The use of Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) has been significantly increased in recent decades. FPSOs have lower cost relative to traditional offshore oil platforms. The latest FPSOs are used for developing deepwater oil fields and reserves where it is either not possible or not practical to install a fixed platform. It is crucial to understand the environmental and design aspects affecting the operation to operate FPSOs successfully. Also, beneficial to know all essential elements of FPSOs such as storage, offloading, power, utility system and safety.

Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) training course will focus on the technical challenges and risks associated with the design, operation and maintenance of an FPSO. The participants from all disciplines will have a wealth of knowledge and a better understanding of FPSO projects.


At the end of Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) training course, delegates will be able to:

  • Understand FPSO Industry overview
  • Learn about regulations and key operational and maintenance requirements
  • Recognise the effects of the marine environment on FPSO design and operation
  • Understand the FPSO storage and offloading operations
  • Understand Health & Safety in operation and maintenance
  • Environment aspects affecting FPSO design and operation


The Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO)training course is beneficial to:

  • Engineers from different disciplines
  • Project engineers and managers
  • Managers and executives who are new to the FPSO industry
  • Operational & maintenance staff
  • Non-engineering personnel working in FPSO environment


This highly practical and results-oriented Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) training course is based on adult learning concept. The facilitator will give plenty of input and then help participants to make sense of the themes through discussion and practice. It incorporates short inspiring demonstrations, roles play and practice to enhance learning. There will be ample time for Q&A, discussions with ‘return to work’ action planning. The program will reinforce key concepts within an inspiring and engaging learning environment. Course manual, presentation, videos and case studies will be used in training.

Pre & Post course assessments will be used to measure the effectiveness of this training.
