Focus on operational efficiencies in Oil & Gas sector

Emerson has clearly seen a resurgence of activity and spend in the Oil & Gas sector. “In terms of major growth waves, we see 3 significant areas of focus for flow metering – addressing flow measurement challenges for Shale, particularly in the Permian, onshore multiphase adoption, and the growth in major capital projects (both upstream and midstream). The overall market has changed in that we see that operators are much more focused on operational efficiencies to get the most out of the assets they have.”

Peter Blangé: Performance in elite sport: you can’t improve what you can’t measure

We are very happy to announce the exciting closing presentation at the European Flow Measurement Workshop which you can’t afford to miss. Peter Blangé will close the day on Wednesday and will present an overview of the development of application of high-tech measurement to elite sport, which he has experienced as an athlete and as a technologist. Peter was the captain of the Dutch volleyball team that won the gold medal in the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, and he played in three more Olympics, including in 1992 in Barcelona.

Mastering calibration methods

At the basis of a good flow measurement is a properly calibrated flowmeter. Field calibration of flowmeters is far from straightforward and its impact on the operation of a metering station in the field can be considerable. One of the options is including a fixed pipe prover in the metering system. For an article that appeared in this month’s edition of World Pipelines, Eveline Janse interviewed Erik Smits (VSL) and Shukur Aghazadeh (AzMETCO), who shone their light on various methods for the calibration of the pipe provers, their advantages and drawbacks.

Using diagnostics in market surveillance ​

A growing number of measuring instruments are fitted with features that monitor the instrument’s health. With the exception of some, the majority of the diagnostic functions have no direct link with legal metrology. In an article that has been published in the OIML Bulletin, Wim Volmer explains why their use in legal metrology could be worth considering. Read the full article.
