Subsea Control Systems



Course format On-site
Date 2020-08-17 - 2020-12-20

Course content

Models and control systems for subsea processes, including:

  • compressors
  • pumps
  • separators
  • single-phase pipeline flow
  • multi-phase pipeline flow, including slugging
  • ROV/AUV operations
  • hydraulics and hydraulic actuators

The course will also give a general overview over those systems that are currently in use and expected to be used in the future in subsea oil and gas production.
