Gas and Liquid Data Validation (MDV)

Gas and Liquid Data Validation (MDV)

Coastal Flow’s Measurement Data Validation (MDV) process is a technically driven, economically beneficial approach to improving the accuracy and accountability of volume and energy determinations for both gas and liquid hydrocarbons utilizing our in-house FLOWCAL or your own FLOWCAL environment. This leading-edge process is intended to reduce operating expenses while minimizing “Lost and Un-Accounted For” (LUAF) quantities for maximizing bottom-line profitability. The integrated measurement services that comprise our MDV process include:

• Gas Measurement Data Validation
• Liquids Measurement Data Validation
• Ticket Data Validation
• Missing Data Analysis
• Orifice Chart Integration
• Analytical Data Verification
• Integrated Linking to Field Reports and Analytical Data
• Auto-Import and Data Processing Capabilities
• Auto-Exports and Reporting for Timely Data Transfer
• Comprehensive Data Archiving

BirdDog Remote Data Retrieval

BirdDog Remote Data Retrieval

BirdDog Remote Data Retrieval system is a simple yet powerful means to obtain measurement data without the cost of building and maintaining a complex SCADA system. This BirdDog system can utilize the latest generation of communications equipment and technologies to collect data and monitor field operations. Coastal Flow’s field technicians can supply, install, and service all necessary equipment to link the BirdDog Remote Data Retrieval system with your meters and other field devices. BirdDog schedules routine data polling and automatic updates to reports and graphs for viewing and analysis. Data is collected and logged according to AGA 14.3 and stored in an API Chapter 21.1 compliant format, essential for downstream review, recalculation, volume reporting, and auditing.
