IEM Shout Out – 2017-07 Talk On A Comparative Study: Offshore Facilities Load Out Methodology

July 18, 2017

aMy technical division will be hosting a talk on the 25th July, 2017. It is worth 2 CPD points (why is it shown as 0 on the web page?), and held at Wisma IEM. The course will be presented by Ir. Hj. Ahmad Khairiri.

The presentation will share the author’s experience in load out activities and its’ various methodologies. Load-out is the process of transferring offshore structure from fabrication yard onto the transportation barge/vessel and the process of structure’s sea fastening prior to sail away. The load-out process generates load-out forces on the structure as it moves from the fabrication yard to the barge.  Most often, these activities are performed at the fabrication yard which is located near the sea area.

Ir. Hj. Ahmad Khairiri is a Chartered Engineer, a Fellow to the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, United Kingdom, and a Professional Engineer with the Board of Engineers Malaysia. Currently, he is with Global Project Delivery, Project Delivery & Technology Division of PETRONAS. Responsible in ensuring the governance of onshore construction and fabrication work. Recently completed task include the load-out activities of F12, Angsi-Besar and Bardegg jackets and topsides. Previously, he was responsible to ensure the successful completion of the offshore installation hook up work for PETRONAS first floating LNG, PFLNG SATU Project. He was with PETRONAS Carigali Sdn Bhd, OGP Technical Services Sdn Bhd and PETRONAS Gas Bhd involving in various project locally and globally.

IEM Shout Out – 2017-08 One-Day Course on “The Design of Oil & Gas Fixed Offshore Structure”

July 12, 2017

Structural engineers, please attend.

My technical division will be hosting a 1 day  course on the 12th August, 2017. It is worth 6 CPD points, and held at Wisma IEM. The course will be presented by Assoc. Professor Dr Venkatesh Rajagopalan (Venkat)

The first offshore structure was built to extract oil in the 1930s. Since then, there are now more than 1000 offshore structures worldwide, extracting oil & gas under the ground to meet the world demands.  This one-day course will provide the audience with the basic principles in designing these fixed offshore structures.  It will be presented in a way that is comprehensible to the engineers who are with or without the oil and gas background.
The course will try to address some of the engineering issues that have to be considered when designing an offshore structure. Some of these issues are listed below:
– The environmental loads (such as wave and wind) and accidental loads (such as blast and fire) that the structure has to face throughout its design life.
– How the structure will be fabricated, transported and then installed at its offshore location.
– Technical requirements from the contemporary design codes and third-party certifications.
– The types of analysis that need to be carried out to ensure the structure can meet the above challenges.

Assoc. Professor Dr Venkatesh Rajagopalan (Venkat) graduated from Annamalai University, India with a degree in Structural Engineering in 1989.  He then obtained a post graduate degree in Engineering Management and Post-Doctoral in Structural Engineering from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. He has more than 26 years of working experience in various roles.

He is currently a Senior Principal Structural Engineer at McDermott Malaysia. He has presented talks at various symposiums in India, Singapore and Australia on Design on Offshore structural related topics.
