White Paper on long time measurement reliability

As oil and gas are valuable commodities, accurate measurement gets increasingly important in the oil and gas industry. Oil and gas flow meters with lower measurement uncertainties are being developed, but are we aware which additional effects also play a role in the overall uncertainty and performance of the installation as a whole? What will happen with the measurement uncertainty in five years? Which expenses are involved?

Wim Volmer, Senior Product manager Oil & Gas at NMi, examines the importance of starting at the drawing board in terms of long time measurement reliability. His point of view was published as an interview in World Pipelines, April 2014, and is still tremendously up to date.
