Description

Accurate flow measurement is essential to today's oil & gas operations. Our fiscal metering and process control training aims to provide training to facility operators, technicians and engineers where once delivered, "keep on working". Delegates are encouraged to raise queries both during and at any time after attending the seminar. Delegates are also encouraged to bring with them any issues that they may have to the seminar. High quality multi-media is used to supplement traditional methods throughout the presentation, (based on our interactive training software) which has proven to be more useful in explaining and understanding the topic than actually seeing a system in operation.

Course Objectives

At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the legal and commercial metering requirements
  • Appreciate design criteria and importance of accuracy
  • Understand measurement concepts and types of error
  • Understand the basic concepts, principle of operation and equipment used for gas metering, liquid metering, proving and sampling
  • Understand the basic concepts, principle of operation and hardware used for typical flow computers, prover control micro-computers and supervisory systems
  • Understand the typical operations, control functions and record keeping requirements
  • Evaluate the results of turbine meter calibration and determine the validity by use of control chart
