This course emphasizes the criticality and application of Data Reconciliation to flow metering data. The basic principles covered will apply to all measured data which is required to be reconciled.
Course Structure: 6 modules of 2.5 hours each, delivered over 3 days Each day will consist of 2 modules of 2.5 hours, with multiple breaks.
Course Level: Foundation Duration: 3 days Instructor: Mohit Narain
