Dutch Partner in Egyptian Calibration Facility for Natural Gas Flow Meters
Jun 27 2008
Minister Van der Hoeven visited the Egyptian Minister of Petroleum in Cairo to discuss the interests of Dutch industry in Egypt. NMi was part of a delegation with other companies including Vopak, Gasunie, Port of Rotterdam, 4Gas and DHV, all interested in forming business ties with the fast growing Egyptian Oil and Gas sector.
Minister Van der Hoeven was well prepared and introduced NMi as a global leading metrology institute to the Egyptian delegates. Measuring Oil & Gas flows on industrial scale is one of the core activities of NMi.
Pieter van Breugel introduced the partners after signing the LoU: âWe signed this LoU together with the Egyptian Maintenance Company EMC and the Natural Gas Holding Company EGAS. With the involvement of NMi as independent metrology institute in ECF, a traceable gas measurement infrastructure is guaranteed for Egypt and the region.â
Paul van Enckevort, Manager Sales and Product Development of NMi added: âThis is the result of two years of lobbying and discussing. By signing this Letter of Understanding we have achieved an important milestone and we are now ready to proceed together with EMC to focus on the implementation of technical details.â
Jacques Schmit, Business Development Manager of NMi explained the project: âIn the first phase, we will facilitate the development of the Egyptian Calibration Facility (ECF) from a metrological point of view, by providing know-how, technology and training. In the operational phase NMi will be responsible for calibrations through a Metrology Management Contract with ECF, leading to NMi certificates.â
The Egyptian Calibration Facility will be located in Badr City near Cairo, Egypt. Natural gas flow meters varying from 7 to 45 Bar will be calibrated in this facility.
