  • 4. Training by Penspen We have an international reputation in training courses. We present about 20 courses around the world, each year. We have trained over 4000 engineers worldwide.Copyright Penspen © 2011
  • 5. Penspen: University Teaching ■ Penspen has always worked with universities. ■ Masters programme started Aberdeen in 2001 by local companies in North East England at Newcastle University. ■ Penspen took lead. Newcastle ■ 42 students in 2010-11. London MSc in Pipeline EngineeringCopyright Penspen © 2011
  • 6. Penspen: University Teaching ■ Masters programme in Subsea Engineering and Management started in 2009. ■ Penspen assist with lecturers and materials. MSc in Subsea EngineeringCopyright Penspen © 2011
  • 7. Learning: The Future? ■ What will our workplace look like in 10 year’s time? ■ How will we be ‘learning’ in the future? ■ Will we still be... ■ attending residential classes...?Copyright Penspen © 2011
  • 8. Learning: The Future? ■ Residential, full time training/education courses seem... dated? ■ Why not use the internet, social networks, iPads, etc.? ■ As everybody under the age of 35 already does...?! ■ Education and training needs to fit in with today’s modern worker.Copyright Penspen © 2011
  • 9. Learning: The Future? ■ The future for learning is... ■ Your mobile device will become your office, classroom and organiser. ■ Social media literacy will be a job requirement. ■ The corporate curriculum will use video games, simulations, etc., as delivery modes. ■ Your training and education will be based around your timetable, lifestyle and job.Copyright Penspen © 2011
  • 10. Presentation Introduction Knowledge Management Pipeline Engineers and Engineering The Need for Education and Training The FutureCopyright Penspen © 2011
  • 11. Knowledge: from Data & Information ■ Education and training gives you ‘knowledge’ ■ Knowledge is ‘information in action’ ■ It includes data, information, skills, experience, lessons learnt, etc. Value to company Knowledge Information Data More human interpretation, awareness, etc..Copyright Penspen © 2011
  • 12. The Knowledge Process ■ The path to engineering competence has four three steps: Relevant academic/trade Educate qualifications Industry-specific Industry- Train training Knowledge Management Field experience Mentor & mentoring Continuous professional development ReadyCopyright Penspen © 2011
  • 13. The Knowledge Process ■ The path is mainly ‘practical’: Relevant academic/trade Theoretical Educate qualifications Industry-specific Industry- Train Practical training Knowledge Management Field experience Mentor & mentoring Continuous professional development ReadyCopyright Penspen © 2011
  • 14. The Path to Competence... is Blocked.... ■ The path to competence is blocked... Relevant academic/trade Few academic Educate qualifications courses Few accredited Industry-specific Industry- Train courses training Knowledge Few staff Management Field experience Mentor with time & mentoring Few structured Continuous professional courses development ReadyCopyright Penspen © 2011
  • 15. Knowledge: Importance ■ We are not educating or training our workforce! ■ We need a radical change! ■ We need to manage our knowledge different. ■ We need to change how we educate and train. ■ Old thinking: Knowledge is power ■ New thinking: Sharing Knowledge is powerCopyright Penspen © 2011
  • 16. Knowledge: Importance for Competing* ■ Education and training make business sense: ■ companies compete based on the knowledge of our staff. Your Organisation Innovative Innovator Knowledge Leader Advanced Viable Knowledge Competitor Laggard Core Knowledge At Risk Core Advanced Innovative Knowledge Knowledge Knowledge CompetitorsCopyright Penspen © 2011 *Michael H. Zack, ‘Developing a Knowledge Strategy’, California Management Review, Vol. 41, No. 3, Spring, 1999, pp. 125-145
  • 17. Presentation Introduction Knowledge Management Pipeline Engineers and Engineering The Need for Education and Training The FutureCopyright Penspen © 2011
  • 18. The Oil Business is Wealthy This demand for energy means oil and gas are valuable and expensive commodities. The price of oil is steadily increasing: $US/barrel 100 2008: 80 Peak = $134 Average = $93 60 Low (Dec)= $32 40 USA Spot Price Averages 20 0 1995 1997 1999 2001 2003 2005 2007 2008 2009 2010 YearCopyright Penspen © 2011
  • 19. The Energy Future is Fossil Fuels World energy demand will grow by 36% between 2008 and 2035; Fossil fuels will remain the primary sources of energy, and account for over 50% of the increase in total primary energy demand. Global oil demand will rise from 84 million barrels of oil per day (mb/d) in 2009 to 99 mb/d in 2035. So... we will need pipelines for many years.Copyright Penspen © 2011 IEA Data, 2010
  • 20. Pipelines are Big Money.... There are about 3,500,000 km of high pressure oil and gas pipelines around the world. So what? Well... we must keep the oil and gas flowing. If we stop a pipeline... ouch.... Consider a big oil pipeline: 1,000,000 barrels of oil per day. Assume barrel of oil = $67: $50,000/minute, or $67,000,000/day, or $24,500,000,000/year...!Copyright Penspen © 2011
