T-332 - Custody/Fiscal Metering


Any losses in Custody Transfer are very large and non-recoverable. Mistakes of any kind with processes in place are very critical and extremely costly. Only through arbitration and lengthy legal claims can partial of the losses be redeemed. Errors in flow measurements can subject petroleum companies to significant financial losses.
The type of work required to properly conduct and maintain accurate custody transfer flow measurements is restrictive and very specialised. Controlling losses up front is much easier than reclaiming losses incurred due to improper measurement.
