DTEK Oil&Gas Holds Metrology and Gas Metering Training
DTEK Oil&Gas held metrology training on automatic collection, archiving and entering the physicochemical parameters of natural gas into computer complexes. More than 60 people took part in the training, including representatives of Naftogaz of Ukraine, Ukrtransgaz, oil and gas companies, leading equipment manufacturers, and a representative of a standardization, metrology and quality assessment company. Participants from Germany and Ireland shared their experience and advanced solutions.
During the training, the participants discussed the problems arising from the introduction of stream chromatographs and humidity meters and the ways to solve them, examined new devices for stream determination of the physicochemical parameters of gas, modern gas fiscal metering instruments, engineering software for automation systems, and monitoring of the well operating parameters based on autonomous wireless computing devices.
The training participants also took part in the so-called Humidity Meter Battle at the Olefirivska PGTP of DTEK Oil&Gas. The contest involved 5 different types of humidity meters for measuring the dew point of gas by humidity and hydrocarbons, which enabled to compare the strengths and weaknesses of each device.
After visiting the Olefirivska PGTP of DTEK Oil&Gas, the participants of the metrology training noted the high level of the facility’s modern automation, metrology and fiscal gas metering systems.
Olexii Raptanov, Hydrocarbons Extraction and Processing Director at DTEK Oil&Gas, noted, “It is now highly important for gas companies to implement innovative solutions in all production processes, including the field of metrology and gas metering. This metrology training allowed the participants to share experience, discuss the technical details of introducing modern stream chromatographs and humidity meters, and familiarize themselves with innovative solutions in the field of gas metering automation.”
