Crude Oil Flow Measurement

Date: 24th – 25th January 2019

Venue: Bangkok, Thailand


Main Learning Objectives and Benefits: 

  • Understanding the theory behind flow measurement
  • Getting to grips with the performance of flow meters
  • Understanding differential type flowmeters
  • Understanding positive displacement flowmeters
  • Understanding turbine flowmeters
  • Understanding magnetic flow meters
  • Understanding Coriolis flowmeters
  • Appreciating considerations that are applicable to flow measurement


Course Description:

Flow measurement is crucial in any industry. However, it becomes even more important and vital when dealing with crude oil. A slight error may not sound like much, but in the long run, it can amount to millions of dollars that someone must pay for. To prevent this, very careful attention has been placed on crude oil flow measurement aspects, and more specifically, the devices that are used for this function.


The aim of the course is to delve into a lot of the theory behind flow measurement, as well as the individual instruments that are used for this purpose. Where applicable, standards are referred to, for the sake of completeness. There are many choices of equipment out there, and the aim of this course is to narrow down the options, bearing in mind that you still need to adhere to the recommendations of your organisation.


Participants will walk away with the ability to:

  • Appreciate auxiliary equipment that goes together with flow measurement
  • Understand the various equations, gas laws, and definitions that come into play during flow measurement
  • Consider system characteristics that are of importance to crude oil flow measurement
  • Appreciate the important theoretical aspects of flow measuring equipment
  • Understand how the relevant standards fit in, and the role that they play



Who Should Attend?

This course will be applicable and of benefit to everybody that either works with, manages, or encounters crude oil flow measuring devices (whether for fiscal flow measurement or otherwise), during their normal working activities, especially in the oil industry. This will include, but not be limited to, the following people:

  • Instrumentation and control engineers
  • Instrumentation and control technicians
  • Mechanical engineers
  • Mechanical technicians
  • Maintenance personnel
  • Service personnel
  • Supervisors and Foremen
  • Operators
