Marine and Supply Base Operations for Offshore Support World Knowledge

A marine support base acts as a fulcrum between onshore supply routes and the needs of offshore installations. It is a vital element in any supply chain involving marine transportation. All too often, shore-based staff lack a full understanding of working methods in these critical sites. This programme supplies the knowledge your staff need to interface between shore-based and marine operations safely and efficiently.

The programme will provide your shore-based staff with a broad understanding of:

  • the operation, handling and characteristics of supply boats, tugs and similar vessels;
  • supply-vessel load planning;
  • cargo handling and loading bulk and deck cargo;
  • the role and management of the supply base to support offshore exploration and production operations; and
  • health, safety and environmental issues, including regulatory frameworks impacting on safe and effective marine transport and supply base operations.

Is it right for me?

The course is for staff and operators new to offshore support operations, such as transport and materials management staff, logistics planning staff, offshore materials coordinators, secretarial staff and similar groups. It is also suitable for more experienced staff who would benefit from a broader understanding of how a supply base works.
