Custody Transfer defines the point at which ownership changes hands for the process product being measured. This transfer is unique among flow-meter applications since money changes hands and accuracy requirements are higher than they are for most other applications. The custody transfer system must generate detailed and indisputable cargo reports, based on accurate flow measurements and calculations.

This intensive and highly practical seminar include the main principles and applications of traditional and latest process flow measurements techniques and relates them to the importance of high accuracy (±0.125% or better) that is required for implementing successful custody transfer operations. It is designed to help organisations achieve the required strategic goals through better understanding and sound applications of these techniques.

This seminar will highlight:

  • The laws governing fluids and gases
  • Important principles of flow-metering including accuracy and repeatability
  • Main types and applications of Flowmeters with emphasis on custody transfer
  • Flowmeter proving and calibration techniques


This course introduces participants to a variety of flow measurement technologies and systems that are used custody transfer applications, and gain an understanding about how measurement systems can work properly and accurately.

At the end of the seminar, the participants will:

  • Have a sound understanding of relevant fluid and gas Laws that are needed for the use of flow measurement devices.
  • Understand the main requirements of custody transfer systems.
  • Appreciate the main requirements of flow measurements including accuracy and repeatability.
  • Be knowledgeable about up-to-date flow measurement meters including differential pressure (DP) measurement, turbine meters, positive displacement meters, Coriolis flow measurement, Magnetic and ultrasonic flow measurement.
  • Gain the ability to determine if a metering system is adequate for the purpose, select appropriate custody transfer metering systems and identify potential problems.
  • Learn about the principles and applications of Multiple meters/meter runs, Flow computers, Quality systems, Calibration, Meter Runs, Proving and Supporting Automation.
