Chemical Engineering

Oil and Gas Field Operations Series program: Module 4

Introduction

Module Four of the Oil and Gas Field Operations Series program discusses the various measurements of hydrocarbon volume, level, temperature, and pressure. Basic instrumentation, computers, UPS and SCADA systems are also discussed in detail. Also covered are the topics of corrosion, lubrication, production accounting, economics, ESD systems, flow diagrams, mechanical drawings, electricity and finally a review of the safety aspects of working in the oil and gas industry


Objectives

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Explain oil and gas field measurements of volume, level, temperature, and pressure; including the instruments used for each
  • Describe the type and functions of basic control loops, including component parts and their functions
  • Illustrate computer use in process control and daily field activity
  • Demonstrate the changing of orifice plates under supervision, explain the measurement of hydrocarbons, and the instruments used in measurement and control
  • Explain the function of production accounting with an understanding of the importance of accurate record-keeping
  • Identify issues of loss control, hazardous area classification, air monitoring systems, and hydrocarbon storage
  • Explain the significance of corrosion and corrosion control, and lubrication and lubricants

Target Audience
