Course description
Since the Netherlands adopted natural gas in the 1960s, DNV GL has been involved in the design and operation of natural gas metering stations. This three day training course provides in-depth insight into all aspects of fiscal metering and includes a site visit to a large custody transfer station. It helps you to design and operate accurate and reliable metering stations with low levels of measurement uncertainty. You will find out how to minimise systematic errors, learn to judge whether the company that measures your natural gas usage is generating accurate data and push your gas balance to equilibrium. 

After attending, you will have gained both practical and theoretical knowledge. You will understand the principles of designing and operating fiscal metering systems for natural gas and you will be fully aware that designing an accurate measurement system not only requires sound knowledge of metering techniques, but also practical experience of do's and don'ts. 

For this advanced training course, it is recommended that participants possess a basic knowledge of gas, gas flow metering and gas quality metering principles. If all this is relatively new ground, we recommend that you attend the introductory course as well. The courses can be taken consecutively, as the introductory course is always planned the day before the advanced course begins. 

We also have a one day introduction to Wet gas metering and sales gas allocation course.  

On request, DNV GL can also provide an in-house training course in the English or Dutch language (content, location and duration of the course can be adapted to the client's wishes). Please contact us for more information.
