Course overview

The use of flexible pipe for hydrocarbon and water transport is not a new ‘invention’; in fact the earliest subsea flexible pipe concept was developed during the World War II years under the project name ‘PLUTO’ (Pipe Line Under The Ocean). This pipeline was responsible for transporting fuel across the English Channel into Europe for the Allied Forces where some 1 million gallons of fuel a day was transported for the war effort !

With the advent of the oil and gas industry flexible pipe has been extensively employed for some 40 years now. The major use of flexible pipe rests very much for riser systems, particularly deepwater risers, as well as flowlines. The first use of flexible pipe was used offshore Brazil in 1978, where it remains to this day the market and geographical leader in the use of flexibles owing to the deepwater environment. Similarly, other well established /mature regions such as UKCS, NCS, and offshore West Africa also use flexible pipe systems.

The estimated numbers of flexible pipe will be approximately 5000 units during 2015. The increasing numbers and use of flexible pipe will present further challenging technical and environmental requirements to be met such as more deep and ultra deep water environment where the effects and considerations of HPHT, flow assurance, materials selection etc are required.

This comprehensive course will provide an in depth understanding of flexible pipe materials, manufacturing techniques, practical offshore and subsea applications, damage mechanisms, flexible pipe inspection methodologies, industry codes and standards.

The course is designed for

  • Pipeline Engineers;
  • Process Design Engineers;
  • Operations Engineers and Staff;
  • Piping Engineers;
  • HSE Specialists;
  • Maintenance Engineers and staff; and
  • Managers
