This page contains an overview of a new market study from Flow Research on the worldwide oil flowmeter market. The study is now available. If you are interested in the study, please contact Jesse Yoder at Flow Research by email at  jesse@flowresearch.com, or call Flow Research at 781-245-3200.


Module C: The World Market for Custody Transfer of Petroleum Liquids, is a component of a broader study, The World Market for Oil and Oil Flow Measurement, which examines suppliers, producers, applications, industries, custody transfer, and multiphase flowmeters. 

About Module C

This module focuses specifically on the market for custody transfer of oil, the fastest growing niche within the flowmeter market.

Much of the growth in this market has been due to growth in the use of ultrasonic flowmeters for custody transfer applications. This growth has been spurred by the publication of AGA-9 by the American Gas Association (AGA) in 1998, updated in 2007, as well as standards from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and International Organization of Legal Metrology (OIML). AGA-9 lays out criteria for buyers and sellers of oil to follow when using ultrasonic flowmeters for custody transfer of oil.

Module C contains market data on DP, turbine, and ultrasonic flowmeters for custody transfer of oil, compares their use, and projects the growth in these technologies through 2016.

What’s included:

• Market data on ultrasonic, turbine, and differential pressure (DP) flowmeters used for custody transfer applications

• Flowmeter growth projections through 2016

• Comparison of flowmeter types in custody transfer

• Strategies for selling into this market
