Call for Abstract

Introduction

All submitted abstracts will be reviewed by a nominated Technical Program Committee of industry experts for content and possible inclusion within the Workshop program.  Priority is given to papers being presented by operators, or papers that include operator experience. Practical content and field experience will be emphasized, since the aim of the event is to maintain a workshop environment.

    • Fiscal metering, allocation metering, multiphase, and wet gas measurement challenges
    • Metering concepts, including marginal fields, late phase, and virtual metering
    • Multiphase and single phase sampling and analysis
    • Environmental measurements, CCS, alternative fuels, flare gas etc.
    • Subsea measurement challenges
    • Liquefied natural gas (LNG) metering
    • On-line analysis, e.g., composition, H2S, H2O, dew point, and CO2
    • Meter inline diagnostics, data evaluation and accuracy
    • Quality control, calibration, verification, and uncertainty
    • Research results, standards and regulations
    • Heavy oil: single phase and multiphase metering
    • Oil metering with high water content

    Abstracts containing other relevant industry topics will also be taken into consideration.
