Seawater Lift and Circulation System

The seawater lift and circulation system supplies filtered seawater to process and drilling users.  This system serves as a heat sink for the platforms cooling requirements.

In this course, participants will be exposed to typical sea water lift systems through the use of Process and Instrumentation diagrams (P&ID) drawings and an explanation of the pumps and major parts that make up this system.  Additional topics that will be covered include operation, control, Emergency Shutdown Devices (ESD) considerations, and the health and safety aspects of a typical sea water lift and circulation system.
