Liquid & Gas Flow metering & Meter Proving Virtual

Course Overview:

Every process plant in the world takes in bulk raw materials and fuel from tanker ships, railroad cars, tanker trucks, or pipelines. Refineries, chemical plants, pharmaceutical companies, and a host of other industries, have to measure raw materials and finished products accurately, because they pay for what comes in and get paid for what goes out.

Oil and gas transactions are conducted globally, each and every day. The aim is to do this as accurately as possible. Although there are different methodologies available to the user, it is a known fact that an inaccurate device (or a device that presents a measurement that is less then precise), can cost either the buyer or the seller millions of dollars, due to reading discrepancies.

Course Objective:

By the end of this training participants will be able to:

  • Apply an in-depth knowledge to the topics of liquid and gas flow metering and custody measurement as well as to the fluid mechanics of pipe flows
  • Assess flow measurement uncertainty in terms of the actual flowrate
  • Distinguish between the different flowmeter types including delta p, displacement, rotary-inferential, fluid oscillatory, electromagnetic, ultrasonic and Coriolis mass flowmeters and to determine the optimum choice for a given application
  • Define and classify the various regimes of multiphase flow measurement and to understand the relative attributes of the main industrial multiphase flowmeters in the determination of flowrate and quality
  • Make a considered judgement of the choice of fluid level measurement devices
  • Understand the various types of flow calibration, metering system and provers including static and dynamic measurement, meter proving, prover loop and custody transfer
  • Carry out tank measurement and tank calibration methods and to calculate net sellable quantities
  • Explain in detail the different types, methods and techniques used in lease automatic custody transfer and truck custody transfer
  • Discuss pipeline considerations made in the metering of liquid products
  • Employ systematic techniques in leak detection, loss control, monitor and control production losses
  • Apply the various API standards applicable to custody measurement
