Subsea Structures Training

About the Course

The course focuses on subsea systems from design and installation through to operation. This course explains how the whole system works in conjunction. The course gives detailed idea about design, analysis, construction and installation aspects of subsea manifolds, SSIV structures, wellhead protection structures, integrated drilling/manifold templates, riser bases and flexible riser system ancillary equipment. The design part also includes the strength evaluation of suction piles which supports the subsea structures. The course gives in-depth, technical aspects detailing the engineering behind Flow line installations, Riser, umbilical and its substructures spool installations. The course content gives a brief description about the subsea installation process, different methods of installation, and the different types of subsea installation vessels.

Who Should Attend

Engineers and researchers involved in the design of subsea structures and subsea systems, Contracts engineers, Flowline engineers, Team leaders, Conversion Engineers, Pipeline engineers, Project engineers andmanagers, Subsea and offshore controls engineers, Safety inspectors will benefits from attending this course. The course is innovative in both content & structure with a careful balance of theory & practice.

Duncan Warwick:

Duncan Warwick gained a BSc in Naval Architecture & Ocean Engineering from the University of Glasgow in 1985. After a 5 year period of research and lecturing in Ship and Ocean Structures also at the University of Glasgow he has gained 23 years’ experience in the field of offshore subsea structural engineering. His experience includes the design, analysis, construction and installation aspects of subsea
manifolds, SSIV structures, wellhead protection structures, integrated drilling/manifold templates, riser bases and flexible riser system ancillary equipment. He also has experience in the design and installation of deepwater structures such as in-line PLETS and PLEMs and suction pile founded deepwater manifolds. This experience has been gained with turnkey subsea engineering contractors including McDermott’s, Rockwater and Technip. From 1999 to 2006 he was Team Leader of the Subsea Structures and Equipment Engineering Team within Technips’ Offshore Engineering Division which supported the Technip Group worldwide in the design and analysis of subsea structures and pipelay equipment engineering. Since 2006 he has been Team Leader of the Subsea Structures Design Team within Genesis where he has specialised in the design of subsea structures from concept through to detailed design.
Purnendu Das

Purnendu Das BE, ME, PhD, C.Eng, C.MarEng, FRINA, FIStructE, FIMarEST has been the Director of ‘ASRANet Ltd’ (an ISO 9001-2008 company) since February 2006. He retired as Professor of Marine Structures in the Department of Naval Architecture & Marine Engineering at the University of Strathclyde, UK. Past EU projects were MARSTRUCT (a network of excellence on Marine Structure) and SHIPDISMANTL (a cost effective and environmentally friendly dismantling of ship structures). Past industrial projects included work from the UK Health and Safety Executive (HSE), MoD UK, Subsea-7 UK, Shell, Woodgroup and US Navies etc. He was the principal investigator of many EPSRC projects. Before joining the University of Glasgow in 1991 he worked with British Maritime Technology as Principal Structural Engineer (1984-91). He is the author of more than 250 publications, including contract reports and more than 60 journal papers and is a member of the editorial boards of the ‘Journal of Marine Structures’, ‘Journal of Ship & Offshre Structures’, ‘Journal of Engineering under Uncertainty: Hazards, Assessment and Mitigation’ and ‘Journal of Ocean and Climate System’ amongst others. His areas of research include limit state design and analysis & reliability analysis of ship & offshore structures. Purnendu Das has wide ranging industrial and academic contacts and has advised and supervised 20 PhD students, to his credit. Details of visits and collaborations include his various sabbatical study periods spent at University of California, Berkeley, USA (July – September 1996), at Lloyd’s Register of Shipping (August 1997), Kockums Ltd (July 1998) and spent some time at Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), Lisbon (July 2000). He has been running various successful CPD courses which are attracting many people from different industries. These courses are on ‘Fatigue & Fracture Analysis’, ‘Ships at Sea’, ‘Advanced Analysis and Design of Offshore Structures’, ‘Offshore Floating System Design’, ‘Structural Response under Fire and Blast Loading’ and ‘ esign of Pipelines and Risers’ amongst others. He was a member of ISSC (International Ship and Offshore Structure Congress) for the periods of 1991-97 and 2003- 2006. He was a member of the OMAE (Offshore Mechanics and Arctic Engineering) Organising Committee on ‘Safety and Reliability’. He has organised six ASRANet International Conferences in 2002 (Glasgow), 2004 (Barcelona), 2006 (Glasgow), 2008 (Athens), 2010 (Edinburgh) and 2012 (London) where a large number of participants from various countries attended. The theme of the conference is the integration of risk, advanced structural analysis and structural reliability analysis as applicable to various engineering structures. He is now the member of “Research committee” of the
Institution of Structural Engineers (I.Struct.E) London.

Tanmay Sarkar
