Advanced Petroleum Measurement (third of three levels)

3.3 CEUs

Builds on previous two courses and 2 to 5 years of field experience in measurement. Introduces additional trouble-shooting, problem-solving skills, and system performance analysis. Covers advanced techniques in loss control analysis, dynamic metering systems, and knowledge of various methods for calibrating both meter provers and aboveground storage tanks. Addresses needs for advanced EFMs and ATG systems. Uses API MPMS and the ASTM Test Methods.

Length: 4.5 days

Course Content:
