The LyondellBasell Center for Petrochemical, Energy, & Technology at San Jacinto College recently partnered with Opgal to offer optical gas imaging certification training. 

"At San Jac, we pride ourselves on utilizing cutting-edge technology and working with industry to meet their needs," said Jay Culver, CPET director of incumbent training. "Through this training, we can achieve those goals and strengthen community partnerships." 

OGI cameras are advanced devices designed to detect and visualize gas leaks otherwise invisible to the naked eye. They are used in industrial safety and inspection to find dangerous gas leaks and intervene quickly and efficiently. 

Using OGI to detect gas leaks is now officially recognized by the US Environmental Protection Agency as an effective and vital tool to inspect industrial sites. This means OGI has become essential to the sector for the maintenance plans of sites requiring regular or constant monitoring. 

Opgal's EyeCGas Multi is the world's most sensitive OGI camera. It detects leaks as small as .35 grams of methane per hour and has the widest EPA Appendix K envelope of performance. 

OGI Certification Training 

"We combine a very detailed training platform on how to properly use the OGI camera with a regulatory course on how to comply with the latest rules that drive its use," said Matthew Gobert, Opgal instructor. “CPET's state-of-the-art training facility is truly one of a kind, not only for classroom training but for the outdoor industrial site that allows you to conduct field training in a controlled environment safely." 

The CPET facility houses degree programs in process technology, instrumentation, electrical, inspection technology, and environmental health and safety. The building's 35 labs and the 8,000-square-foot exterior glycol process unit are all utilized for degree programs and incumbent worker training based on the industry's needs and desires. 

What to expect: 

  • In-depth classroom sessions led by experienced industry experts 
  • Hands-on field training with real-world scenarios
  • Learning about the latest advancements in optical gas imaging
  • Networking with peers and professionals in the field 

At the end of the training participants receive an official certificate from San Jacinto College.
