PetroChina calls for Flow-Cal expertise


Flow-Cal is privileged to announce that the company’s Hydrocarbon Measurement Subject Matter Expert (SME), Scott Tanner, was invited to present at the 2014 Oil and Gas Pipeline Process System Technology International Seminar.

The seminar was held at PetroChina’s pipeline operations corporate headquarters in Langfang, China, which is widely known as China’s “Silicon Valley” and “Technology Centre”. Langfang hosts China’s Central Gas Control Centre and is home to virtually every pipeline engineering and design firm in China. 

Currently, China measures natural gas in volume, while the US and most countries measure in energy. PetroChina aims to explore the initiative to convert all natural gas measurement to energy measurement, and intended for the seminar to introduce technology that can assist in a more efficient pipeline network.

“The FLOWCAL software can benefit China in helping to identify areas where they could tie in chromatograph and volumetric data,” said Tanner. “If there are areas in measurement where issues have occurred, whether in instrumentation or with Flow Computers, there is currently no way for them to correct this data. FLOWCAL would provide a method of identifying and correcting for all lost and unaccounted for data with a full audit trail.”
