The course is designed to help the participants to acquire the fundamental knowledge of FPSO Vessels (both New Builds & Tanker Conversions) the full details of the Topsides Processing technology. Upon completion of these courses, participants should be able to understand the basics of FPSO and offshore oil & gas processing systems, and how they are Operated as part of a Field Development. Case Studies, videos and multimedia will be used to illustrate operating principles and lessons learned from past successful projects:
