Flow Meters Commissioning Challenges

Flow Metering

Abstract: Wasit Gas Plant Department got succeeded in commissioning number of NGL turbine flow meters, and resolving the flow discrepancy issue between different types of flow meters. This success came after overcoming number of challenges and obstacles that unexpectedly occurred such like bubbles. It was nightmare for everybody in the plant. Once the commissioning of these flow meters got started, we faced new obstacle at each time and we moved to the next phase of the commissioning plan. Mainly, we applied the operational excellence method in our corrective plans to overcome each challenge or obstacle. It is based on (Where are we (Starting Point) / Where are we going to be (Ending Point)). Then, we developed the correction path from the starting point to the ending point, utilizing the new and available techniques and technologies. The next plan was to add this successful story as lesson learned to avoid similar issues from reoccurrence.
