Custody Transfer Flowmeters – An Evolution in Technology

Posted by TechStar on Nov 12, 2019 10:58:00 AM

Custody Transfer (also know as Fiscal Metering) in the oil & gas industry refers to the transactional transfer of a substance, raw or refined, from one party (owner) to another.

Typically when custody transfer is taking place, the end goal is to determine the value or payment between two parties for the physical substance (gas or liquid) that has exchanged hands via pipeline. For that reason, the flow instrument that measures the total amount of product changing ownership can be viewed as a cash register between the two parties.

Optimum control of production to avoid unnecessary costs

Raw materials and end products are accepted, processed, stored and delivered in almost all industrial processes. In order to optimally control production while avoiding unnecessary costs and ensuring product quality, the volume flows must be recorded correctly and seamlessly. This task should be solved as precisely as possible and with minimum pressure losses. The application-specific parameters must, of course, be taken into account, such as the type and composition of the medium to be measured, process pressure and temperature range.
