Petroleum Measurement Manual: Meter Proving, Section 3 - Code of Practice for the Design, Installation and Calibration of Pipe Provers Pt. 10
Measurement accuracy is essential in the sale, purchase and handling of petroleum products. It avoids disputes between buyer and seller and provides control over losses. Accurate measurement involves the use of standard equipment and procedures. The Petroleum Measurement Committee of the Institute of Petroleum is responsible for the production and maintenance of standards and guides covering the various aspects of static and dynamic measurement of petroleum. Members of the Committee include experts from the oil industry, equipment manufacturers, cargo surveyors and government authorities.
