WEBINAR - One-Day Course On “Offshore Platform and Facilities for Exploration and Production Including Structural Health Monitoring For Asset Life Monitoring”
Venue: Digital Platform
Date & Time: 19 Oct 2020 (9:00 AM - 5:00 PM) Closed
CPD: 7
Closing Date Before: 16-Oct-2020 (Subject to change based on availability of seat)
Organised By Technical Division - Oil, Gas and Mining AND Marine Engineering & Naval Architecture


The engineering aspects of offshore facilities are often a major decision criteria in the Final Investment Decision (FID). Facilities form the critical components of an offshore asset’s life cycle and is deployed in both exploration and production.  Offshore structures design and selection undergo rigorous sets of considerations depending on reservoir and environmental requirements. This will allow designers to carefully select their platform design, hence reduce the impact of either under-designing or over-designing a facility. This course will also have special emphasis on the distribution and pipeline networks that support these offshore facilities. This course will also focus on design and concept selections.

The aim of the course is to:

• Share critical knowledge amongst the participants on facility characteristics of offshore
  structures that will enable them to make informed decisions during the appraisal of a design.
• Aims to educate participants on the translation of design concept consideration into design
  aspects of an offshore facility.

To be exposed to the design considerations and differentiating advantages and disadvantages of both fixed and floating offshore facilities and the supporting pipeline / hydrocarbon support network.

At the end of the course, 3 main questions will be answer :

  Provide an overview of offshore decommissioning activities
  Understanding the standards, law and guidelines that govern decommissioning
  Clear understanding on the waste management criteria and environmental standards
     as a result of this end-of-life activity.


1) Prof. Ir. Dr. Mohd Shahir Liew

Professor Shahir has been practicing in the construction and offshore industry for 23 years, he is now the Deputy Vice Chancellor Research and Innovation (DVCRI) at Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP), Malaysia in charge of the business development portfolio and catalyzing the research ecosystem for accelerated growth. Professor Shahir aspires for a better tomorrow in Malaysia through the approach of sustained growth in niche capabilities and high-end knowledge areas. He believes that these are crucial for the country to reach developed nation status and strongly advocates for the scientific and engineering community to always add cutting edge dimensions to their set of capabilities and competencies. Professor Shahir throughout his career has spearheaded several strategic initiatives in the area of competency development including being one of the pioneering groups in Malaysia to develop wind engineering competencies and was the Chairman of the National Standards MS1553 Wind Code in 1999. In this time in the Malaysian Oil and Gas Services Council (MOGSC), he has served as the Chairman of the Competency and Training Working Group identifying critical industry gaps in the oil and gas industry. His continued service as the Honourary Secretary has also seen his leading participation in the Human Resources Development Fund (HRDF) for the National Occupational Skill Standard (NOSS) and Sectorial Training Committee (STC-17). He is also the current Fellow of the Energy Institute Malaysia and is closely overlooking the development of niche professional accreditation tracks in Malaysia for engineers in the energy sector. Professor Shahir graduated summe cum laude in Civil Engineering from Texas Tech University (USA) in 1983 and subsequently fast-tracked towards the completion of his Ph.D in Civil Engineering in 1988 from the same alma mater.

2) Ir. Dr. Lim Eu Shawn

Ir. Dr. Lim Eu Shawn obtained his Ph.D in Civil Engineering from Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP), Malaysia in the areas of offshore engineering with particular emphasis on metocean, seismic engineering, offshore design and asset integrity. He is currently the Head of the Offshore Engineering Centre, UTP (OECU). He actively engages with various major oil and gas corporations on technology development and specialist consultancy solutions He also engages in active competency building in the offshore engineering industry and has previously engaged in training programmes via MSSA and HRDF. He represents MSSA in the development of national offshore structures code MS ISO 19901/2 and is a Chartered Engineer of Energy Institute . He is also an accredited trainer recognized by the Malaysian Human Resource Development Fund (HRDF). He actively seeks collaboration opportunities within the oil and gas fraternity through value enhancement and innovation of technologies via university-industry partnership models

Limited to 470 participants only (first come basis) and confirmation email will be sent for successful registration latest by 18 October 2020 @ 5.00 PM
