Custody Transfer Flow Metering

Source: 11/11/2015, Location: Europe

A recent webinar on custody transfer, supported by the UK’s National Measurement System, demonstrated the challenges and ongoing technological developments to improve the accuracy of the single phase measurement systems used to support the transfer of hydrocarbon ownership from one company to another.

For oil & gas operators, flow meters are their cash registers- they tell them how much money they are making from the hydrocarbons produced. It is essential that these meters are as accurate as possible as a mis-measurement of the order of 0.1 per cent can cost an operator many millions of dollars over a relatively short period of time.

UK national legislation requires uncertainties of 0.25 per cent for liquid and 1 per cent for gas, as set out in the Oil & Gas Authority’s Guidance Notes for Petroleum Measurement. But with the development of measurement technologies and the advancement in electronics and computing power, industry should be constantly striving to reduce measurement uncertainty wherever possible. This is particularly pertinent in the oil & gas industry where the combined value of oil and gas metered globally on a daily basis totals $17 billion. Any improvements, be they evolutionary or revolutionary, will have a huge impact on reducing financial exposure because of the vast quantities involved.
