Course Description


This GLOMACS Oil & Gas Technology training course on Fundamentals of Offshore Systems Design & Construction provides a complete and comprehensive overview of the technology for the design and construction of all types of offshore systems. This training course guides the participant from the basic design through construction, fabrication, load-out, and commissioning to start-up and handover of the facility. This 5-day Oil & Gas Technology training course on Fundamentals of Offshore Systems Design & Construction will highlight all major components required for offshore developments, such as fixed and floating platforms, FPSOs, risers, pipelines, process, and utilities.

This training course focuses on the key technical challenges and risks associated with the execution of Offshore System design and construction. It will arm the participant with a wealth of knowledge to help them advance their project.

This Fundamentals of Offshore Systems Design & Construction training course will feature:

  • Fixed structures, floating structures and mobile structures
  • Field architecture and development, well construction
  • Environmental conditions affecting design
  • Construction, fabrication, load out and installation of the facility
  • Interfaces, commissioning and decommissioning of offshore systems


By the end of this Fundamentals of Offshore Systems Design & Construction training course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the key considerations and characteristics of each type of offshore fixed and floating structure
  • Understand the effects of the ocean environment on facilities design, construction, and operations
  • Interpret the impact that space, loads and forces have on the structural design and global performance of offshore structures
  • Recognize and manage key design and operational interfaces between the major components of offshore facilities systems

Training Methodology

This Fundamentals of Offshore Systems Design & Construction training course on Fundamentals of Offshore Systems Design & Construction will utilise a variety of proven adult learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension and retention of the information presented.
