In today's world, names that begin with a lowercase "i" have become ubiquitous, generally referring to electronic computing and telecommunications devices. And even though the overused "i" naming trend is likely to continue, Coastal Flow has chosen iMeasurement as the designation for our advanced integrated measurement process based on the numerous relevant and important connotations.
Among the many "i" words that are integral to iMeasurement are: Integration; the Internet; Interchange; Infrastructure; Integrity; Intelligence; Innovation; Information; and, of course, Income.
Coastal Flow's iMeasurement process is a technically driven, economically beneficial approach to improving the accuracy and accountability of volume and energy determinations for hydrocarbon streams. This leading-edge method is intended to reduce operating expenses while minimizing "Lost and Un-Accounted For" (LUAF) quantities for maximizing bottom-line profitability. The integrated measurement processes that comprise iMeasurement include:
The diagram below provides a graphical representation of the major iMeasurement components and their functional integration.
Electronic Flow Measurement (EFM) is one area in which iMeasurement solutions can improve accuracy, accountability, data integrity, flow and well data management, remote data retrieval, and, with a well-executed measurement policy, provide a significant ROI. And while any of the components that make up the iMeasurement process can be implemented individually, the synergies available through deployment of multiple components can provide a correspondingly increased operational and economic benefit.
