Metering & Custody Transfer Program
Course Description
Metering systems in the Oil & Gas industry have rapidly evolved in terms of sophistication, accuracy and reliability; countless factors have to be taken into account in the design of a metering system, requiring multi-disciplinary specialists with very specific experience and knowledge. The very large amounts of money involved in Custody Transfer of Oil and Gas brings the need for auditable custody transfer, metering and allocation systems which are critical to both sellers and buyers to build trust. This course was developed to create an understanding of custody transfer measurements for personnel involved in hydrocarbon transfer. It provides more insight on custody transfer metering operations. It elaborates all about crude oil fluid flow, flow measuring, metering system, oil transfer meter, types of flow measuring devices, and a lot of other custody transfer operations. This course is developed for engineers and technicians who need to have a practical knowledge of selection, installation and commissioning of fiscal metering equipment. It is for those primarily involved in achieving effective results in industrial processes. This would involve the design, specification and implementation of control and measurement equipment.
The Training Course Will Highlight ?

The course focuses on practical applications, with special attention to installation considerations and application limitations when selecting or installing different measurement or control instruments for fiscal metering.
