14th August 2008
Fremantle Room, Parmelia Hilton Hotel, Mill Street, Perth

Subsea production is not a new concept; however, advances in subsea technologies continue to enhance the
economic development of offshore exploration discoveries in all water depths. Crucial to the economic success of
such developments is the need to understand the consequesces of one’s actions. This one-day course is aimed at
creating an awareness of the applications of subsea equipment and plant, how subsea equipment is operated, the
vulnerabilities to which it is susceptible, the requirements to continuously inspect, maintain and repair and the
consequences of equipment downtime and lost production.

                                                                                                               Pictures courtesy of FMC Technologies Australia
