“Chart Auditing” Tom Tauer with Southern Flow Companies submitted this paper for the 1992 AFMS short course. Tom uses his company’s experience to convey the effect of the 7 main problem areas in chart integration and 9 main problem areas in chart operations. A methodology is explained to systematically review charts and compare with other check metering.

The Gas Connection This site is part of IBM’s on line information network for the petroleum industry. They have a wide range of coverage on all issues relating to Natural Gas: links to other Internet resources, energy quotes, press releases, and even interactive forums. This site is really great, and the webmasters will even help you locate resources you’re looking for. All you have to do is email them, and help is only a few mouse clicks away.
The Gas Research Institute (GRI) is the research, development, and commercialization (RD&C) organization of the natural gas industry, whose mission is to discover, develop, and deploy technologies and information that measurably benefit gas customers and the industry. Their site has a wealth of technical information and resources that cover all aspects of the gas sector of the petroleum industry. you can even order custom reports prepared by the institute directly for their web page. The most extensive resources are available only for members, but your company may already be a member. To check if you may be member, CLICK HERE

Oil World is quite possibly one of the most amazing oil and gas sites on the web. It is updated TWICE daily, and includes information on EVERYTHING in the oil and gas industry. The webmaster has been operating this site since 1996, and they have really done an excellent job providing coverage on almost every new development affecting the oil and gas industry since then. It’s not a technical resource, although they do provide links to other technical resources on the Internet. It is primarily a news service, but you get news on every technical sector in the oil and gas industry. If you don’t currently read this site daily, you are LOSING MONEY! They even offer daily fax services of featured highlights or energy quotes.

The Pipeliner’s Yellow Pages is sponsored by the Drannon Marketing Group, and has a pretty decent collection of links to Pipeline resources. Although they focus on companies and organizations directly connected to servicing and maintaining pipelines, the scope of this sub-sector of the oil and gas industry is rather broad, so you will find a diverse collections of resources here. This site also has a pretty decent collection of resumes and personnel informatio, so if you’re looking for a job, or for prospective employees, you might want to visit. The site is not that easy to navigate through, and it’s not very visually appealing, but it does offer good informational links, so it’s worth a visit.

“The Value Of A Check Meter And Surveillance System” Roland Rollins submitted this paper at the 1996 AFMS Short Course as an examination of the benefits of using check meters and surveillance. The data for the graphs was derived from the Gulf Coast Onshore Unit of Vastar Resources Inc. an explorer, producer, and marketer of natural gas. This Unit includes gas-condensate fields in southern Louisiana and south-eastern Texas, utilizing nine transporters with seventeen stations including a mix of large and medium sized pipe lines. A range of 29 to 93 BCF per year deliveries occurred during the study period of 1990 to 1996.
