Subsea Pipeline Engineering Course

The Subsea Pipeline Engineering Course, led by Prof. Andrew Palmer and Dr. Roger King, will provide a complete and up-to-date overview of the area of Subsea Pipeline Engineering, taking delegates through the pre-design phase, design, construction, installation, operation and maintenance. It will give a complete picture of the work of design engineers and pipeline construction companies, using actual case studies from around the world to highlight the topics discussed.

This acclaimed course will provide a thorough and up-to-date review of the field, taking students through all phases of subsea pipeline engineering, including:

  • Route selection 
  • Construction, Installation 
  • Pipelaying and trenching 
  • Hydraulics and flow assurance 
  • Insulation, Design for stability 
  • Span assessment and correction 
  • Structural analysis 
  • Upheaval and lateral buckling 
  • Marine environment, Design codes 
  • Internal inspection and corrosion monitoring 
  • Materials selection 
  • Materials for sour service 
  • Flexible pipe 
  • Internal & external corrosion and their prevention 
  • Microbiological corrosion 
  • Increasing corrosion resistance 
  • Cathodic protection 
  • Mishaps, risk and repair 
  • Decommissioning 
  • Current and future developments

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

Engineers from oil & gas companies, construction companies, pipe and service suppliers and regulatory authorities, who are newly qualified, have recently moved into pipeline engineering or hold broad responsibilities that include pipelines.
