Abstract: During the last 10 years, gas measurement has gone through a period of incredible change. Since the early 1900s, mechanical recorders have dominated the gas measurement industry but, since 1985, the advent of low powered flow computers has been changing the way we do business in the gas industry. There are over 50,000 flow computers in daily operation in the United States from a variety of manufacturers. This fundamental change in a basic process has produced impacts on the economics of the gas industry in several areas. This paper will not attempt to walk you through economic calculations since the variables are many and vary from company-tocompany , depending upon your individual needs. Instead, we will look at three primary areas that are impacted by the decision to use electronic flow measurement (EFM) . These areas are: field operations, measurement office and computing.
