Abstract: Mass measurement is used when the combination of hydrocarbons are too complex for general volumetric measurement to be used. Volumetric measurements require temperature and pressure corrections to net to the 60 F and equilibrium pressure basis. These corrections tables are not available for the complex combinations of hydrocarbons. fi typical product combination requiring mass measurement would be Ethane/Propane. Outputs from gasoline plants where liquids are recovered from natural gas represent another mass measurement application. A simple mass measurement system would consist of a meter and a density recorder. the following relationship outlines the mass measurement calculations for the simple system.
