How to Achieve More Accurate Measurement
Author(s): Carl Jarvis
Abstract/Introduction:
The AER has developed standards of accuracy for gas and liquid measurement that take into account such concerns as royalty, equity, reservoir engineering, declining production rates, and aging equipment. These standards have evolved, but originated from a 1972 Energy Resources Conservation Board hearing decision that determined a need for pool production accuracy standards of 2.0 per cent for oil, 3.0 per cent for gas, and 5.0 per cent for water. The current standards are stated as maximum uncertainty of monthly volume and/or single point measurement uncertainty. The uncertainties are to be applied as plus/minus (e.g., 5.0 per cent). Measurement at delivery/sales points must meet the highest accuracy standards because volumes determined at these points have a direct impact on royalty determination. Other measurement points that play a role in the overall accounting process are subject to less stringent accuracy standards to accommodate physical limitations and/or economics.

Safe, efficient and compliant meter verifications are finally available for all Intelligent Flow Meters.
Author(s): Jason Riegert
Abstract/Introduction:
Todays Intelligent Flow Meters have no moving internal parts, resulting in no physical wear or tear, no maintenance and an expectation of long-term stability that the meter calibration will not drift over time. In fact some flow meters today even come with guaranteed life time calibration. The fact that meters have these characteristics, exceptional accuracy, long-term stability and they deliver multivariable process data like mass, corrected volume, temperature and density measurement all from a single device and now they can verify themselves - is it all too good to be true? Absolutely not!

Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Technology Overview
Author(s): NA
Abstract/Introduction:
Atrex Energy Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFCs) are truly state-of-the-art, 21st Century Technology whose time has come. SOFCs, in full scale production since early 2011, provide levels of efficiency and environmental friendliness previously unobtainable for remote power applications while providing the levels of system availability such applications have come to expect. This Technical White Paper provides the customer with some background information on fuel cells in general and then provides some specifics on Solid Oxide Fuel Cells that Atrex Energy has successfully developed over the past decade. This TWP, when combined with the Technical Datasheets for the 4 different models currently being sold commercially, will provide any reader with a very comprehensive understanding of the technology involved.

Net Oil Computer Software Overview
Author(s): Tim Montgomery
Abstract/Introduction:
NOC Introduction The Net Oil Computer (NOC) is used to determine the net oil and water present in an emulsion stream. Uses a MicroMotion Meter to provide mass flow, density and temperature of the emulsion. The NOC will use the temperature effect on the oil and water density to determine the net oil and water volume at standard conditions. Can also accept an input from a water cut analyzer. Optional Proface display can provide a user interface to manage testing and database entries.
