Quorum Business Solutions, a provider of business and information technology solutions for the oil, gas, and renewable energy industry, has released new versions of two software solutions – Quorum PGAS® version 10.0 (PGAS) and Quorum TechTools™ version 10.0 (TechTools). These two liquid/gas measurement applications have been enhanced to support measurement of liquid hydrocarbons and incorporate streamlined security. These enhancements are in support of the oil and gas industry’s shift of focus to liquids-rich production and the need for better management of liquid measurement.
Quorum PGAS 10.0 now provides a consolidated measurement system capable of managing measurement data for liquids and gas. While previous versions of PGAS focused on gas flow measurement requirements, version 10.0 is enhanced to now accommodate a full range of liquid measurement requirements, in addition to gas.
New capabilities to address liquid measurement includes:
- Liquid custody transfer quantities are calculated for a broad range of liquid hydrocarbon products including crude oil, condensate, natural gas liquids (NGLs), Y-Grade, LPGs, refined products, lubricating oils, and specialty products.
- Liquid attributes including vapor pressure and base density are calculated in any measurement units required by the user.
- Data from all meter types are accepted for batch or continuous liquid/gas measurement, as are tank gauges, LACT units, and inventory measurement.
Partial recalculations allow for adjustments from changes in meter factors or S&W measurements. The new software versions providing these enhanced capabilities are created pursuant to Quorum’s ongoing product upgrade release program. Each of Quorum’s products undergo continuous improvement under the guidance of a client user group community. This process ensures that Quorum’s products keep pace with changing industry standards and regulations.
Founded in 1998, Quorum employs more than 385 staff operating out of offices in Houston, Dallas, and Calgary.
