On 12 and 13 June, KELTON attended the third annual [Re]Calibration workshop organised by FORCE Technology in Copenhagen, coming together with over 100 industry experts interested in the topic of calibration.
Following on from KELTON’s participation in the event last year, Business Development Manager Joseph O’Neil and Measurement Consultant Derek Scott returned to Denmark, this time also contributing a paper to the proceedings. Presented by Derek Scott, KELTON’s keynote speech was very well received by the expert audience, which was made up of representatives from varying countries as well as from a broad range of OEMs, IOCs, downstream gas operators and calibration facilities.
In his presentation entitled “From FDS to FAT and SAT: You Think We Would Have Learned”, Derek discussed KELTON’s experience in FDS (Functional Design Specification), FAT (Factory Acceptance Test) and SAT (Site Acceptance Test) within the realm of Custody Transfer Measurement. Time delays, non-operational equipment, unexpected changes and inexperienced personnel all have an impact on a successful FAT, SAT and the handover of the operational system. In a practical yet pragmatic approach derived from 16 years of hands on experience in the industry, he shared with attendees the dos and don’ts behind the processes, the pitfalls commonly encountered, as well as valuable lessons learned.
As in the previous year, the event was very well organised, and offered attendees a valuable opportunity to network with potential and existing customers, either as part of the discussion forums of the more intimate ‘speed dating’ sessions, or in a more relaxed environment over dinner. KELTON would like to once again commend FORCE on a meticulously organised workshop, and is looking forward to contributing again next year.
