3.3 CEUs

Builds on previous two courses and 2 to 5 years of field experience in measurement. Introduces additional trouble-shooting, problem-solving skills, and system performance analysis. Covers advanced techniques in loss control analysis, dynamic metering systems, and knowledge of various methods for calibrating both meter provers and aboveground storage tanks. Addresses needs for advanced EFMs and ATG systems. Uses API MPMS and the ASTM Test Methods.

Fundamental Petroleum Measurement and Intermediate Petroleum Measurement are required as prerequisites to Advanced Petroleum Measurement unless the student is able to demonstrate sufficient knowledge to allow an active participation.
