We currently have no scheduled session for this Instrumentation, Automation & Process Control Training Course. If you are interested in running this course, please contact our Training Department at info@petroknowledge.com


Why Choose this Training Course?

Custody Transfer defines the point at which ownership changes hands for the process product being measured. This transfer is unique among flow-meter applications since money changes hands and accuracy requirements are higher than they are for most other applications. The custody transfer system must generate detailed and indisputable cargo reports, based on accurate flow measurements and calculations.

In this intensive and highly practical PetroKnowledge training course, participants will gain sound and practical understanding and extend their knowledge of Custody Transfer and Flow Measurement systems, principles and types, and how to assess their impact on the strategic and tactical aspirations of the company.

This training course will highlight:

  • The laws governing fluids and gases
  • Important principles of flow-metering including accuracy and repeatability
  • Main types and applications of Flowmeters with emphasis on custody transfer
  • Flowmeter proving and calibration techniques
  • Custody transfer principles and applications

Training Objectives click here

What are the Goals?

This training course introduces participants to a variety of flow measurement technologies and systems that are used custody transfer applications, and gain an understanding about how measurement systems can work properly and accurately.

At the end of the training course, the participants will:

  • Have a sound understanding of relevant fluid and gas Laws that are needed for the use of flow measurement devices
  • Understand the main requirements of custody transfer systems
  • Appreciate the main requirements of flow measurements including accuracy and repeatability
  • Be knowledgeable about up-to-date flow measurement meters including differential pressure (DP) measurement, turbine meters, positive displacement meters, Coriolis flow measurement, Magnetic and ultrasonic flow measurement.
  • Gain the ability to determine if a metering system is adequate for the purpose, select appropriate custody transfer metering systems and identify potential problems
  • Learn about the principles and applications of Multiple meters/meter runs, Flow computers, Quality systems, Calibration, Meter Runs, Proving and Supporting Automation
