THE COURSE:

There is an ongoing need for Electrical and Instrumentation (E&I) technicians, technologists and engineers in the oil and gas industry. This is due to an increasing need for higher technology methods of obtaining and processing oil and gas as it is a finite declining resource. The price of oil is heading upwards steadily, thus making personnel and their associated oil and gas expertise in these industries even more valuable. The technical challenges of extracting oil and gas are becoming ever more demanding, with increasing emphasis on more marginal fields and previously inaccessible zones such as deep oceans, Polar regions, Falkland Islands and Greenland. The aim for this program is to provide you with core E&I engineering skills to enhance your career, and to benefit your firm.

This course provides a whole spectrum of activities ranging from basic E&I engineering through to advanced practice in hazardous areas and data communications. It will look in depth at a vast array of E&I equipment used in an oil and gas environment as well as examples of practical treatment of electrical power systems and instrumentation within the oil, gas, petrochemical and offshore industries. Whilst there is some theory included, it is used in a practical context, giving you the necessary tools to ensure that the E&I hardware is delivering the results intended. No matter whether you are a new electrical, instrumentation or control technician/technologist/graduate engineer or a practising facilities engineer, you will find this course beneficial in improving your understanding, skills and knowledge.

 

YOU WILL GAIN:

  • Skills and competencies in E&I oil and gas engineering
  • Knowledge of the latest technologies in E&I oil and gas engineering
  • Key techniques in operating your facility to the highest level of safety and in protecting the environment
  • Decades of real experience distilled into the course presentations and materials
  • Guidance from real E&I oil and gas experts in the field
  • Hands-on, practical knowledge from the extensive experience of instructors, rather than the theoretical information from books and colleges
  • Networking contacts in the oil and gas industry

 

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

This course is ideal for those seeking expertise in the oil and gas industry, including:

  • Recent graduate electrical, instrumentation or mechanical engineers
  • Chemical engineers
  • Electrical engineers
  • Experienced electricians
  • Fire and gas engineers
  • Instrument and control systems engineers
  • Instrument and process control technicians or technologists
  • Instrument fitters
  • Mechanical engineers

 

COURSE OUTLINE

This is an intensive online course. The course is split up in to two sections – Live sessions and recorded lectures. All 8 hours will be provided upon course completion for review.
