LOOP METERING AND PROVING SYSTEMS

The Louisiana Offshore Oil Port (LOOP) project will be the first deep water port constructed in the United States for the importation of foreign crude oil. The port facility will be located in the Gulf of Mexico southwest of Grand Isle, Louisiana. The LOOP Deep water port will be able to unload ships up to 700,000 DWT via single anchor leg mooring (SALM) systems, a pumping platform complex (PPC), and submarine pipelines directly into underground storage cavities located onshore. A description is given of the design and operation of the skidmounted metering and proving systems that will measure flowrates up to 100,000 BPH.
