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, Selecting flowmeters for natural gas, Emerson’s Dan Hackett describes the need for different flow measurement technologies across […]

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 royalties are calculated on these values, measurement accuracy and reproducibility are important. […]

Flow measurement systems require ongoing attention, especially in critical applications such as fiscal measurement and custody transfer. In a Scandinavian Oil-Gas magazine article, Sustaining Quality Flow Measurement in Critical Applications, Emerson’s Jason Laidlaw explains the need for good measurement repeatability and low uncertainty for oil & gas producers to meet their engineering assessment, review, and […]
