Last month, Gaubert Oil hosted a two-day class on oil analysis in preparation for the STLE OMA-1 Certification exam. Local maintenance and reliability professionals from companies such as DOW Chemical, Cornerstone Chemical, Energy XXI, LSR, Westlake Chemical, BP, Chevron, Axis Compressor, and Oil Filtration Systems were in attendance. Michael Holloway of ALS Tribology was the instructor of the course and shared his experience and expert knowledge on the subject of lubrication and oil analysis with the group.
Following the course, several of the class participants opted to sit for the Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers (STLE) OMA-1 Certification Exam. The exam covered topics such as oil sampling, application/testing methods, data interpretation, troubleshooting, and lubrication fundamentals.
Gaubert Oil Company is proud to announce that the following employees have earned their OMA-1 Certification:
- Louis Leblanc

- Randy Breaud

With the addition of these certificate holders, Gaubert Oil now has more OMA-1 Certified personnel than any other organization in the state of Louisiana. Congratulations gentlemen.
