IE excels at liquids and gas measurement – IE LACTs connect thousands of wells to truck offload facilities or midstream gathering systems for convenient and accurate takeaway.

We combine process, pumping, and instrumentation know-how with our controls and automation expertise to design custom equipment optimized to your application. We integrate a broad range of pumps, with custom solutions ranging from half-inch meter “mini-LACTs” with turn down capabilities below 100 bpd, to 8” pipeline ACTs exceeding 100,000 bpd or more.  Carbon and stainless-steel options available for crude, NGLs, gas, and produced water, or combinations of any these products.

Our controls and automation team will integrate the flow computer of your choice, while building and programming a custom PLC to meet your exact requirements.
