Transmission Pipelines

Natural gas is transported from the gas processing plant to underground storage sites, industrial users and city gate metering stations via a large network of pipelines.

As the natural gas travels along the pipeline, it passes through metering points where the gas is sold from one party to another – this is the custody transfer point.

Understanding the gas quality at custody transfer points is essential. Measurements required include moisture content, sulfur compound concentration, hydrocarbon dew point temperature, and specific gravity.

With extensive experience in the natural gas industry, we provide effective solutions that ensure gas quality compliance with tariff or contract limits. Our multiple measurement capabilities include moisture and hydrogen sulfide analyzers, manual and automatic hydrocarbon dew point temperature analyzers, and gravitometers.

    Custody Transfer

    At the custody transfer location, natural gas is sold from one party to another, and is a measurement point on the network. The quality of the natural gas is contractually defined at the custody transfer point, including limits on moisture and hydrogen sulfide content in the gas, threshold for hydrocarbon dew point temperature, required heating value of the gas, and expected gas composition.

    Transmission Pipelines

    Natural gas is transported along the value chain from processing to end users via a vast network of pipelines. To ensure the integrity of the mechanical infrastructure and to meet contract or tariff limits, highly accurate, fast-response moisture measurements are required. In some cases, analysis to standards, such as ASTM D1142, are needed.
