Vibration and noise issues are very prevalent in the oil and gas industry. Recently, work was halted for many days due to bad vibrations in the world’s largest floating platform used in the production of natural gas. The machines and equipment used for oil and gas production including transformers, engines, motors, generators, pumps, drill rigs, and piping generate very high levels of noise and vibrations that can cause downtime, occupational injuries, and noise induced hearing loss to workers. It is important to identify and solve these problems early by reducing the sources and paths of noise and vibration instead of afterthought band‐aid type solutions or reliance on the use of hearing protection to protect the occupants. There have been many modern computational and experimental tools and techniques developed in the past two decades by the automotive and aerospace industries to solve a variety of noise and vibration problems. This presentation will highlight some of these tools and their applications to issues faced by the petroleum industry. Some case studies and examples using modal analysis, order tracking, noise path analysis, nearfield acoustic holography, finite element, and boundary element computational tools will be presented.
