Internship Emissions Estimations
Project Scope The primary objective of this graduation project is to develop a versatile tool that can effectively estimate fugitive emissions from FPSOs and help manage their impact. This aligns with findings from IPCC reports indicating significant contributions of fugitive emissions to overall greenhouse gases in offshore operations (Source: IPCC, 2021, "Climate Change 2021: The Physical Science Basis"). The tool should be able to generate estimates at two stages of the FPSO’s life cycle: Early Stage Estimation: At the very beginning of FPSO projects, when limited information is available. This will allow for preliminary assessments of fugitive emissions and early identification of potential mitigation measures. Detailed Estimation: At the end of FPSO projects, when comprehensive engineering databases are complete with details of the FPSO’s equipment, including valves, flanges, pipes, and seals. This will allow for more accurate estimates of fugitive emissions and a better understanding of their sources. The tool should be data-driven and utilize relevant information sources, such as industry standards, equipment specifications, and historical data from similar FPSOs. It should also consider factors such as the type of FPSO, its age, equipment configuration, operating conditions, and maintenance practices. Timeline The following timeline is proposed for completing the graduation project. This is to be further agreed with the student: Month 1-2: Literature Review and Tool Design     Conduct a comprehensive literature review on fugitive emissions from FPSOs.     Identify relevant data sources and methodologies for estimating fugitive emissions.     Design the structure and functionality of the tool. Month 3-5: Tool Development and Data Collection     Develop the code for the tool using appropriate programming languages.     Collect relevant data from SBM Offshore’s engineering databases and industry sources.     Integrate the collected data into the tool. Month 6-7: Tool Testing and Refinements     Conduct testing of the tool using historical data from similar FPSOs.     Refine the tool’s algorithms and parameters based on testing results.     Document the tool’s development and methodology. Month 8: Dissertation Writing and Presentation     Write a comprehensive dissertation on the development and evaluation of the tool.     Present the findings of the project to SBM Offshore and relevant industry stakeholders. Requirements The ideal candidate for this graduation project should possess the following qualifications: Strong analytical and problem-solving skills Ability to conduct independent research and literature reviews Proficient in programming languages (e.g., Python, R) Familiarity with data analysis tools (e.g., Excel, Tableau) Experience with technical databases Creativity and ability to generate new proposals Benefits The completion of this graduation project will provide the student with valuable experience in: Applying data-driven analysis to solve real-world problems Developing tools and methodologies for estimating fugitive emissions Contributing to SBM Offshore’s efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions Enhancing their professional profile and employability Call for Action This graduation project provides an exciting opportunity for a student to gain hands-on experience in developing a tool to estimate fugitive emissions from FPSOs. The project aligns with SBM Offshore’s commitment to net-zero emissions and offers the potential for significant contributions to the company’s sustainability goals.

Internship - Digitalization and Calculation
Project Scope 1. Identify Input and Method: Review standard methods for firewater demand calculation, considering FPSO specifics. 2. Data Availability in AVEVA: Explore the AVEVA engineering database to identify available data pertinent to firewater calculations. 3. Develop AVEVA Template: Create an automated template in AVEVA Engineering for obtaining information and performing calculations. 4. Export Template for Reporting: Generate a template for official reporting, ensuring compliance and standardization. 5. Interface with Project Schedule: Determine interface requirements for typical project schedules to ensure timely information availability. Project Relevance: This project aligns with SBM Offshore’s focus on digital transformation in the energy sector, especially in renewable energy, gas, and digital services. The digitalization of firewater demand calculations directly supports SBM Offshore's commitment to safety and efficiency in FPSO operations, which are crucial for sustainable energy transition. AVEVA's Role: AVEVA's versatile and configurable engineering software, which allows for efficient multi-discipline collaboration and integration with a range of process simulation, design, and engineering technologies, will be instrumental in this project. This aligns with the company’s aim to automate and integrate engineering processes. Timeline The following timeline is proposed for completing the graduation project. This is to be further agreed with the student: Months 1-2: Data collection and initial development. Months 3-5: Template development and integration. Months 6-7: Testing and refinement. Month 8: Documentation and presentation. Requirements The ideal candidate for this graduation project should possess the following qualifications: Strong analytical and problem-solving skills Ability to conduct independent research and literature reviews Familiarity with data analysis and programming tools Experience with technical databases Creativity and ability to generate new proposals Benefits The completion of this graduation project will provide the student with valuable experience in: Applying data-driven analysis to solve real-world problems Developing tools and methodologies automating engineering processes Contributing to SBM Offshore’s efforts sustainability and safety goals Enhancing their professional profile and employability Call for Action Interested students are encouraged to apply, contributing to innovative solutions in the FPSO sector during a pivotal time in energy transition.
