MAS-2801 Subsea/Piping - 10 ECTS
The course will have a broad review of the following modules:
- Introduction to oil and gas subsea industry
- Fluid composition and properties
- Operational stages
- Exploration activities
- Reservoir and reservoir management
- Drilling and well construction
- Decommissioning and removal of installations
- Laws and regulations as for example NORSOK and material specifications from ASME
- Oil and gas subsea systems:
- Flow charts and isometric drawing
- Pipelines/Risers calculation
- Pipe supports, flanges, valves and other fittings
- Material selection based on standard for different elements in the pipe system
- Treatment equipment (separators and others)
- Measurement systems
- Operation and maintenance
- Current research/Future development of subsea
The course will provide knowledge about techniques, tools, equipment, standards and regulations used in the offshore industry from different prospectives, such as, exploration and exploitation.
Students will subject have basic knowledge about the techniques and equipment used in the exploration and exploitation phases of oil and gas in offshore activities.
Students will also gain in-depth knowledge of related standards and regulations, as well as the design requirements for subsea structures and subsea pipeline systems.
Students will learn about tools used in the subsea oil industry.
Students will be able to apply relevant information for this type of work (LU-M-K-5)
Students will have a basic understanding of the connection between all activities performed from exploration phase towards the operation phase, including remarks on decommissioning of installations.
The skills will be useful in the bachelor thesis (LU-M-F-1.5)
Students can participate in activities related with this topic, having a good understanding of the common practices in assessments, testing and simulation in terms of the use of resources. Students will manage economical and security considerations in the offshore activity (LU-M-G-1.2)
Instruction of the course will consist of lectures, selected exercises and assignments/submissions oriented to build up the final submission in the course.
The teaching material of the course will be based on books and available actual data to be placed on "Canvas". Some self -directed study and learning must be expected. Calculations should be done first manually to understand the principles. Further calculations will be done with the support of computer programs, for example Matlab, or the commercial program named HYSYS. Access to the required programs can be done by remote desktop connection to the university server.
The main deliverable submission consists of a project report that contain descriptions of calculations, design aspects and functioning analysis of choices made on a subsea system, which must be submitted and presented in class to the rest of the students, teacher and other invited persons to the presentation.
Language of instruction and examination is English
Lectures and project work with supervision. The use of technical publications and videos of actual system are encourages during the classes. The project will cover different group activities. Written feedback on assignments and the project reports will be given.
Examination and assessment Examination scheme, test and assessment form, including which assessments should appear on the certificate, or which are included in the calculation basis for a grade that appears on the diploma.
10 written exercises corresponding to the content of the subjects. 8/10 of the exercises must be passed in order to access final assessment. The topics covered for the assignments will include theoretical exercises as well as pre-submission of the individual activities required for the final reports.
Final written report: Subsea/Piping plus presentation must be develop a specific topic following the specifications given.
The final grade will be given in letter grades A-F based on a written project report on specific topics and specifications given, which represents 100%. The exam must satisfy the minimum requirements of the main themes of the subject to be considered as passed (grade E).
