Subsea Awareness Course – Aberdeen
06 November, 2017 - 10 November, 2017
Do you want to know about Subsea Technology and Operations?
Understanding the full lifecycle of a subsea, oil and gas, production field development from Inception through to Decommissioning – then the SUT’s Subsea Awareness Course is geared towards YOU.
The Society for Underwater Technology (SUT) delivers a foundation level Subsea Awareness Course (SAC) that is suitable for personnel from the Operators, the Contractors and other interested organisations, for example; Legal, Finance and Engineering Houses.
This course provides underpinning knowledge for new entrants in the subsea sector of the offshore energy industry, as well as offering a refresher for experienced professionals seeking to update their knowledge.
The course is delivered by experienced personnel from across the sector from Operators, Contractors and Technology Suppliers, many of whom are recognised Technical Authorities (TA), and address’ the complete lifecycle of a subsea asset; looking at design, installation, commissioning production operations and the ultimate decommissioning from reservoir to export.
The course offers a balance of classroom and site visits to manufacturing plants/factories, thereby providing a broad spectrum of opportunity to engage from our highly experienced and respected industry personnel, sharing their knowledge.
- This five-day course was originally developed by the Operator community to address growing skills gaps, which due to its success was transferred to the Society of Underwater Technology in the early 1990’s as the industry learned society for the subsea sector; a non-profit making organisation. Since then, the SAC has been developed and refreshed to reflect the technological developments over the period and is geared for industry personnel who wish to expand their knowledge of subsea systems within the offshore and subsea sector
- The modules are delivered by experienced personnel from Operators, Contractors and Technology System Suppliers to offer a broad perspective of the sector, many industry Technical Authorities – sharing their knowledge.
- The course is especially relevant for new entrants to the subsea sector but can also be invaluable to those transferring from other disciplines within the industry, or personnel who have worked in subsea earlier in their career and appreciate the benefit to be had from a refresher course that includes exposure to the latest technological advances from Reservoir to Export.
