Addressing Harsh Cryogenic Proving Conditions

Movement of hydrocarbon products via pipeline or other transport methods is critical in the oil and gas industry. Whether moving heavy bitumen or light gases converted to liquid, the economy, both locally and globally, depends on the transportation of these products. As these hydrocarbon products are transported and custody is transferred, flow meters provide an accurate source of measurement. The accuracy of flow meters is verified using a proving device. Stringent procedures regulate the proving processes as they facilitate financial transactions (reference API and AGA standards). For ease of transport, storage and consumption, some of the hydrocarbon gases are maintained in liquid form.
