The Benefits of an Integrated Gas Measurement Process
As the U.S. is poised to become the world’s largest producer of hydrocarbons, the qualitative and quantitative benefits of a fully integrated gas measurement process become increasingly evident. The author examines the functional components of integrated measurement and how these systems synergistically combine for significant bottom-line benefits.
When Measurement Really Matters…Consider the Benefits of EGM Outsourcing
With the advent of business process automation (BPA) and technologies which permit highly integrated data collection and processing, electronic gas measurement (EGM) data management can be outsourced at a very high level of accuracy, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness. This paper reviews the various operational and economic considerations which underlie fully integrated measurement processes and support EGM outsourcing.
Upstream Natural Gas Sales Verification
The authors examine the relationships between natural gas producers and pipeline companies, the responsibilities of each party in a rigorous custody transfer agreement, as well as key processes and considerations for accurate, accountable measurement.
Training Natural Gas Orifice Measurement Technicians
The unparalleled success of hydraulic fracturing and domestic shale play development has created a seemingly insatiable demand for natural gas orifice measurement technicians, and especially those able to support Electronic Gas Measurement (EGM). A comprehensive, effectively deployed training and mentoring program, as presented in this paper, can help to meet today’s staffing demand.
An Updated Examination of Web-Based Solutions for Orifice Measurement & Monitoring – 2014
The latest technologies in the energy industries are reviewed for remote data retrieval, processing, and leveraging the Internet. Case histories cover a SaaS-based system for incorporating manually collected offshore platform data into a centralized system for web access and sharing, as well as a novel approach for alerts on potential leaks in a complex salt water disposal system.
This is a collection of terms which are commonly encountered in the oil & gas industry, in general, and when involved with hydrocarbon measurement, in particular. This reference may be particularly helpful when viewing any of the technical white papers available through the above link.
