This 5-day course provides an overview of electrical power generation and distribution, process and safety systems instrumentation, and control strategies and configurations. The focus is on application and integration into the process and control of upstream and midstream oil and gas facilities. The material of the course is applicable to field production facilities, pipelines, gas plants, and offshore systems.

Managers, engineers, technicians and system operators requiring a broad understanding of instrumentation, control, and electrical systems in oil and gas facilities.

You will Learn:

  • Defining fundamentals parameters for electrical power usage and generation such as voltage levels, self-generate versus purchased power, and basic electrical power management .
  • Developing electrical power demand (load) lists, one-line diagrams, and the selecting and integrating power distribution systems.
  • Identifying electrical power users (for the load list) then evaluating the equipment demand on the power system (such as intermittent or continuous service, and motor starting loads).
  • Using safe practices such as hazardous area definition and circuit protection.
  • Defining what to measure, why measure a parameter and how to measure.
  • Determining and using the many control strategies, equipment and computer systems common to an oil and gas facility.
  • Identifying equipment and instrument characteristics and using appropriate instrumentation and controls.
  • Defining and integrating components into systems that monitor and locally control the process (and related equipment), safety systems, and the communications and remote control systems use.

Course Content:

  • Key electrical power considerations and fundamentals applied in oil and gas facilities.
  • Voltage levels and power type (3-phase, single-phase, and direct current) selection and application.
  • Purchased power considerations including generation efficiency, redundant sources, transmission grid parameters, and cost considerations.
  • Electric power distribution, systems loads, internal grid layout, major distribution equipment and cabling.
  • Power users definition and integration into the power distribution system.
  • Electrical system safety.
  • Process systems operations and the key characteristics, and measurement needs, as well astechniques to measure and control.
  • Control modes and their applications, communications requirements, and the operator andcomputer controller interface.
  • Interrelationships between process, equipment, instruments and controls.
  • Field (facility) control and monitoring systems such as pressure and level indicators and controllers.
  • Field (facility) safety monitoring and response systems including SIS, HIPPS and emergency shutdown valves.
  • System-wide considerations including communications, local control, remote control, and data management and use.
