DM Petroleum Operations Relies On FPI Mag Flow Meter For Tough U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve Application

Source: McCrometer, Inc.

New tests recently performed by DM Petroleum Operations Company with the FPI Mag® Flow Meter from McCrometer continue to confirm the flow meter’s accurate performance and reliability on two rugged Texas brine disposal lines supporting the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR). The first FPI Mag Flow Meters were originally selected for conducting periodic tests on the brine lines in 1996, and the latest generation of FPI Mag meter validates the dependable performance first experienced over 17 years ago.

With a capacity of 727 million barrels, the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) is the world’s largest stockpile of government-owned emergency crude oil.

Established after the 1973-74 oil embargo, the SPR provides the nation with a powerful response option should a disruption in oil supplies threaten the U.S. economy. It is also the critical component for the United States to meet its International Energy Agency obligation to maintain emergency oil stocks and it provides a national defense fuel reserve.
