Introduction to Subsea Positioning Course

25 October Aberdeen, UK





This was an intensive one-day course specifically designed for all offshore and subsea engineering and support staff who deal with the development and operation of subsea fields. It also offered the chance for anyone new, or already within the subsea sector, the opportunity to participate in a short course to raise their awareness of subsea positioning data transmission and their applications.

The seminar is run by experienced personnel from the subsea industry. It is held in a classroom environment, with the sessions being interactive, with every opportunity to ask questions and discuss the material presented. It has the added benefit of accompanying exhibits of vendors equipment and services.

Subsea positioning plays a critical role at every stage of a subsea field development, however an understanding of the available positioning systems, their applications and achievable accuracies, can be crucial to the successful outcome of a project and maintaining project budgets and schedules.

This course is aimed at creating an awareness of the applications of subsea positioning, the vulnerabilities to which they are susceptible, and the requirements to correctly install, calibrate and operate the positioning systems. Participants should complete the course with an understanding of underwater positioning and data transmission, the knowledge to ask informed questions of vendors, and provide practical specifications in tender documents.
