|Instrumentation, Controls and Electrical Systems Overview for Non-Electrical Engineers - ICE-21|
Discipline: Instrumentation, Controls & Electrical
Duration: 5 days
Instructor(s): Michael Bayer, Rodney Jacobs, Jason Pingenot
This course provides an introduction and overview of electrical systems, instrumentation, process control, and control/safety systems typically encountered in oil and gas facilities. The focus is to understand terminology, concepts, typical equipment configurations, and common pitfalls in order to improve communication with electrical and I&C professionals. This course covers similar content to our E3 and IC3 courses, but at a more conceptual level. This course is not a prerequisite for taking E3 or IC3, but rather a replacement for those that are not able to take both E3 and IC3.
For the virtual sessions, course hours will be 08:00-12:00 Central US time (GMT-5), Monday-Friday over two weeks.
"Before this course, I hated anything related to electricity, but the instructor managed to put it in a simple way that made me change my perspective about it. He is so knowledgeable which helped us understand difficult subjects easily." - Operations Engineer, Saudi Arabia
"The problems and the overall course documentation were both very good." - Facilities Engineer, United States
"I certainly feel more equipped to discuss instrumentation and controls than before." - Participant
Process, chemical, and mechanical engineers, (i.e. non-instrumentation and non-electrical disciplines), as well as other technical and non-technical professionals with little or no background in IC&E systems. Electrical and Instrumentation Engineers should consider E3 and IC3 for more in-depth coverage.
You Will Learn:
DR. RODNEY JACOBS is recognized as a worldwide leader in the field of Instrumentation, Automation and Process Control. He has been involved in instrumentation for the last 35 years, and has presented a great deal of workshops in many countries around the world (with most of them being in countries that have an interest in the oil and gas industries). Apart from in-house and public workshops, he has also presented hundreds of internet-based (e-learning) sessions, primarily related to process control and safety. His main area of focus includes PLCs, SCADA, DCS, loop tuning, instrumentation and other areas related to the control of processes. Although his primary focus has always been instrumentation, he does have qualifications in electrical heavy current aspects, and has lectured this at university level. In addition to presenting international seminars, he is also actively involved as a consulting engineer, in his area of expertise. He is a past recipient of the N&Z award, which is one of the highest awards, in the field of instrumentation, in South Africa. Apart from a Doctorate in Electrical Engineering, Light Current, he also has an Honors degree in Psychology, and is internationally certified in training and assessment.
MR. JASON PINGENOT has worked in the oil and gas industry since 1994 with broad and deep expertise in automation and power system planning, design, engineering, system integration, management, electrical safety, commissioning, and operations for a wide range of oil and gas facilities including production facilities, gathering systems, compressor stations, processing plants, metering facilities, and loading stations for projects worldwide. In his career he has served the industry as a drafting instructor and engineering consultant, and led the IC&E central engineering group at Encana Oil & Gas (USA) to execute capital projects and develop technical and safety standards. Recently, Mr. Pingenot was an owner, Vice President of Engineering and IC&E Manager at a mid-sized consulting firm, GWD Design & Engineering based in Denver, Colorado. STV Energy Services has since acquired GWD Engineering and Mr. Pingenot continues to perform a similar function as IC&E Engineering Chief and Senior Associate. In 2012 Mr. Pingenot joined PetroSkills | John M. Campbell and now functions as an instructor, consultant, content developer, and discipline manager for the IC&E discipline. Mr. Pingenot is a registered professional engineer in the states of Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, North Dakota, Wyoming, Texas, and Oklahoma. He has a bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering (with Special Honors) from the University of Colorado.
