Date: Wednesday April 4, 2018
Time: 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM EDT

Presenter: Brendan Robson, TÜV SÜD NEL
Project Team Leader: Dan White, TransCanada
PRCI Project Manager: Gary Choquette

Brendan Robson of TÜV SÜD NEL will be presenting information on PRCI project MEAS-7-1 Gap Analysis in Liquid Volume Proving Methods”. This webinar will describe the best practices in measurement system design and proving procedures in order to reduce liquid measurement uncertainty. This is in recognition that improvements made to the calibration of flow meters would have a direct correlation in reducing system measurement uncertainty, improving overall pipeline balancing, and, amongst other benefits, reducing the minimum detection thresholds of leak detection systems.

The project includes an extensive literature review of proving practices, standards, developments and case studies. This was balanced by an industrial survey which collected views, experiences and priorities. A gap analysis was then conducted on the literature and survey results to meet the project’s recommendations on areas of improvement and derived priorities.

Expected Benefits/Learning Outcomes

After attending this webinar the participants will: Understand the basic operation of Small Volume Provers.

  • Appreciate the range of different prover types.
  • Assess the range of measurements associated with SVP operation.
  • Understand how the PRCI project employed an unbiased methodology to assess an extensive library of prover literature and identify gaps in metrology.
  • Identify key results from an industry survey of users who represented over 400 provers world-wide will be presented.
  • Understanding the specific proving sensitivities of Coriolis and ultrasonic flow meters.
  • Recommendations on areas to concentrate resources will be discussed: aiming to fill the critical gaps.

Who Should Attend?

Liquids pipeline operators that use, control or maintain small volume provers and standards organizations:

  • Field operations and maintenance personnel
  • Measurement specialists
  • Design engineers of liquid measurement facilities.
  • Operations management
