Introduction

Accurate flow measurement is essential to today's oil & gas operations. This course aims to provide training to facility operators, technicians, and engineers, which, once delivered, "keep on working". Participants are encouraged to raise queries both during and at any time after attending the seminar. Participants are also encouraged to bring with them any issues that they may have to the course.
