Abstract: Precision Measurement Inc., a subsidiary of Badger Meter Inc., has developed the Energy Meter for direct energy flowrate measurement in natural gas pipelines. The Energy Meter is now in test at three sites in the U.S.A. and one site in Europe, in a project sponsored by the Gas Research Institute. The objective of the field tests is to measure and verify the technical properties of the development under actual field service conditions. In each field test site, the Energy Meter is continuously compared to existing gas flow measurement devices. Each test site has different existing meter configurations allowing a broad scope of comparison and testing experience. Analysis of performance, precision, and operation is discussed. The results indicate that good operating accuracy and precision can be achieved using an Energy Meter.
