Introduction

Measurements are essential in any process requiring quantification. Understanding, monitoring and controlling flow rate, as part of industrial processes, are essential to the viable operation of production systems.

At various points in its journey from production to consumption, liquids or gases will be measured, typically by flow metering, for both fiscal and operational control purposes. The flow meter is the cash register for your business or the billing mechanism and it needs to be accurate.

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.

This masterclass aims to provide important understanding on metering & allocation through 5 unique courses to help professionals to carry out jobs with superior capability and confidence that lead to positive business performance. Learning stage and need of each professional might be different, thus this programme is designed to give flexibility where delegate is able to choose to attend single course, combination of courses or complete masterclass (5-in-1).

This masterclass is brought to you by Semarak Training in partnership with the world’s foremost authority on flow measurement technology, TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory (TÜV SÜD NEL).

Course Information

*Click course title below to view more details.

Flow measurement is vital to many industrial sectors: water supply, oil extraction, gas distribution, and much of the process and pharmaceutical industry depend on flow measurement for quality control and custody transfer. To obtain the required level of accuracy at an appropriate price, it is crucial that the right meter is selected for the application and that it is appropriately used. However, the flow meter user is faced with a bewildering array of technologies and conflicting claims from manufacturers.

Objective

This course enables delegates to understand the issues surrounding flow measurement. It also provides the delegate with an unbiased view of the various technologies available and the basic knowledge required to make informed choices. Key aspects of flow measurement, all general meter types and their applications will be discussed and explained.

Measurement is fundamental to the control of quality, efficiency and safety. This one day course is designed to impart a basic understanding of measurement uncertainty. Delegates will learn about the impact of uncertainty in industry, to identify important sources of uncertainty in measurement systems and receive practical guidance on the design of measurement techniques to minimize uncertainty.

Objective

This course will introduce delegates to the techniques required to identify what affects measurements and by how much. By ranking the effects, delegates will be able to guard against invalid conclusions and ensure that the key measurements are targeted for investment in new instrumentation.

The course is designed to impart a basic understanding of measurement uncertainty. Delegates will learn the appreciation of the impact of measurement uncertainty within the industry, to identify the important sources of uncertainty in measurement systems and receive practical guidance on the design of measurement techniques for improved uncertainty.

A transaction involving physical transfer of oil and gas from one operator to another is known as Custody Transfer. Accurate metering of the fluids being transferred between the two is therefore of vital importance. This one day training course will enable metering engineers to gain a knowledge of how fluids are metered in the oil and gas sector.

Objective

    • Understand the requirement for Custody Transfer Measurement.
    • Basic sizing techniques.
    • Select the optimum meter type.
    • Appreciate the various standards and regulations applied.

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. There are numerous standards which define these parameters and this half day course explains the commonly used equations and standards by detailing the source of the calculations, the parameters used, the required inputs/outputs and their effect on the uncertainty of measurement.

Objective

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

Who Should Attend?

Delegates who require a basic understanding of measurement system calculations, their role and Effect in the measurement process, such as Metering Technicians & Engineers, Research and Development Engineers, Instrumentation Engineers, Quality Managers, Technical Managers, Metering System Designers.

In Oil and Gas production environments, it is often necessary for operating companies to share production and transportation facilities. It is therefore important that the hydrocarbons entering such facilities are equita- bly allocated between the companies contributing to the system. The process of dividing the produced hydro- carbons, ensuring that each operator gets their allotted share is known as hydrocarbon allocation. This one day course is designed to describe the development of an allocation system and explain the different types of allocation calculations that are commonly applied.

Objective

The course will cover:

    • What is Hydrocarbon Allocation?
    • Design and development of an allocation system
    • Functions of an allocation system
