Oil and Gas Electrical Course

Looking for an oil and gas electrical course?

Historically, oil and gas control products have been powered by mechanical and pneumatic means.

More recently, however, many oil and gas producers are considering the use of electric power for their production sites. And a growing number have seen valve automation prove to be a productive investment.

The advantages of using electric power are significant, and include:

  • increased efficiency
  • decreased potential for hazardous situations
  • remote monitoring and communication for production equipment and instrumentation  
  • decreased emissions

In this Oil and Gas Electrical Course, Kimray Product Manager (and licensed electrician) Alex Crow introduces you to some basic electricity concepts—from how it is generated to common terms like amperage, volts, current and AC/DC.

The goal of this session is to get you feeling more comfortable with discussing and working with electric products in the field.
