Introduction to Hydrocarbon Allocation Training Course

Inhouse Training1 dayBeginner

In the petroleum industry it is usual that several operators may share pipelines and processing facilities due to the enormous costs of designing and building the infrastructure. When this occurs it is essential that each operator is fairly compensated for the product that they put into the shared infrastructure. Allocation refers to the practice of calculating the quantities and qualities of the hydrocarbons from the various contributing sources to ensure that each source gets fair and equitable compensation. This course will introduce delegates to the various techniques employed in allocation and give worked examples of the techniques described.
