Sea Water Lift 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 P& ID drawings and an explanation of the pumps and major parts that make up this system.

Additional topics will cover operation, control, ESD considerations and the health and safety aspects of a typical sea water lift system.
