First lessons will be devoted to the description of the continental shelf itself, current state of the world and Russian shelf development. Main stages of the offshore field development will be discussed, facilities used on different stages of the field development will be described. Next point of discussion will be particularities of field arrangement including offshore drilling, design, construction and installation of production platform (mentioning the main features of the treatment system of the top side of the platform). In the end of the course main aspects of health safety and environment (HSE) during the offshore project implementation will be given as well as the most powerful accidents (as a consequences of non-observance of HSE aspects) will be observed.

After having completed the course, the candidate is supposed to:

  • be able to choose the type of oil platform for the offshore field development;
  • be able to describe all main features of each type of the offshore field development;
  • understand the connection between the reservoir properties and types of wells and production platforms;
  • understand the principles of treatment system design;
  • be able to choose the method of hydrocarbon transportation taking into account the particularities of the offshore field;
  • know how to make risk assessment for accident prevention.
