Subsea UK to host introductory course

Offshore staff

LONDON Subsea UK will host a one-day introductory course on the subsea industry on Thursday, Nov. 12, in London.

The one-day introductory course was developed to share useful insights into the subsea industry both from a UK perspective and as a global sector, looking at how subsea fields are developed, and how subsea systems are designed, installed, operated, and decommissioned.

Aimed primarily at new entrants to the industry, the course is open to anyone looking to gain a greater understanding of subsea systems and processes. The workshop will be delivered by Alistair Birnie, a professor of Subsea Engineering at the National University of Singapore where he specializes in subsea systems and subsea construction, teaching MSc level graduates and managing research programs in the field of ultra-deepwater.

Often likened to “NASA on the seabed,” the workshop will provide a broad but in-depth overview of the sector, covering how technology has evolved over the years to meet the demands of oil producers as they move to harsher and more complex environments in order to recover the world’s remaining reserves.
