When Accuracy Matters

Prior to the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme, the measurement of flare gas on oil and gas production facilities in the North Sea was driven mainly by statutory regulations that required operators to simply report emissions to the Environment Agency. Consequently, there was never an economic incentive to install metering equipment.

The Glow of Success

The diversity of flare gas metering installations highlights the need for the expertise provided by ABLE Instruments & Controls Ltd. Here we feature three BP project orders, their particular complexities and how ABLE ensures efficient execution.

Where Flare Measurement Matters

There are two primary concerns industry has when it comes to measuring flare gas and complying with provincial regulations; Overall range ability with an emphasis on low flow repeatability, as well as the ability to adapt to changing process conditions that include flow rates and per cent of carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulfide and methane, to name a few.
