Description

This course is focused on basic electrical engineering concepts in the oil and industry.  It is designed to promote integration of engineering disciplines in the oil and gas industry and to introduce electrical engineering concepts to oil and gas practitioners.  It will familiarize you with the electrical single line diagram and area classification concepts.  You will gain practical understanding of grounding and grounding issues.  You will study basic electrical engineering design concepts such as fault calculations and protective equipment coordination.  The application of relevant sections of the Canadian Electrical Code will be emphasized.  You will learn how to identify possible areas of vulnerability in your electrical system, how to mitigate the risks to your electrical systems and how to improve the bottom line of your business.

Objective

In this two day course, participants will learn about electrical engineering concepts which are specific to the oil and gas industry. 

Participants will specifically:
   • Understand and apply electrical code requirements specific to the oil and gas industry.
   • Increase understanding of electrical engineering design principles and how they impact equipment selection.
   • Become aware of electrical engineering design concepts such as fault studies, equipment protection and protective system coordination.
   • Upgrade understanding of requirements for hazardous locations in the code.
   • Apply risk management techniques to identify possible areas of vulnerability to your electrical systems.
   • Learn how to manage maintenance dollars spent on electrical systems more effectively and how to identify power cost savings.

Who Should Attend

This course is intended for non-electrical engineers involved in the oil and gas industry as well as electrical engineers with no prior experience in the oil and gas industry.  It will benefit plant, project and facility engineers as well as sales engineers involved with electrical equipment and the oil and gas industry. 

Faculty: Ajit Bapat, P.Eng., M.Eng., MBA

The course was very well presented and the course instructor was absolutely amazing.
Reviewed by 2013
Our instructor, Stephen Lamming, was outstanding and a true expert in his field. He was able to complement the technical air monitoring information with practical real life examples which was highly beneficial. He is an excellent communicator and was highly interactive with the course attendees. This course was recommended to me because Stephen Lamming does an outstanding job. I was very impressed with this course and have subsequently recommended it to my colleagues.
