Offshore Pipelines Design, Construction & Operation

Programme Description

Pipeline systems represent significant financial investment and constitute a key element of the industrial and public value chain. Offshore pipelines are the arteries of the offshore industry and around the world more than 180,000 km are in service. Part of almost every project, they often form a large component of project cost. The course will provide a complete and up-to-date coverage of the subject, and will take participants through predesign and route selection, detailed design, construction, operation and maintenance. The course is extensively illustrated by case studies.


The Course is designed for Offshore Pipeline Engineers & Managers working directly on Offshore Pipeline Projects or responsible to control & manage Offshore Pipeline Design & Construction Projects.

Pipeline Design Engineers
