FPSO and Offshore Measurement Technology Update
A Downsized Solution for Applications Where Size Matters
A Meter Prover Option to Reduce Weight, Reduce Footprint and Increase Accuracy!
FPSO APPLICATIONS OVERVIEW
While FPSO and offshore measurement systems must maintain the same critical custody transfer measurement standards that apply to land-based facilities, these floating or fixed base marine platforms have additional challenges that do not apply to onshore metering stations.
System Weight & Footprint
For FPSO and Offshore design engineers, perhaps the most critical design considerations focus on the physical size, system buoyancy, and system weight. In fact, controlling or reducing component size and system weight can significantly impact the total system ROI and costs reflected in both CAPEX and OPEX.
The inherent benefits of FMD’s Small Volume Prover (SVP) technology is a natural solution for the footprint and weight challenges encountered by FPSO and Offshore measurement systems.
FPSO and offshore applications require the same stringent standards for custody transfer as on-shore in-situ proving.
