Abstract: Most of us are familiar with the orifice meter and the orifice chart. We recognize that the chart is the key to determining the amount of gas used or produced. However, somewhere between the meter and the volume statement the Information on the chart must be Interpreted and calculated. It Is important to bear in mind that the orifice chart does not contain all the Information necessary for that final volume. Gas measurement would be quite simple if all we had to do was go into the field, read a little black box, assign a monetary value to the amount and then send a check or a bill. Unfortunately, there Is no single instrument which can measure all of the different types of information needed to calculate a volume or an MMBTU value. Some of the Information which is required and the associated instruments used to capture that data are:
