Flow MEASUREMENT INSITITUTE Oil & Gas Outlook
Author(s): Martin Bragg
Abstract/Introduction:
For the Oil and Gas industry, delivering value in 2017 will depend on activity - through maintenance, new wells and short- cycle projects. Peter Parry, who leads Bains Global Oil & Gas practice discusses how companies can potentially cut cost 25% to 30% by taking a pragmatic approach that focuses on value and innovation.

MetroHyVe Metrology for Hydrogen Vehicles
Author(s): Norman Glen
Abstract/Introduction:
EURAMET - European Regional Metrology Organisation, which coordinates the cooperation of National Metrology Institutes (NMI) and Designated Institutes (DI) of Europe. EURAMET set up a European Metrology Programme for Innovation and Research (EMPIR), jointly funded by the European Union and participating countries. EMPIR is the main programme for European research on metrology. It coordinates research projects to address grand challenges, while supporting and developing the SI system of measurement units.

DP Meter Verification System - Multiple Field Results
Author(s): Jennifer Rabone
Abstract/Introduction:
Verification Methods Verification - always been a big part of the metering engineers job: Mass balance checks Pay/Check meters Pay/Check Instrumentation Meter inspections Instrument calibrations Flow Computer verifications Due diligence Good metering practice These are External Diagnostics and dont catch common mode failure Maintenance checks are spot checks. Issues can be missed. What about maintenance induced errors? How do you know whats happening between inspections? Diagnostics do not replace this requirement - a combination of due diligence AND diagnostics is good metering practice
