A regional light crude pipeline operator in the mountain states of the U.S. was looking for an economical, accurate method to measure crude inventory flow within its pumping stations. The pipeline operator specializes in transporting partially processed crude to other lines or main terminals.

Accurate measurement of liquids is important for all oil and gas industry production or consumption sites. This is especially true for bulk transfer devices where large volumes of products are being moved and must be monitored, including crude oil depots, gasoline and jet fuel tank farms, refineries, and even cruise line terminals.
This document outlines the basics of the metering system design that this energy provider proposes to fit to all their landfill gas and coal mine methane-fuelled power generating sites. A description of the metering system's installation and operation, details of the equipment utilized, and supporting information for ruling on the accuracy of the system has been included.
Offering on-site results in an easy-to-use, rugged, portable lab, Hach's Hydraulic Fracturing Water Analysis Kit covers parameters critical to water analysis in oil and gas applications, including source water, fracturing fluid, produced water, flowback water, water treatment, drilling fluids, and enhanced oil recovery.
The Fox Model FT3 measures two important process variables with a single instrument, providing isolated 4- to 20-mA pulse outputs for flow rate, and a 4- to 20-mA pulse output for process gas temperature or a second flow rate output.
The measurement and control of gas flows in production, refinery, and R&D operations has a direct effect on efficiency, costs, safety, and environmental standards. Sierra mass flow meters and controllers provide direct, fast-response measurements at all levels, to make any operation more effective. Here is a brief summary of the advantage they offer the industry.
Cameron was the first company to develop an ultrasonic flow meter, the LEFM 280CiLT, for dynamic custody transfer of LNG. The major advantage is the eight-path design. The two-plane arrangement of the eight acoustic paths makes the meter insensitive to velocity profile asymmetry and swirl.
