Module 1: Introduction and Standards • ISO 5167, AGA8, ISO6976 and API • Background and application of each
Module 2: ISO 5167 Flow Calculations • Oriﬁ ce plate and DP • Corrections required
Module 3: API & IP Liquid Calculations • Temperature and pressure corrections • Density and k/meter factor
Module 4: Sources of error
Accurate measurement of produced hydrocarbons has always been a very high priority for oil and gas operating companies. To satisfy this requirement, stringent requirements are set for the various calculations that are adopted to deﬁne the quantity and quality of the ﬂuids being measured.
These calculations vary in their complexity and cover physical properties, thermodynamics and ﬂow rate of the ﬂuids being measured.
There are numerous standards which deﬁ ne these parameters and this course explains the commonly used equations and standards by detailing the source of the calculations, the parameters used, the required inputs/ outputs, their effect on the uncertainty of measurement and the common sources of errors.
This course provides for the delegates an introduction into the importance of and the requirements for the calculations and standards applied on oriﬁce gas metering systems and liquid turbine metering systems.
The course covers;
• Appropriate ISO, AGA and API standards
• Their background and application
• Gas calculations including corrections
• Liquid calculations including corrections
• Sources of error
Delegates who require a basic understanding of measurement system calculations, their role and eff ect in the measurement process, such as Metering Technicians & Engineers, Research and Development Engineers, Instrumentation Engineers, Quality Managers, Technical Managers, Metering System Designers. The course is intensive, to make eff ective 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. Enquiries about course dates and delegate fees can be made by emailing or by telephoning the Events Team on +44 (0) 1355 593704.
