Emerson’s Marc Buttler discussed the verification process for Coriolis flow meters using methods such as master meters, proving, lab calibration and secondary verification diagnostics at the Emerson Exchange Americas Virtual Series.
Reducing Fiscal Metering System Flow Metering Uncertainty
Emerson’s Karl Stappert presents Smart Meters and Prover Technology Advancements Reduce Uncertainty at the Emerson Exchange Americas Virtual Series.
Calibrating Fiscal Transfer Measurements with Master Meter Provers
Accuracy of fiscal transfer measurement is of great importance as even a small error in measurement can lead to a large financial difference. Provers ensure a fiscal transfer system is providing the most accurate measurement possible. They provide a stationary or mobile means to facilitate calibration of flow meters before, during or after a transfer.
Natural Gas Flowmeter Selection
Flow measurement is critical in fiscal measurement applications from custody transfer to allocations between parties. The choice of technologies is broad and dependent on the fluid being measured and properties of the application. In an Applied Automation article,...
Managing Oil and Gas Produced Fluids
Managing produced fluids in the age of shale oil and gas production has opened up some new challenges compared with the days of traditional reservoir production. I caught up with Emerson's Michael Machuca. He noted that while global oil prices were high, shale...
Remote Expertise for Metering and Allocation Management
In today's Wall Street Journal article, U.S. Oil Prices Fall Below $50 a Barrel, it chronicles the continuing decline in oil prices over the past 6 months. This increases the pressure on oil & gas producers to find ways to reduce production costs and optimize...
LACT Units versus Tank Gauging for Custody Transfer at Well Pads
Author: Rossella Mimmi The economic impact of custody transfer in the oil and gas industry is huge. Transferred fluids are expensive, so producers, carriers and end users want to make sure that quantity and quality are measured very precisely. Also, as taxes and...
Reliable Fiscal Metering at Highly Complex Reliance Refinery
Author: Khadra Helminski Emerson's Trilochan Gupta shared a case study with the readers of Hydrocarbon Processing magazine. The article, Major refinery uses reliable fiscal metering system, describes how Reliance refinery, the world's largest refinery located in...
Upstream and Midstream Natural Gas Custody Transfer Metering
There is lots of excitement just east of us here in Austin for the 2014 Offshore Technology Conference (OTC2014) in Houston, Texas. One of the innovations being highlighted is Emerson's Rosemount Analytical 370XA gas chromatograph for natural gas measurement analysis...
Plant Metering and Competency
Metering imports, exports, and allocations is a serious matter for plants. If the metering systems in your plant under-measure custody transfer of intermediates and final products to another business, profits are lost. Over-measure and your business shortchanges your...
Flow Measurement Accuracy Impact on Profitability
A common theme found in my 2008-blog posts was energy efficiency. Given the state of the global economy, 2009 posts will likely have a common theme on ways to improve profitability through cost savings and productivity increases. Just before the holidays, my email spy...
