Instrumentation & Process

Instrumentation Engineering Practices for Facilities Personnel

Introduction

An exercise is developed throughout the session to illustrate the process of instrumentation selection and specification for a pressure vessel. The required documentation is identified and developed for incorporation in a BPCS (basic process control system). The exercise does not require formal instrument engineering training but prior field experience is very helpful. Through the use of individual and team problem solving you will learn about instrumentation on a vessel, developing required documentation, reviewing end devices, control valves, process control basics and discussing the various interfaces between facilities engineers, contractors, and maintenance personnel. Participants will gain a better understanding of the instrumentation process and what is important to this discipline.


Objectives

Upon completion of the Course, Participants will learn:

  • How to work through a project with a brief introduction to a three-phase (oil, gas, water) inlet separator, its design, operation, components, and controls
  • Basic principles of project management for instrumentation and control projects to include front-end loading, scope definition, brown-field vs. green-field projects, engineering deliverables, roles and responsibilities, project planning, risk analysis and management, cost estimating, procurement management, construction management, contractors and suppliers management
  • Front end engineering design (FEED) to include pre-feed, flow diagrams, P&IDs, material take-off, indices, plot plan, control system philosophy, I&C block diagrams, safety instrumented system (SIS) logic, specifications, cost estimates, and design approval
  • Final design activities that includes authorization for expenditure (AFE), indices, specifications, SIS design, distributed control system (DCSs), plot plans, power systems, installation details, wiring and connection diagrams, schematics, logic diagrams, cable and conduit schedules, electronic systems i/o indices, loop diagrams, bill of materials (BOM), and panel arrangements
  • The various requirements of construction and commissioning to include procurement requirements, construction requirements, QA and QC requirements, factory acceptance test (FAT), commissioning and startup requirements
  • Basic design criteria for selection of control valves (CVs), sizing of control valves, selection of flow measurement devices, sizing of orifice plates, selection of relief valves, selection of temperature devices, selection of level devices, selection of pressure measurement, selection of alarm and shutdown switches, instrument tag numbering, loop diagrams preparation, P&IDs, and SIS logic matrices

Target Audience