  • 21. The Need for Pipeline Engineers There is an increasing shortage of skilled staff in pipeline engineering. There is an increasing requirement to rapidly develop younger engineers. There is an increasing demand from society to demonstrate ‘competence’ in engineers: this is needed to ensure we have demonstrably good staff caring for our pipelines; and, sadly, pipeline failures will occur, and we need to show that our staff are demonstrably competent. The only way we can show – demonstrably – competence, is by an accredited, examined, course. Nothing less.Copyright Penspen © 2011
  • 22. Presentation Introduction Knowledge Management Pipeline Engineers and Engineering The Need for Education and Training The FutureCopyright Penspen © 2011
  • 23. Need for Training: Ageing Staff The oil and gas business has an ageing staff profile. The age profile for a modern, technology company would be: 25 high-tech companies, consultancies 20 percent 15 10 5 0 20 45 65Copyright Penspen © 2011
  • 24. Need for Training: Ageing Staff The oil and gas business has this age profile: 20 percent 15 10 5 0 20- 25- 30- 35- 40- 45- 50- 55- 60- 65+ 20- 25- 30- 35- 40- 45- 50- 55- 60- 65+ 24 29 34 39 44 49 54 59 64 age of staff We need to rapidly train our existing workforce to replace the ‘boomers’.Copyright Penspen © 2011
  • 25. Need for Training: Nationalisation This age profile is international. The Middle East/Asia will need rapid training to replace retiring expatriates with nationals: Nationals ? Expatriates Number of Staff 21 23 25 27 29 31 33 35 37 39 41 43 45 47 49 51 53 55 57 59 61 63 AgeCopyright Penspen © 2011
  • 26. Need for Training: Safety We are experiencing serious and deadly pipeline failures: These ‘needs’ give us a clear conclusion: we need rapid, accessible, international education and training programs.Copyright Penspen © 2011
  • 27. Goal of Training: Competence ■ This training must have a clear objective... ■ Pipeline staff must be ‘competent’. ■ A definition via UKOPA* is: ■ ‘A Competent Person should have practical and theoretical knowledge as well as sufficient experience of the particular machinery, plant or procedure involved to enable them to identify defects or weaknesses, and to assess their importance in relation to strengths and functions of the machinery’ ■ So, we need both: ■ practical (training, and on-job experience); and ■ theoretical ■ learning programmes for our engineers.Copyright Penspen © 2011 *www.ukopa.co.uk.

  • 28. Presentation Introduction Knowledge Management Pipeline Engineers and Engineering The Need for Education and Training The FutureCopyright Penspen © 2011
  • 29. Global Demand for Training/Teaching ■ Our experience is: ■ Staff/companies do not want long residential courses; this is not cost-driven: it is time-driven. ■ Staff want to learn at their own pace, and at work/home. ■ Companies want courses to be accredited. ■ The new (X, Y) generations in work today want to be educated in the same way as they communicate with their friends, book a hotel, and buy a pizza – via the internet. ■ On-line distance learning is the future.Copyright Penspen © 2011
  • 30. Training/Teaching: The Past? ■ Existing residential university courses, and residential industry training courses are both important and essential. ■ But these will not supply our needs in the short or long term, nor appeal to many of our younger, newer staff. ■ Time to change...Copyright Penspen © 2011
  • 31. Training/Teaching: The Future Flexible Distance Learning Learning On-line AccreditedCopyright Penspen © 2011
  • 32. Training/Teaching: The Future Home/Office Social 24/7 Learning Networks Phone, pc, tabletCopyright Penspen © 2011
  • 33. Training/Teaching: The Future Industry led Industry Industry financed Learning needs University deliveryCopyright Penspen © 2011
  • 34. The Start: Northumbria University ■ Penspen approached Northumbria University and enquired about partnering on a distance learning initiative for Master level courses in pipeline engineering.Copyright Penspen © 2011
  • 35.

  • 37. The Certificate: Launch ■ Certificate in Pipeline Integrity Management commences in 2011 at Northumbria University. ■ Penspen will initially supply all materials and lecturers.Copyright Penspen © 2011
  • 38. The Certificate: Registration and afterwards... ■ Students register at Northumbria. ■ When fees are paid, they will be registered, and Penspen will send them a welcome pack, and password to the distance learning website. ■ Student will take one Module at a time, and pay a fee for that Module. Student has Module for 13 weeks. A Help Desk will provide technical and IT support. The student will be examined at the end of the Module. Student then moves onto next Module.Copyright Penspen © 2011
  • 39. The Vision ■ Our vision is to supply a complete suite of learning programmes for the industry. ■ This Certificate is a pilot study. ■ Its success depends on our industry’s response to this pilot study. ■ Over to you….Copyright Penspen © 2011
