Course Overview

What is the role of an instrumentation engineer in the oil and gas industry? Industrial instrumentation is used and practised to measure, control and inspect conditions including temperature, pressure and fluid levels in processing facilities, petrochemical plants, oil refineries, oil and gas pipelines, and distribution operations.

Usual and common applications of oil & gas instrumentation comprise monitoring the incidence and presence of flammable and combustible gases in storage and production areas and supervising emissions for pollution control. Instrumentation is also used for monitoring and regulating flow in delivery systems.

The oil and gas industries process a variety of risky and hazardous substances that can cause explosions or catastrophic events and endanger the safety of humans and the environment. Field instrumentation offers monitoring and control that is essential for ensuring compliance with safety and environmental regulations.

When integrated into automation systems, petrochemical processing equipment also assists manufacturers to increase their productivity and product consistency by delivering data regarding process efficiency and product quality.

Production procedures in the oil & gas industry are linked with process variables like pressure, temperature, level and flow. Process instrumentation permits plants to measure and control these variables in real-time, making their processes run effectively and allowing them to meet safety, environmental and quality objectives.

Through the accessibility of a huge number of sophisticated instruments has led to improved product quality, many issues still arise. Every device has its scope and range of measurement accuracy, precision, sensitivity and cost; hence, instrument engineers are frequently overwhelmed when choosing a particular technology for a specific application. An incorrect choice could lead to recurring malfunctions and failures of the instruments.

This course by Zoe Talent Solutions is designed to benefit the participants with practical up-to-date information on the three primary components of industrial instrumentation that are sensors, transducers and transmitters.

  1. Sensors: measure the physical properties of a solid, fluid or gas. In the oil and gas industry, sensors give the continuous measurement to detect and monitor gas and gas emissions
  2. Transducers: change and convert variations in temperature, pressure, flow or level into an electric signal that is then picked up by a transmitter
  3. Transmitters: function as an interface among sensors and measurement instrumentation such as level sensors, flow meters, and pressure sensors

This Zoe training course aims to explain the main characteristics, components and functions of the major instrument types used in the oil and gas industry.
