A: Yes. Warren Rogers was born in 1929 in New York City and raised in Ireland. He returned to the U.S. at age 21 with a degree in mechanical engineering from Trinity College in Dublin. He served in the U.S. Navy as an aviator for 23 years, earning a master’s degree in operations research from the Navy Postgraduate School, and a PhD in statistics from Stanford University. He worked for the Center for Naval Analysis, the Naval War College, and as a consultant to the American Petroleum Institute before founding Warren Rogers Associates with Jill Jones in 1979. His work revolutionized the petroleum industry and is the foundation of many of today’s industry-standard practices. We lost our dear friend and cofounder in 2011.

A: Your Warren Rogers analyst will work with you to meet your reporting needs. We can post your reports to your web page or can also ftp or email your reports.
A: Copies of recent compliance test information and a recent meter calibration are required.
A: Warren Rogers would like to provide a continuous reconciliation over a 30 day period, but can provide reports in as few as 6 days.
A: Customers using Warren Rogers’ Continual Reconciliation System get a very accurate calculation of both the net and gross amount of product delivered into their tanks. They can compare these amounts against the volumes that have been recorded by the supplier on their bills of lading. Warren Rogers’ calculated deliveries compensate for temperature effects and elapsed sales that have occurred during the delivery.
Q: If I am using the Continual Reconciliation System, how quickly will I be notified of an operational problem with my fueling system?
A: Every Warren Rogers account has a dedicated analyst that oversees your data daily. If you have issues with theft, blend discrepancies, catastrophic meter failure or any other unusual operating condition, this will be brought to your attention.
A: Unlike conventional gauging systems which have a performance limit of a couple hundred thousand gallons of monthly throughput, our Continual Reconciliation System is certified for complex active tank systems up to 100,000 gallons in capacity and over 2.7 million gallons in monthly throughput. The system can handle manifolded tank systems as well.
Q: Do I need any particular brand of tank gauging system or dispensers to utilize Warren Rogers’ Continual Reconciliation System?
A: Our system can be used with any magnetostrictive ATG and all primary types of dispensers and pump controllers.
A: Once we have your tank system properly characterized, we will apply our patented Meter Drift analysis to identify dispensing positions which are giving away fuel and diminishing fuel margins.
A: Warren Rogers will maintain a record of all unaccounted for removals from your tank system and record these events by date, time, and amount. Many fuel thieves have been caught based upon our analysis of fuel records.
A: In addition to submitting your paper records monthly, one also has the option of submitting data via a secure website or spreadsheet. Call us and we will provide you with instructions for these various options.
A: Many customers with ATGs use ATG data and sales and delivery data from their back office system to gather the data required for SIRA. Because SIRA can provide monitoring for lines as well as tanks, many ATG customers rely on SIRA to provide leak detection for their entire tank system.
