Oil and Gas Equipment Fundamentals

Our Equipment Fundamentals courses are designed to take the learner deeper into specific pieces of equipment.  Whereas Production 101 introduces the oilfield, Equipment Fundamentals focuses on the "What", "Why" and "How" of important or complex pieces of equipment.

For example:

  • What is a compressor?
  • Types of compressors: (Reciprocating Compressors, Centrifugal Compressors, Rotary Vane Compressors, Screw and Lobe Compressors, Liquid Ring Compressors)
  • Why do we use compressors for certain oilfield applications?
  • How does a compressor work? (The science of compression and support equipment)


Below is an example of other courses that would fit with Oil and Gas Equipment Fundamentals:
  • Pumps
  • Heat Exchangers
  • Filters
  • Indicators
  • Controllers
  • Measuring Equipment
  • Transmitters
  • Vessels
  • Valves
