Subsea Engineering Education
A joint collaboration between Aker Solutions,Pune
and
Maharashtra Institute of Technology, Pune

As the number of wells in remote and hazardous environments increases, the technologies to explore, drill, produce, and handle accidents associated with them need to evolve to address the increased complexity and difficulty. Dependence on robotics technologies and more sophisticated instruments is increasing. Enhancing existing systems with greater intelligence, autonomy, and reliability should help relieve human operators of the tedious and time-consuming aspects of operations. More-precise data from new instruments, improved models of environmental conditions, more-capable actuators, and greater sensory perception of these remote environments can extend operational capabilities, improve safety and reliability, reduce the environmental impact, and reduce costs of operations.

Subsea engineering is perhaps one of the most important, yet most difficult aspects of the offshore petroleum industry. The underwater production environment presents unique challenges to subsea engineers, particularly deepwater operations where temperature, pressure and corrosion test the durability of submerged equipment and tools. Most subsea engineering operations depend on automation and remote procedures to construct and repair components beneath the surface of the water. The subsea production system carries some unique aspects related to the inaccessibility of the installation and its operation and servicing. A subsea specialization trains offshore engineering professionals to design equipment, tools and infrastructure utilized in offshore petroleum production.

Subsea flow assurance can be defined as the integrated management of solids (e.g., hydrates, paraffins, asphaltenes, scale, and sand), fluid properties, corrosion, and operating procedures required to sustain production in a dynamic, multiphase subsea environment. Flow-assurance design and operation become challenging in deep water because of the combination of low temperatures, high internal hydrostatic pressures, and economic drivers for long offsets and high availability.

Subsea Engineering provides unique opportunity to young dynamic engineers of different disciplines to learn different aspects of subsea engineering. Aker Solutions and Maharashtra Institute of Technology, Pune have initiated to promote awareness and education related to subsea engineering amongst engineering students of different discipline.
