Western Gas Measurement Short Courses

Field Testing Displacement Meters Facilitated By The Transfe Proving Technique
Author(s): Royal S. Ostby
Abstract/Introduction:
There are several methods of field proving displacement meters and each company decides which method is best suited to its particulartype of operation. But in every case, whichever method is used, there will be one standard, or master meter. The most common standard meters are the bell prover, the low pressure flow PfJed iiorderto.haJldlfmetersalf sLes eficientl. Beirprovers work best for shop proving the smaller meters, while low pressure flow type may be used in either the shop or field however, low pressure flow provers are not economical for smaller meters

Neasurenent Applications In Underground Storage
Author(s): Paul A. Hoglund
Abstract/Introduction:
About nine miles southeast of Chehalis in Western Washington, the Pacific Northwest has an underground storage project undergoing initial stages of development. This is owned by a three company partnership, including Washington Natural Gas Company, Washington Water Power Company, and El Paso Natural Gas Company. This is something new for the Pacific Northwest. Certainly the measurement applications are a little different than the gas measurement man normally encounters in somewhat routine daily activities

Odorization
Author(s): L.T. Johnson
Abstract/Introduction:
Odorization is the practice of adding to natural gas small quantities of substances that will impart to the gas a readily detectable and recognizable odor. The reasons for this practice are compelling enough to make it desirable in spite of nominal cost, and would be done even without requirement by regulatory bodies

Processing Of Natural Gas In Western Canada
Author(s): D.A. Duguid
Abstract/Introduction:
Natural gas, that you gentlemen measure for use by your companies and customers, is odorless, tasteless, and colorless. and as weM has travelled a long and complicated route when it reaches you To make gas saleable, many things were done along the way from well to customer. Natural gas occurs in two usual forms in Western Canada, sweet gas and sour gas, with most being the latter.

I N T E G S A T O Rs
Author(s): J. S. Richards
Abstract/Introduction:
Not too many years ago the major topic of discussion among gas measurement people was the use of telemetering equipment for the transmission of orifice metering information as well as pressures, temperatures, valve positioning and supervisory functions. While the use of electro-mechanical integrating equipment for field totalizing of orifice metered volumes of gas has been available for a good many years, it has only been within the last five or six years that these electro-mechanical integrators and solid state logic devices have been developed to the point where the measurement of large volumes of gas could be field integrated at the primary fitting and continuous totalLlng of volumes delivered made instantly available.

The Turbo
Author(s): James L. Hamlin
Abstract/Introduction:
What was once considered a nuisance to oil and gas men of two generations ago is now a very valuable and much in demand commodity. This nuisance was natural gas, the use of which has grown at such a tremendous rate that it has surprised many in the industry. The growth and high esteem that natural gas has experienced during the past twenty years caused an increase in both its purchase and sales price. As natural gas increased in value, it was natural that management became more aware and concerned about measurement,

Metering And Billing Errors - Can They Be Prevented?
Author(s): H. Co Judd
Abstract/Introduction:
Each year your company and mine spend several hundred thousand dollass purchasing new meters and equal amounts are spent reparring and testing other meters in the shop and in the field0 The purpose of all this abviously !s to make certain that each customer gets exactly what he is billed for - no more and no less0 It is unfortunaee that our good intentions and expenditures are often wasted when, more frequently than we like to admit, errors are mode in either metering and/or billing a customer. While it is true that many of these errors are caught and a revised bill based on an estimate is prepared, each time we have to coll and tell a customer that on error was made, it makes it more difficutt the next time you have to contact him. Since one of our objectives in this school is to broaden our background in measuremen, it seems to me that we are long overdue in discussing this important port of measuremen..

Design With Measurement In Mind
Author(s): Don Meierhoff
Abstract/Introduction:
Checks for ovrall accuracy and operation of a meter setting require adequate test points in the proper location. Pressure check points are needed at various times on the inlet side of the meter setting at or near the mlet of the meter at a point sensing the same pressure 11*-t. /J downstream of the meter is needed for differential sensing and blowdown

Use And Maintenance Of Posiitve Displacement Meters - 1967
Author(s): W. A. Smith
Abstract/Introduction:
This title might suggest to some of the people here this morning that all or most of the subjects covered in this paper will be circa 1967 This is not what is intended. We are going to taOJc briefly about some of the problems created by the expansion of the tasks of the Measurement Department in a gas utility and review some of the known techniques that are available to all of us to help overcome these difficulties brought about by the increased work loads.

Theres More To Measurement Than Meets The Eye
Author(s): E Niederer, Jr.
Abstract/Introduction:
It has been said that the day a company becomes satisfied with the products they, make or services rendered to the public-- That is the day a company starts moving backward. This applies to us as individuals. We must continually strive to improve our performance and broaden our scope. This and other measurement short courses given throughout various parts of the country are organized and supported by our companies to further ad improve this important phase of the gas industry

Distribution Regulation
Author(s): Reed Penning
Abstract/Introduction:
Gas distribution system pressures are controlled with pressure regulators at many points in the system. This control begins at he town border station, where inlet pressures may be as hiqh as 800 psi, and ends at a customers aas appliance, Lre the pressure is f?ally reduced to 7 inches of water. Ashe primary control device in a distribution system, pressure regulators are a key component In the delivery of a safe, uninterrupted supply of gas through heaviIy populated areas to serve customers that have completely different requirements as to pressure and volume

High Pressure Gas Regulation
Author(s): William R. Hobbs
Abstract/Introduction:
With the coming of high pressure pipe and equipment, so came the high pressure pipelines that we now know. It is the use of these high pressure s y s t m s t h at make the deliverability of gas over great spans of different geologicaTterrain economically possible. At the points along the high pressure system here the gas is taken off for sale to customers, t h i s pressure has to be r e d e H o the customers needs which is generally a minimuu of 150 Lbs, As the g a s s o has to be measured, this regulation point becomee both a regulation and a measurement station. The measurement and regulation of gas a r e intertwined that it would be impossible to t a l k about one and not the other. wrSll endeavor to keep this paper as much as possible on regulation problems Sd how

LNG The Fuel Of The Future
Author(s): Ronold T. Mille. Harold A. Grobey
Abstract/Introduction:
Construction of an LNG Plant is influencdd by a great many decision, not the least of which is - WHY DID WE CREATE THIS MONSTER? Seriously, it is a giant step from gas distribution to the complexities of an LNG process plan,, and the moment of truth will be ten months and 22 doys from now when we pull the switch on the first LNG plant in the Northwest. I hope that those af you who cannot be with us in person on that date will be there in spirit - we may need all the help we can get
