Module 1: Introduction and Overview • Liquid and gas custody transfer metering systems
Module 2: Flow Meters • Review of the meters used in custody transfer measurement
Module 3: Meter Provers • Description of the methods used to calibrate the metering systems in-situ
Module 4: Density Measurement • Gas and liquid density measurement in custody transfer system
Module 5: Crude Oil Sampling • Methods of acquiring representative oil samples for analysis
Module 6: Secondary Instrumentation • Other measurements required in custody transfer ﬂ ow measurement
Module 7: Flow Computers • The computers used to manage the ﬂ ow measurement data
A transaction involving physical transfer of oil and gas from one operator to another is known as Custody Transfer. Accurate metering of the ﬂ uids being transferred between the two is therefore of vital importance. To ensure this happens, most countries set stringent uncertainty targets that have to be met by companies operating in their jurisdiction. To do this to the required accuracy requires a metering system, consisting of a range of components as well as the ﬂ ow meter itself.
The type of components required include:
• temperature probes and transmitters
• Static pressure transmitters
• diff erential pressure transmitters
• Meter provers
• Gas chromatographs
• Sampling systems
• Flow meters
• Flow computers
This course covers each of these components, how they work individually and how they ﬁ t into the measuring system as a whole. The course is ideal for metering engineers who wish to gain a knowledge of how ﬂ uids are metered in the oil and gas sector.
Anyone who is new to ﬂ ow measurement both in a technical and non-technical capacity including technicians, engineers, sales people, administrators and managers. The course is intensive but will make an effective use of delegates’ time.
The course is delivered regularly at various international locations, but is also available as an in-company (private) course. It includes comprehensive course notes which will form useful reference material in the future.
