Offshore Center Danmark 19 Yearbook 2007 Basic Course in offshore oil/gas Offshore Center Danmark offers 2 basic courses in offshore oil/gas. The courses are independent of each other and are adapted for em- ployees with a need for knowledge about the most common terms in the offshore sector. Production The Production course provides the participants with basic knowledge about offshore production of oil/gas. Topics include: what is oil and gas, geology, the oil adventure in the North Sea, how is oil/gas ex- tracted, what is happening on the platform and distribution of oil/gas. Safety The Safety provides an overview of the authorities, organizations and the legal frames within the offshore oil/gas area. The course also introduces the important area HSEQ (Health, Safety, Environment and Quality). Both courses run over 2 days and are held twice a year in Esbjerg. The courses are also offered as company speciﬁc courses where both the Production and Safety course are combined into one 2-day course. This can be held at the premises of your company and results in an economic beneﬁt when your company has 10 or more people attending the course. Course programs and further info can be found at www.offshorecenter.dk under the menu Uddannelse (in Danish) or by contacting Offshore Center Danmark: +45 3697 3670 / firstname.lastname@example.org. 20 Offshore Center Danmark Yearbook 2007 SA F E TY & S U P PO R T AT S E A Flexible vessels Despite the fact that ESVAGT’s ﬂeet is geared to solving highly specialist tasks at sea, the individual ships are suﬃciently ﬂexible to Environmentally Sustainable handle a wide range of assignments.

The world’s largest and most advanced jack- up drilling rig for rough waters was delivered to Maersk Contractors at the beginning of 2003. Later, a sister rig was delivered by the shipbuilding yard HYUNDAI Heavy Indus- tries in Ulsan, Korea. Odegaard & Danneskiold-Samsoe (ØDS) has performed noise prediction and provided consultancy assistance to HYUNDAI with regard to the measures needed to comply with the noise requirements. The requirements are among the strictest in the world due to the fact that both rigs are to be registered in Denmark The Danish Energy Authority requests a prediction of the noise exposure for each job category. This request made it necessary to calculate the sound distribution room-for-room on each deck. The plot illustrates the predicted noise distribution in an engine room. “Mærsk Innovator” is designed for a harsh environment like the situation in the North Sea or other places having a similar type of weather. The distance between the accommodation module and the production module is as large as possible. This separation contributes signiﬁcantly to a low noise level in the accommodation module. and are to perform drilling in the North Sea. Subsequently, during experimental test at the commissioning stage, all predicted ﬁgures were in compliance with the measured ﬁgures. Low-noise design Even at the conceptual stage, noise was considered. Thus, from the beginning, Maersk Contractors has provided as large a separation of the area of production and accommodation as possible. Furthermore, Maersk Contractors has designed an appropriate general arrange- 22 Offshore Center Danmark Yearbook 2007 ment.

Therefore, careful considera- tion to the asymmetry of this structure was required when developing the test pro- gramme. The tests demonstrated that FORCE Technology’s offshore expertise extends from the surface to the bottom of the sea. Prior to testing FORCE Technology exam- ined the preliminary construction drawings and offered a number of design modiﬁcations to improve the ability to over-trawl, based upon extensive prior experience in this ﬁeld. Together with a ﬁshery expert from SINTEF in Hirtshals, the likely ﬁshing practices in the Ormen Lange Sea area were assessed. Selection and preparation of scaled models of the trawl and doors were carried out, and scale models of the two subsea structures were constructed. Prior to testing in the tow- ing tank, preliminary tests were conducted in air by dragging a trawl door over the model at various angles. This technique, whilst not modelling the precise dynamics of the trawl door passage over the subsea structure, provides a rapid identiﬁcation of potential snag areas, allowing these to be addressed by model modiﬁcations, thus saving time in the tank tests. Finally, the models were tested in the towing tank, by towing a full trawl and door model Towing setup in the towing tank. at scaled speeds over the subsea structure models resting on the tank bottom.

Nielsen, Danfoss A/S On offshore platforms space is limited, and operators need to take this into consideration when deciding which pump manufacturer to choose. Furthermore, methanol easily starts cavitations, thus conventional pumps quickly break down due to cavitations inside the pumps.

If left to individuals, projects and departments the storage could be haphazard and the material could soon become difﬁcult to access for outsiders, and might be hard to ﬁnd even for insiders. This is why GEUS, like most geo- logical surveys, has centralized its facilities for sample storage, and made common data- bases for the registration of sample material. The sample material from the Danish off- shore activities makes up the major part of the material in GEUS’ central store facility – often called GEUS’ Core Store although it also holds different kinds of other material. Since the start of the Danish hydrocarbon exploration onshore and offshore, it has been part of every exploration concession and production licence that core samples, at inter- vals speciﬁed by the Danish Energy Agency (DEA), ditch cuttings and formation ﬂuid samples must be sent to GEUS, representing quite a lot of construction work, the main is full, every time a new box enters the front the DEA.

In 2006 Vestas have produced turbines for several of the active offshore wind farms in Denmark, the UK, the Neth- erlands and Sweden. In 2006 a new division, Vestas Offshore, was established in order to become even bigger on the growing offshore wind market. One of Vestas newest offshore wind projects is the Offshore Windpark Egmond aan Zee, located a few km off the Dutch North Sea coast. The wind farm is being developed by NoordzeeWind (a consortium between Nuon Renewables and Shell Wind Energy) and expected to be completed ultimo 2006.

For that purpose, it is necessary to study the wind power impact on the network using load ﬂow and short-circuit simulations as well as data analysis of wind generation patterns and severe power system events.

Such limits may apply to wave heights and periods, to long period waves (swell) heights and periods, and possibly to the wave direction relative to the installa- tion vessel. Accurate information on the wave and swell conditions to be expected is required for all marine operations. Wave forecasts can be produced similar to weather forecasts. Such wave forecasts are based on the wind ﬁelds from the weather forecast. Accurate wave forecasts have proved beneﬁcial in both increasing the safety and reducing the downtime of marine operations and hence signiﬁcantly reduce the costs. are based on DHI’s MIKE 21 SW (a WAM considerably.

Article by journalist Teddy Gehrke. Next year Kursuscenter Vest (Training Centre West) in Esbjerg carries through a major rebuilding of the premises, where the regional offshore companies already now are re-training their employees. The new modern workshops are closely combined with the aim of constantly offering educa- tions in line with time. The Centre of Control and Regulation has got approximately 25 years of experience in the instruction of instrumentation and regu- lation as well as hydraulics, but the method of instruction is very different today.
