functions, such as separating oil & gas, generate power, provide living quarters, facilitate water or gas injection and carry critical safety, drilling and related production equipment.

All these equipment and its functions are packaged into the modules which make up the whole topsides processing plant. The equipment must work safely and effectively under a range of conditions including start-up and bad weather conditions at the field location.

This 3 day training course will demonstrate how these equipment are integrated in the layout on the facility deck. It is illustrated with FPSO process equipment, but is not limited to such systems.

Upon completion of the training, learners will be able to: –

  • Understand the different types of Reservoir Fluids and their typical properties
  • Provide examples of processing specifications of the reservoir fluids for export or disposal
  • Provide an understanding of the functions of the main topsides processing and supporting utility system and the different process modules
  • Discuss the differences of the particular needs of a processing plant on a fixed platforms and moving deck
