Why Choose this Training Course? 

Measurement and testing must be done before oil and gas production can be sold to ensure the production is suitable for market and verify the volumes being sold. As the recent problem with the quality of oil in the pipeline has stopped the shipments for almost two weeks from one of the large oil producers, the importance of measurement and testing cannot be overstressed.

There are two methods which are widely used, and those are: Static Measuring (Gauging System) and Dynamic Measuring (Metering System).

Automatic measuring is used in reservoirs with levels which are constantly changing, as well as the systems for loss prevention and control, where the use of systems for automatic measuring is required, as its level of accuracy must be much higher that the accuracy achieved during manual measurement.

This PetroKnowledge training course will highlight:
