Technology Machinery Engineers Need to Know to Work Effectively Subsea: Session 1 and Session 2
MetadataShow full item record
More and more equipment is being installed subsea. These include valves and manifolds, chokes, pumps, compressors, separators, etc. These installation are needed to effectively produce underwater oil and gas deposits. As water becomes deeper, it becomes less effective to install all the equipment above the water’s surface. These applications are occurring in almost all the waters of the world. The skills required to work subsea in this manner are a combination of the basic mechanical skills of machinery equipment specialists coupled to the skills of subsea engineers. Either subsea specialists have to learn hardware engineering skills, or vice versa. This tutorial attempts to present a part of subsea engineering skills to machinery specialists in order to both educate them in some of these skills and to enlighten them to the required additions to their ski8ll set.
