Custody Transfer, Allocation Metering and Analysis

Dubai, UAE,
9 – 13 July 2017

Custody Transfer, Allocation Metering and Analysis

Custody Transfer, also known as Fiscal Metering, occurs when fluids and gases are exchanged between parties. Payment is usually made as a function of the amount of fluid or gas transferred, so accuracy is important since a small mistake in measurement can add up, leading to financial exposure in custody transfer transactions.

In recent years this importance has grown, not only because of its widespread use for accounting purposes due to escalation in material values but also because of its application in several other aspects of upstream and pipeline operation such as sampling, analysis and loss/gain balance. All of these applications constitute key elements for the operator who wants to maximize pipeline efficiency and requires a very strict correlation with accurate and reliable flow measurement.

Errors in measurement for custody transfer are very expensive, which is why this is regulated in most countries and involving government taxation and contractual agreements between parties.

This programme will introduce to the participants all essential knowledge and best practice on the various kinds of flow metering systems, the flow measurement principles, measurement methods for a well-rounded short education throughout the 5-day event.

The course will be led by world class Professional Trainer and Consultant, Dirk Horst, who has more than 36 years’ of Professional Experience in Instrumentation & Process Analyzer Systems and CT Metering.

The course will include intensive 5-days’ learning, comprehensive 17 Modules, many Exercises and Case Studies!
