Offshore Structure Design, Construction & Maintenance

Offshore Structure Design, Construction & Maintenance


This training seminar will review the fundamentals behind all types of fixed offshore structures and, in the case of fixed platforms, will cover applications of these principles. The overall objective is to provide participants with an understanding of the design, construction and risk based maintenance for offshore platforms, specifically, the theory and process of such design and the use of current applicable engineering methods in the design of fixed offshore platforms.

This training seminar will feature:

  • Case studies on petroleum industry
  • Codes and standards with technical practice
  • The new trend of integrity management system
  • The engineering and pitfalls in construction
  • The pushover structure analysis technique
  • ROV under water inspection and CP system design


At the end of this seminar, participants will be familiar with:

  • Offshore steel structure design overview
  • Offshore structure platform
  • The loads applied on offshore structure platform
  • The modern technique on the risk based inspection for maintenance plan for fleet platforms
  • The steps of fabrication and construction and the ways to control these steps
  • The assessment of the existing offshore structure platform
  • Design of CP system

Training Methodology

This training seminar will utilize a variety of proven adult learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension and retention of the information presented. The daily workshops will be highly interactive and participative. The illustration will depend on videos and photos.

In addition to the traditional lecture delivery, the seminar delivery emphasizes the use of group discussions and actual design problems in order to ensure participants can put the newly learned concepts to use.

Organizational Impact

  • Enhance the aware of better design for offshore structure
