The 3rd International «Metrology for LNG» Workshop

The 3rd International «Metrology for LNG» Workshop will take place at FORCE Technology in Brøndby, Denmark on the 19th May 2015.

The workshop is part of the cross-national «Metrology for LNG» research project between 9 metrology institutes, 2 universities, 2 unfunded industry partners and several other collaborators, developing metrological framework to support a healthy growth of LNG trade and new applications.

Metrology for LNG
Custody transfer measurements of LNG is characterized by high uncertainty, compared to measurements of other commodities like oil and gasoline.

One of the goals for the research project is to develop a more precise validation facility for cryogenic measurement systems. The target measurement uncertainty is 0.2%. The system can be used as an alternative route for traceability of LNG volume flow measurements and strengthen the metrological framework.

FORCE Technology will host the 3rd International «Metrology for LNG» Workshop in cooperation with LNG Metrology, VSL, PTB, Shell and others.

Welcome to the Metrology for LNG2 website!

This website is dedicated to the European Research project “Metrology for LNG 2” and intends to provide information to and bring together stakeholders from the LNG industry.

In the navigation menu we provide you information about the 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.

Cordially yours,
Oswin Kerkhof
Project Coordinator
