Welcome to the Metrology for LNG-site!
This website is dedicated to the European Research projects “Metrology for LNG” and intends to provide information to and bring together stakeholders from the LNG industry.
In the navigation menu we provide you information about these project aims and results obtained, about the partners involved and industrial stakeholders that are contributing to the project.
So, why is this important?
- Whenever there is trade, there are measurements involved to quantify the transfer of goods.
- Whenever there are measurements, there are errors and uncertainties involved.
- Metrology is all about providing standards that are internationally accepted and allow one to quantify the error or uncertainty of any measurement. Without a quantification of the associated uncertainty any measured value has no meaning; one would be left in the dark.
This project aims to improve and develop the metrology for LNG custody transfer measurements leading to smaller measurement uncertainties, reduction of financial risks of transactions and more transparency in the trade of LNG.
This project is a so-called Joint Research Project (JRP) and carried out as part of the European Metrology Research Program (EMRP) that is jointly supported by the European Commission and the participating countries within the European Association of National Metrology Institutes (EURAMET e.V.).
