  • Participants will learn:
  • How representative samples are collected using automatic and manual methods.
  • About the test methods available for obtaining the data necessary to determine quantity for custody transfer purposes and conformance to expected quality .
  • How to evaluate the commodity for assessing handling and processing characteristics, especially opportunity crude oil.
  • The challenges facing refiners and analysts as crude oil streams become heavier, and higher in sulfur and acid content.
  • Understand how sampling is used to monitor for compliance with regulations for water and wastewater effluent.
  • Understand common sampling methods and procedures including grab samples, composite samples, and automatic sampler tools, and how to determine which procedure is appropriate based on the circumstance, including routine bacteriological sampling, full chemical analysis, sampling for THMs, influent sampling, primary clarifier sampling, mixed liquor sampling, and monitoring well sampling.
  • Calculate the area, volume and time required to flush tanks and pipes.
