Here in the US, we read many stories of oil tanks being filled to the brim with increased production from shale sources and federal law barring export. Whether in the US or anywhere across the globe, managing and reporting on the levels in these tanks require accurate measurement. Also, given the importance of these measurements […]

Author: Khadra Helminski The article, Reducing Measurement Uncertainty, puts the current liquefied natural gas (LNG) trade in perspective as we look at dynamic (flow metering) and static (tank level) measurement methods of LNG and the technologies used for LNG bulk transfers. We discuss the reasons behind the demand for dynamic and more accurate measurement of […]

In an earlier post, Avoiding Dangerous Conditions through Tank Floating Roof Level Monitoring, we highlighted how technology can assist in providing early warning for abnormal situations such as roof tilt in tank farms. I received an email question: …so when the roof moves, the radar moves with it. How do you measure the level? If […]

For oil & gas, chemical, petrochemical, and pharmaceutical producers, measuring levels in tanks is an important component for inventory management. I saw a write up by Emerson’s Kevin Cullen that describes how level measurement is not only important for inventory management, but also for overspill protection—where hazardous or environmentally damaging liquids are involved. Kevin notes […]
