Collaborative program on integrated operations in remote and harsh locations

In collaboration with the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Memorial University is hosting the NTNU-MUN INTPART Summer Program on integrated Operations in Remote and Harsh Locations from June 27-Aug. 5, 2016.

The program is a great inter- and intra-collaboration,” said Dr. Lesley James, a professor of process engineering at Memorial and the program’s principal investigator. “Dr. Faisal Khan, head of process engineering, and I are collaborating with Dr. Stephen Butt, process engineering; Drs. Ginger Ke and Travor Brown in the Faculty of Business Administration; Dr. Catherine Dutton and Captain James R. Parsons from the Marine Institute; and Bjørn Egil Asbjørnslett, Jon Kleppe, and Vidar Hepsø from NTNU.”

Over the next six weeks, students from Memorial and NTNU will attend customized courses on Memorial’s St. John’s campus and at the Marine Institute as well as the Offshore Safety and Survival Centre in Foxtrap on integrated operations; drilling; improved oil recovery; safety and risk management; automated underwater vehicles; marine safety; and marine logistics and supply. At the end of the program, students will give a final presentation on a case study to design an integrated operations centric exploration/development plan for the Flemish Pass area, offshore Newfoundland and Labrador.
