Course Description

Custody transfer in fluid measurement is defined as the metering point (location) where the fluid is being measured for sale from one party to another.  It organizes the commercial transactions of good (Oil and Gas products, chemicals and etc).  In a custody transfer system, detailed reports are generated with no possible chance of mistakes since even the smallest mistake can cost the company great financial losses. This course will enable participants to understand the basics of the devices that are key to the financial success of the organisation.
