PETEX will be hosting courses at Endress+Hauser’s Houston campus and will use the manufacturers’ PTU, the same PTU where Endress+Hauser’s authorized sales and service representative, Vector Controls & Automation Group, hosts Vector University classes for customers in the Gulf region.

Along with our partner Vector Controls & Automation Group, we are excited to collaborate with such a prestigious organization as PETEX and deliver a combined complimentary basket of training classes to customers in the Gulf region,” said Jerry Spindler, Customer Training Manager, Endress+Hauser.

Our common goal of advancing the skills of the workforce in the Oil & Gas industry aligns well with the investments by both organizations in facilities and training equipment such as the PTU. Workers in the industry now have a world-class location where they can continue their technical education.

The PTUs are full-scale, working process skids with functional instrumentation and controls, closely simulating a real-world environment. Trainees gain hands-on experience with the types of configurations, operation, diagnostics, and troubleshooting found in actual process plants and facilities.

This specific PTU features working gas and liquid systems and is equipped with more than 200 modern Endress+Hauser devices, along with a variety of the latest instrument configurations, communication protocols, and software.

Roger T. Bonnecaze, Interim Dean of the Cockrell School of Engineering, noted:

For over 75 years PETEX has been providing talent development resources and courses for the global oil & gas sector. In Houston and Odessa, that has traditionally been at the PETEX training centers. With the significant investment that Endress+Hauser and Vector have made in the Houston facility to build one of their renowned PTU’s and create world-class classroom space, it made complete sense for PETEX to collaborate with them to bring those resources to our learners also. The PTU complements the hands-on programs already in place and allows us to collaboratively expand our offerings to continue to meet the ongoing training needs of the oil and gas sector while also embracing new technologies and energy transition topics.”
