Description / Abstract:

Scope and Field of Application

This publication deals with the operation and special arrangements of meters, provers, manifolding, instrumentation, and accessory equipment used to measure the loading and unloading of marine buk carriers.

The information provided in this publication is applicable to shore-to-canier and carrier-to-shore measurement of crude oils and refined products. These procedures are not intended to apply to hydrocarbons that require specialized measurement and handling equipment, such as liquefied natural gas (LNG).

Applicable carriers may range from river barges to oceangoing ultralarge crude carriers (ULCCs). Measuring equipment will, accordingly, range from small metering installations that use bare essentials to very large, sophisticated metering installations that incorporate optimal equipment that speed operations and ensure optimum measurement accuracy in vessels that handle large volumes.
