  • Training Dates: June 7-10, 2022

This course is designed to train and upgrade the knowledge of the participants on the most recent technology of oil and gas measurement, that can enable them to perform appropriate selection of the flow meters, maintain the meters performance through verification and recalibration, and carry out the necessary calculations of meters certainty thus ensure a high quality of measurements that leads to most effective production measurements, highest revenue, and best process and equipment control.

Learning Objectives

Learn about the types of the oil and gas measurements, to determine the characteristics and requirements and the level of accuracy for each of these types of measurements

Grasp flow measurement of different types of hydrocarbons, oil and gas, to apply the different correction factors on the meter indicated volume to calculate and report the actual standard volumes

Understand the parameters that characterize the performance of the flow meters like accuracy, repeatability, rangeability, and linearity, using statistical methods to calculate the precision and the total meter accuracy, to enable operating the meter within its limitation and assure the highest measurement quality

Be updated with latest technology pertaining different types of oil and gas flow meters, including the design, the principle of operation, the performance characteristics, the installation requirements and the failure and troubleshooting, to be equipped with the knowledge and skills for appropriate selection, operation and maintenance of the flow meters

Appreciate different meters’ provers and standards, to decide and operate the appropriate prover and standard for verification and calibration of flow meters

Learn how to perform the proving and calibration processes, practice the calibration data processing, correct for systematic error, calculate the random error, and establish the total calibration curve, to deduce the MF, rangeability and nonlinearity out of the calibration curve

Master the characteristics of different meters and flow measurements, and the potential performance deterioration of meters to decide on the frequency and schedule of meters proofing and recalibration

Course Methodology

Besides learning from presentation and interaction with the expert trainer, you will have the opportunity to work on Case Study: The impact of the meter’s accuracy on the revenue values; and the following Exercises:
  • Calculation of the allocation measurement and the mass balance
  • Calculation of the gas mixture properties and the compressibility factor
  • Calculation of the discharge coefficient and mass flow rate for standard orifice meter using practical equation
  • Establishing the meter calibration curve, meter factor, rangeability, and meter total accuracy
  • Selection of the appropriate flow meter (meter’s specifications)

Pre-Course Questionnaire

The class size will be kept small to ensure interaction and learning results. A precourse questionnaire will be sent to you through which you can raise your specific areas of interest. The Expert Trainer will review in advance and analyse them during the course, seeking to satisfy your learning needs.

Tests & E-Certificate

A pre-test, as well as a post-test, will be carried out, and all participants are encouraged to take. E-Certificate will be awarded to all participants, provided attending all sessions and fulfilling the course duties.

This Certificate of Attendance, bearing the signatures from the Expert Trainer and the Organizer, will testify to your endeavour and serve towards your professional advancement.
