The overall aim of this project is to enable the large scale roll-out of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and liquefied biogas (LBG) as a transport fuel. However, an essential part of this is the development of measurement traceability for large scale LNG custody transfer applications. The custody transfer measurements of flow and composition need to be underpinned with a clear and traceable metrological infrastructure, and properties which are important for fuel usage, i.e. the density and the methane number (MN) need to be assessed.
To address this, this project will combine expertise from industry, instrument manufacturers and research institutes in order to establish the necessary test facilities and validation methods. The outcomes of the project will also be implemented in relevant written standards to enable and promote the use of LNG and LBG as a transport fuel.
