ABB partners with Oil & Gas metering company
ABB has announced a partnership with ODS Metering Systems, an independent manufacturer of custody transfer flow measurement solutions, that will see ABB’s Flow-X computers support an increasing number of oil and gas customers with an accurate and reliable automation platform for custody transfer.
The partnership sees the two companies combining their respective strengths: ABB with their innovative flow computers, the control devices known in the industry for their exceptional accuracy and reliability, and ODS Metering Systems with the skills to help customers transition to new solutions through further digitalization and with minimum disruption. Through their expertise, global service and maintenance capacity, ODS Metering Systems will secure the seamless integration of ABB flow computers in newly built systems as well as refurbishment projects.
Custody transfer is a critical part of oil and gas logistical and commercial operations and is central to risk mitigation, inventory management, quality control and regulatory compliance. The ABB Flow-X series play a crucial role within these operations by accurately measuring and recording the quantity of the oil and gas being transferred from one party to another, protecting the interests of both buyers and sellers.
The Flow-X computer systems have an accuracy of 0.008 percent over a wide ambient temperature range as well as reliable performance, with the mean time between failures longer than 100 years.
