Conference: FPSO Marine Operation And Maintenance



The use of Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) Marine Operation and Maintenance has significantly increased in recent decades. FPSOs have lower cost relative to traditional offshore oil platforms. The latest FPSOs are used for developing deepwater oil fields and reserves where it is either not possible or not practical to install a fixed platform. It is crucial to understand the environmental and design aspects affecting the operation to operate FPSOs successfully. Also, beneficial to know all essential elements of FPSOs. FPSO Operation and Maintenance training  will focus on the key technical challenges and risks associated the operation and maintenance of an FPSO. It will arm the participant with a wealth of knowledge to help them advance their project.
