Natural Gas Chart Integration Services
Chart Processing Notes
AMS will send our chart censoring and integration notes to our client if there is a problem. We do this to cut down on prior month corrections. Some notes are information only, such as high zero noted, and other notes could require followup, such as flow indicates plate may have been changed. A video describing our censoring process can be found on our home page..
Current Month Volume Projection
During the month AMS can provide a projection of the current month total volume based on the charts processed month to date and recent history.
Station Volume Summary Report
In addition to individual meter calculation reports, AMS will provide a summary of the volume by station including on time and average hourly flow rate. This report is also available as a csv file and we can add additional information at no cost to include information normally reported on a Calculation Statement.
Volume Reconciliation Report
At the end of a month, a question may be asked "Why did the production at XYZ change so much?" The VR Report can provide the answer. We summarize the month to month change caused by differences in on-time, measured flow rate and calendar days. Our Chart Processing Notes Report can provide more information.
Facility Material Balance Report
Our Material Balance Report is consistent with typical accounting practices. It can be modified to meet your needs. Our allocations can use volumes you supply, such as outlet EFM volumes, with AMS calculated volumes. Reports can be supplied as a PDF or Excel spreadsheet.
Overdue Meter Calibrations
Our clients have the option to provide AMS their meter calibration schedule. We will keep track of calibration progress and inform our client and or tech group if a calibration is overdue.
Overdue Lab Samples
Our clients also have the option to provide AMS their lab sampling schedule. We will keep track of sampling progress and inform our client and/or lab if certain samples are overdue. Although the lab will perform a quality assurance test, AMS will also flag those samples that are not consistent with prior results for followup.
Orifice Size Change Recommendations
From a percentage standpoint, significant errors can occur when differential is near or slightly above zero. In fact, if the meter is not in calibration, there could be no differential credited. This report looks for meters that have a consistent pattern of running low differential. We will recommend an orifice change, a differential range change, rotation change and/or a tube change.
Production Trend Graph
This report is a simple graph which plots monthly meter volumes over a 2 year default period. Longer plots are available if needed. This report is provided whenever requested by email or text.
Production Management Report
This report consists of 5 pages and plots meter volume, rate, on-time, pressure and a summary of changes to measurement over the requested time frame. We have added statistical projections from the actual data. This report is provided whenever requested by email or text.
12, 24 and 36 Month History Reports
This report is available in several formats:
The 12 month report is available as a PDF document, spreadsheet and/or .CSV file
The 24 and 36 month reports are available as a spreadsheet and/or .CSV file
Each report will show volume history, rate history and on-time history for the selected period
EFM data would be available if the EFM file includes sufficient information for the reports
