3.3 Calibration of Compact & Bi-Directional Provers


The Service Provider to provide services for re-certification of Compact Prover
and Bi-
Directional Prover located at Client on-shore facilities. The calibration shall be
done at Client site. Below is brief description of concepts behind compact and
bi-directional provers and work scope.

3.3.1Concept for Water Draw Calibration of Compact Prover.


• The calibration will consist of collecting water being displaced by the
Prover Piston during a calibration run. The Compact Prover volume is
determined by measuring the amount of water displaced by the Piston
as it passes the optical detector switches.
• Flexible hoses will be connected such that water is taken from the
reservoir, through the pump, and then to the upstream calibration
point of the Compact Prover. A second hose will be taken from the
downstream calibration point of the Compact Prover such that the
water will return to the reservoir via the Primary Measure. By this
method a closed loop circulation facility is maintained.
• The optical switches of the Compact Prover are connected to the
Water Draw control box circuit which is then connected to the
solenoid valve. The flow of water into the Primary Measure will be
regulated by the solenoid valve during the Water Draw process.
3.3.2Concept for Water Draw of Bi-Directional Prover.
• The calibration will consist of collecting water being displaced by the
Prover Sphere during a calibration run. The Bi-Directional Prover
volume is determined by measuring the amount of water displaced by
the Sphere as it passes the detector switches.
• Flexible hoses will be connected such that water is taken from the
reservoir, through the pump, and then to the upstream calibration
point of the Bi-Directional Prover. A second hose will be taken from
the downstream calibration point of the Bi-Directional Prover such

19-Jan-11 Page 5

that the water will return to the reservoir via the Primary Measure. By
this method a closed loop circulation facility is maintained.
• The switches of the Bi-Directional Prover are connected to the Water
Draw control box circuit which is then connected to the solenoid
valve. The flow of water into the Primary Measure will be regulated by
the solenoid valve during the Water Draw process.
