This presentation will focus on a variety of flow metering technologies including: orifice plates, wedge meters, cone meters, coriolis meters, vortex meters, magnetic flow meters, thermal mass, rotary, and ultrasonic flow meters.
Discussion will include the application of each technology to facilities in western Canadian oil and gas up/down/midstream operations. The discussion will be vendor NEUTRAL and will not focus on one particular brand or product. The discussion will include real-world installation details showcasing best practice and failed attempts at measurement that caused error, uncertainty or device failure.
Device applicability to requirements like AER Directive 17 will be discussed, as will calibration, theory of operation, maintenance and more.
