This 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 course is
applicable to field production facilities, pipelines, gas plants, and offshore systems.
It is designed for managers, engineers, technicians and system operators requiring a broad
understanding of instrumentation, control, and electrical systems in oil and gas facilities.
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 a parameter measure 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
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
Key electrical power considerations and fundamentals applied in oil and gas facilities.
Electric power distribution, systems loads, internal grid layout, major distribution equipment and
Process systems operations and the key characteristics, and measurement needs, as well as
techniques to measure and control
Electrical system safety.
Interrelationships between process, equipment, instruments and controls.
Control modes and their applications, communications requirements, and the operator and
computer controller interface
Power users definition and integration into the power distribution system
Voltage levels and power type (3-phase, single-phase, and direct current) selection and
Field (facility) control and monitoring systems such as pressure and level indicators and
System-wide considerations including communications, local control, remote control, and data
