Approved by the Order of the Minister of Energy of the Republic of Kazakhstan of May 5, 2018 No. 163

Rules of measurement and weighing of oil extracted by the subsoil user on the subsoil plot

Chapter 1. General provisions

1. These rules of measurement and weighing of oil extracted by the subsoil user on the subsoil plot (further – Rules) are developed according to Item 1 of article 152 of the Code of the Republic of Kazakhstan "About subsoil and subsurface use" (further – the Code) and determine procedure for measurement and weighing of oil extracted by the subsoil user on the subsoil plot.

2. In these rules the following basic concepts are used:

1) intercontrol interval – period between two next control acts, the variation of metrological characteristics of measuring instruments which is carried out for identification from the values determined when checking;

2) control of metrological characteristics – determination during the period between checkings of variation of values of metrological characteristics of measuring instruments from the valid values or values determined in case of the last checking, establishment of suitability of measuring instruments to further operation;

3) the mass of ballast of oil – the lump of water, chloride salts and mechanical impurity in oil;

4) oil quantity and quality measuring system – set of measuring instruments (converters of expense, converters of density, moisture content, salinity, viscosity, temperature, pressure, basis weight gages), processing devices, storage, indication and registration of results of measurements, the processing and service equipment (the pipelines, filters, pumps, sampler, the locking and regulating armature) intended for development of signals of measuring information in the form convenient for automatic and manual handling;

5) weight gross oils – the oil lump including the mass of ballast;

6) oil net weight – weight difference gross oils and the mass of ballast of oil;

7) the measuring line – the part of design of system of measurement of amount of oil consisting of converters of expense or the basis weight gage with the straight sections of pipelines equipped with measuring instruments of pressure and temperature, latches and filters;

8) the reserve scheme of accounting – the system applied to measurement of mass of oil in case of refusal of the main scheme – system of measurement of quantity and oil quality figures;

9) processing equipment – the locking and regulating fittings, pipelines, filters, struyevypryamitel and straight sections, the circulation pulser, automatic and manual samplers, the probozaborny device, drain tanks, the flushing pump with the corresponding technological binding and measuring devices;

10) arbitral test – the control test used for the umpire analysis.

3. Accounting of oil is performed on the subsoil plot on each well through group zamerny installations in tons. The necessary equipments and gages having the existing certificate on checking and entered in the register of state system for ensuring the uniformity of measurements of the Republic of Kazakhstan are used to ensuring reliability of measurement of mass of oil, and also control of quality of measurement by the subsoil user.

Chapter 2. Procedure for measurement and weighing of oil extracted by the subsoil user on the subsoil plot

4. Measurement and weighing of oil are performed by direct and indirect methods.

5. In case of application of direct methods measure the mass of oil by means of scales, weight dosers and devices (direct static method), mass counters and mass converters of expense (direct dynamic method).

6. The indirect method is subdivided into the volume and mass method and method based on the hydrostatic principle.

7. The indirect volume and mass method is subdivided into indirect volume and mass dynamic method (further - indirect dynamic method) and indirect volume and mass static method (further - indirect static method).

8. The indirect volume and mass dynamic method is applied in case of measurement of mass of oil directly on flow in oil pipelines. At the same time the amount of oil is measured by counters or the converter of expense with integrators.

9. In case of application of indirect volume and mass dynamic method measure amount and density of oil in case of identical or brought to one conditions (temperature and pressure), determine mass gross of oil as the work of values of these sizes, and then calculate oil net weight.

10. Density of oil is measured by line densitometers or areometers for oil in the joint test in the conditions of laboratory, and temperature of oil and pressure under conditions of measurement of density and amount respectively thermometers and manometers.

11. The indirect volume and mass static method is applied in case of measurement of mass of oil in the graduated reservoirs (vertical and horizontal reservoirs, transport reservoirs and tanks).

The mass of oil is determined by results of measurements:

1) in capacity measures:

oil level – the stationary level gage or measuring instruments of level of liquid (laser, mechanical, hydrostatic, electric, acoustic, radar, reflex microwave, radiation types);

oil density – figurative or stationary measuring instrument of density, or the areometer;

oil temperatures – the thermometer in pointed tests or by means of the figurative or stationary converter of temperature;

oil amount – according to the calibration table of measure of capacity with use of result of measurements of level;

2) in measures of complete capacity:

oil density – figurative measuring instrument of density, or the areometer in laboratory, the laboratory densitometer, or using density converter;

oil temperatures – the figurative converter of temperature or the thermometer in pointed test of oil;

the amount of oil accepted equal to the valid capacity of measure which value is caused on the marking plate and is specified in the certificate on checking, taking into account change of level of oil concerning the index of level.
