Methods to prevent oil theft from well site

Postby Aby » Wed Jun 14, 2017 6:42 pm

One of the clients of Oges.info is facing the problem of oil theft from well site. We believe that well produces more but reported oil volume is less.
All wells produce from 25bbl/day to 300 bbl/day. Oil gets collected in tank on the well site. The gas gets released from tank. Then a tanker comes and collect the oil from tank and goes to nearby processing plant.
As of today, they have put meters just after Xmas tree. These meters transfer values over internet to their head office. They still feel that there is leakage somewhere. What additional or better equipments and processes they can setup ? Please share some examples and case studies.

Looking forward to your reply!

Thanks in Advance!

In some cases the truck upload oil with volume x and deliver volume less than x in the receiving terminal.
In this case a lock must be installed on ALL input and exit points of each truck
