Materials technology for offshore installations

An introduction to materials technology applied in the energy offshore industry will be given in this course.

Course description

This 2-day introductory course discusses most common metallic materials for offshore structures, components and pipelines, including manufacturing methods and fabrication activities used. The course also endeavours to give a more in depth understanding of selected topics like basic metallurgy, welding, hydrogen induced stress-cracking (HISC), pipeline materials and failure investigation. Additive manufacturing, bolts, corrosion and materials selection will also be covered.

Learning objective

Upon completion participants will:

  • Obtain basic competence on the most common offshore metallic materials and their respective fabrication methods
  • Improve understanding of the different material issues typically encountered in an offshore development project.

Target group

  • Materials engineers within the offshore and subsea oil and gas industry with limited materials experience
  • Engineers working with manufacturing and fabrication
  • Design engineers witha  special interest in materials.
