Meters  are  installed  for  many  different  operational  purposes  including  the  identification  of  malfunctioning  wells,  to  control  flows  within  a  plant,   and  as  check  meters  that  are  not  used  in  the  accounting  process.  Where  measurements  are  not  used  in  the  accounting  process,  their  operation  is   not  required  to  meet  any  regulatory  measurement  standards.  Metering  equipment  does  not  need  to  be  calibrated  or  updated  periodically  to   reflect  new  analysis.  Such  meters  should  be  marked  “Non-­‐Accounting”  on  the  measurement  schematic.  Too  often  calibrations  and  sampling  are   conducted  on  all  meters  at  the  regulated  frequency,  because  companies  fail  to  clarify  which  meters  are  non-­‐accounting,  and  how  they  are  to  be   maintained.

How  FacilityStudio  provides  value  

FacilityStudio  displays  the  following  accounting  uses  for  a  meter  device:  Accounting,  Non-­‐Accounting,  Primary-­‐Accounting,  and  Secondary-­‐ Accounting.  FacilityStudio’s  Missing  Mandatory  Data  report  provides  a  list  of  meters  that  have  not  been  marked  with  an  accounting  use.

Verify  the  following  is  completed  for  each  of  your  meters:

  • Ensure  that  correct  accounting  data  is  filled  in  for  all  your  meters.
  • Review  all  “Non-­‐Accounting”  meters  on  your  measurement  schematics  to  ensure  they  are  not  being  calibrated  or  sampled  for  an  updated   analysis  at  the  same  frequency  as  “Accounting”  meters.  This  type  of  routine  maintenance  on  Non-­‐Accounting  meters  is  not  required  by   regulations;  it  is  by  choice  of  the  operator.

The  image  below  represents  how  Non-­‐Accounting  and  Accounting  meters  in  FacilityStudio  are  displayed  in  a  measurement  schematic.
