Gas Control Conference

Course 8000    CEUs: 3.2 

This conference is for those responsible for the selection, application, and operation of
regulators in the natural gas industry

This 4-1/2 day conference demonstrates the fundamentals of natural gas regulators in gas pressure control. This course emphasizes natural gas distribution and also covers natural gas transmission. Students who complete this conference will be able to:
•  evaluate the difference between direct-operated and pilot-operated regulators
•  evaluate the different methods of overpressure protection
•  properly size regulators and relief valves for natural gas applications
•  troubleshoot a wide variety of regulator types (Fisher products are used for general
troubleshooting theory)


At least one year’s experience in the field of natural gas regulators is recommended.


• Self-Operated Regulator Fundamentals
• Pilot-Operated Regulator Fundamentals
•  Two-Path vs. Unloading Style Pilots
•  Regulator Sizing and Selection
• Overpressure Protection Methods
•  Monitor Methods and Sizing
• Sizing and Selection of Relief Valves
•  Pressure Factor Measurement
•  Troubleshooting Regulators
•  Failure Analysis
•  Recommended Installation Practices
•  Aerodynamic Noise Theory, Treatment Methods and Technologies
•  Regulator Olympics - 3 Troubleshooting Challenges*

Guest speakers from DOT-PHMSA Inspector Training and Qualifications (PHMSA TQ)  provide guidelines and lead discussions on various design, operating, and maintenance requirements (49CFR192) as they apply to natural gas regulators.
*The Regulator Olympics divides the class members into teams to participate in troubleshooting regulators—diagnosing district station problems, changing monitor modes, and working on commercial service regulators.
