* Subsea Pipelines Engineering Course

Download Agenda for 3-day Course

Download Agenda for 5-day Course


A comprehensive course comprising of case studies that provides an overview of subsea pipelines and rigid risers engineering. This course provides an insight to fundamental issues for a robust, safe, and economical design of subsea pipelines. The course material is carefully selected to cover pipeline design from conceptual to detailed mechanical design including:

subsea pipeline route selection, linepipe material selection, wall thickness selection, local buckling analysis, stress/strain based design, coating selection, cathodic protection, installation methods, on-bottom stability, spanning assessment, fatigue (VIV) analysis, lateral/upheaval buckling, pipe-soil interaction and hydrogen induced cracking.

* Engineering Criticality Assessment (ECA) Course

Download Agenda

Engineering Criticality Assessment (ECA) course to BS7910 / DNV-OS-F101 (3-day course)

Day 1


  • Failure case studies
  • Actual failures and lesson learned

Fitness-for-purpose methods

  • Concept of fitness-for-purpose methods and engineering critical assessment (ECA)
  • Background
  • Parameters that influence structural integrity

Fracture mechanics theory

Materials issue:

  • Awareness of flaw types (mainly in welds) including fabrication and service flaws
  • Materials/service issues and their effects on fracture toughness

Fracture mechanics testing

Non-destructive testing (inspection):

  • Role of NDT in ECA
  • Capabilities of major NDT methods

Introduction to BS 7910/DNV OS-F101

  • Background and definitions (flaw types and stress categorisation)








Day 2

Failure assessment diagram (FAD) approach

Fracture assessment procedures in BS 7910/DNV OS-F10 (calculation steps)

Fatigue of welded structures:
  • Background to fatigue design of welded joints
  • Factors which affect the fatigue of welds
  • Mitigation, intervention and repair
  • Case studies


Day 3

Fatigue assessment procedures in BS 7910/DNV RP-C203

  • Fracture mechanics based calculations of fatigue crack growth

Extending the ECA approach

  • BS 7910/DNV OS-F101 Annexes

Implications of sour service

  • Determination of materials properties
  • Relevant published data
  • Assessment of flaw tolerance
  • Fracture assessment of circumferential girth weld flaws
  • Guidance in BS7910 and DNV-OS-F101
  • Guidance in DNV-RP-F108




* Design By Analysis (DBA) Course

In this course, Design-by-Analysis (DBA) approach using Finite Element Method for pipeline components design is covered. The pipeline components include Bulkheads (for Pipe-in-Pipe or bundles), Flanges, Wye piece, pipeline Tee, reducers etc.


Depending on project requirements, the following codes can be used:

  • BS EN-13445-3
  • PD5500

For sufficiently ductile materials, DBA provides rules for the design of any component under any action. It may be used as an alternative to design-by-formulas and stress linearization and categorisation. The design checks to be considered include:

  • Gross Plastic Deformation
  • Progressive Plastic Deformation
  • Instability and Buckling
  • Fatigue

This training will be delivered on the job due to the nature of this training. 

* Finite Element Analysis (FEA) Course

Advanced Finite Element Analysis

Finite element analysis provides a strong tool to model subsea pipelines and risers which should be applied together with engineering judgement and understanding of the problem. Seabed conditions and imposed hydrodynamic forces, internal pressure, thermal effects, seismic excitation, and accidental loads can be incorporated into the FE model.

This training will be delivered on the job due to the nature of this training.

* Welding and NDT Course

  • Welding Engineering including Preparation and approval of Welding Procedure Specifications (WPS), Procedure Qualification Records (PQR) and selection of appropriate welding techniques. 
  • Non-Destructive inspection services employing commonly available techniques such as PT, MT, UT (TOFD, Phased-Array, AUT), RT, ET, EMAT, etc. on-site and/or in the laboratory.
