Intellects Energy Ltd.

Oil and Gas Fiscal Metering (FM009)

  • Course duration: 5 days (8 am – 5 pm daily)
  • Course fee: N105,000         

         Course Objective

  • This 5 days course is developed to give hand on practical experience on gas and liquid fiscal metering systems configuration, calibration, and maintenance to attendees. The course is delivered using work place standard analyzers and function testing calibration gas/solutions by our very experienced field instrument engineers. The senior instructor has over 10 years of experience and he’s a certified Safety Instrumented System Functional Safety Engineer (FS Eng) by TUV Rheinland

         Who Should Attend

  • This course is opened to electrical and instrument personnel, operations and maintenance personnel and everyone, however, attendees without engineering or instrumentation and measurement background are encouraged to register for our Practical Instrumentation, Measurement and Controls Principles (IMC001) to acquire basic knowledge. Attendees must be able to write and read.
