Mass Measurement of Hydrocarbon Fluids (Direct and Inferred)
Endorsed by the Gas Processors Association
This course may assist in meeting requirements for DOT Operator Certification.
Teaches theory, installation, operation, and proving practices of mass measurement of light hydrocarbon fluids including natural gas liquids and other liquids. Provides instruction in meter proving and calculation of meter factors for meters in high vapor pressure service (e.g., propane or mixed NGLs). Provides instruction and simulation/demonstration of densitometer proving by pycnometer and pycnometer calibration. Demonstrates proper procedures and emphasizes safe practices; and provides instruction in the calculation of volumes at base conditions of single-grade light hydrocarbons from measured NGL mixes. Emphasis placed upon proper procedures and safe practices.
