Ultrasonic Meter Recalibration Program
Author(s): Stephen English
Abstract/Introduction:
Ever since multi-path ultrasonic meters were approved for custody transfer measurement of natural gas, there has been on ongoing debate as to whether they should be periodically recalibrated, and if so, how frequently? Atmos Energy Corporation has chosen to be proactive in answering these questions for themselves by implementing an ultrasonic meter recalibration program. This program uses a fleet of dedicated ultrasonic meters that allows for the exchange and recalibration of its installed ultrasonic meters with minimal impact on operations.

A Proposed Standard For Natural Gas Viscosities
Author(s): William Johansen
Abstract/Introduction:
The natural gas flowmetering community does not have a standard method to calculate viscosity. The error levels in current viscosity models frequently exceed 25 %. Moreover, one of the prevalent methods to compute viscosity produces values that are consistently smaller than measured values. This bias inviscosity computations leads to biases in the Reynolds number which ultimately result in flow measurement biases that can be 0.1% or more. The errors in Reynolds numbers have also led to numerous flowmeters being calibrated in the wrong Reynolds number range. We demonstrate that limiting the Reynolds number errors to 5 % is sufficient to reduce flowmeter measurement biases to less than 0.028 % for commonly used flowmeters e.g., critical flow Venturis, orifice meters). We show that the NIST-maintained database REFPROP 8.1 and a viscosity model developed at CEESI both agree with published natural gas viscosity data within 5% or less at temperatures from 270 K to 330 K and at pressures up to 12 MPa for a wide range of natural gas mixtures. Based on these results we propose that REFPROP 8.1 be adopted as the standard for calculating natural gas viscosities.

Low Pressure Gas Measurement Using Ultrasonic Technology
Author(s): Volker Herrmann,Toralf Dietz,John Lansing
Abstract/Introduction:
The utilization of ultrasonic metering as a cost effective form of measurement has grown dramatically over the past 10 years. A growing portion of this market is in custody transfer applications. This growth is primarily due to growing acceptance in industry, advances in the technology, extensive self diagnostic capabilities and industry /regulatory standards and recommendations related to their use in custody transfer applications.

Predicting Ultrasonic Meter Error In Dirty Service Conditions
Author(s): James N. Witte
Abstract/Introduction:
Ultrasonic meters have been in common use since AGA Report 9(1) was published in 1998. During the past twelve years there have been significant advances made by the ultrasonic meter manufacturers to develop several diagnostics to maintain the integrity of installed meters. These diagnostics are necessary to evaluate the proper function of the meters and may also provide indications of developing trouble for which the operators may take remedial action.

New Leak Detection Vehicle( Mounted) Technology Implementation In Kuwait Oil Company
Author(s): Mishal Al-Mishwat
Abstract/Introduction:
Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) recently implemented a vehicle mounted leak detection system that accurately measures gas leaks at a 100 feet radius over its cross-country pipeline corridors and the resident domestic network. This technology allows for accurate methane detection with a minimum concentration of 1 ppm. Results are mapped using GPS and represented on Google maps. This technology implementation is part of the KOC pipeline safety program modeled on the US DOT regulations.

An Approach To Evaluating Gas Quality Issues For Biogas Derived From Animal Waste And Other Sources
Author(s): Kimberly Kemp
Abstract/Introduction:
In the fall of 2008 a California dairy farm began delivering biogas, methane derived from anaerobic digestion of organic waste, into Pacific Gas & Electric Companys (PG&Es) natural gas transmission system. Many other pipeline and local distribution companies (LDCs) are being approached by biogas developers. This paper describes the approach taken by PG&E to evaluate gas quality concerns, especially those for which no current standards or guidelines exist. It also details the collaborative efforts needed to develop an assessment process for bringing biogas into the market with assurance of pipeline integrity and end use safety.

Avoiding Worries About Siloxanes In Fermentation Gases By Formulating Specifications
Author(s): Howard Levinsky
Abstract/Introduction:
The desire to reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases and enhance the sustainability of the energy supply has resulted in a drive towards increasing the use of renewable fuels. Biofuels are enjoying much attention in this respect, and are being (re)introduced as fuels for both transportation and stationary energy conversion. Given the penetration of natural gas in power generation, industrial, commercial andresidential markets in the US and Europe, using the natural gas infrastructure to deliver biogases is an attractive means of ensuring a high penetration of renewable energy in all aspects of end use. However,biogases contain compounds that are not ordinarily present in natural gas, and these chemical species can have adverse effects on the integrity of the infrastructure, the safety and performance of end-use equipment, and even on the health of the end user. In the companion paper in these proceedings, we give an overview of the various species and their impact on the different components of the gas chain. In this paper we discuss one particular chemical compound that does not occur in natural gas, siloxanes.

AGA Plastic Materials Committee White Paper On Peelable Pipe
Author(s): Gene Palermo, Jeremy Bowman
Abstract/Introduction:
Plastic pipes are the primary materials used for the distribution of natural gas, and this success has been based on single material solid wall plastic pipes. Based to a large extent on European technology, there are now an increasing number of multi-layered plastic pipes being used in the gas industry and in other applications. This AGA White Paper describes a multi-layered peelable pipe, which consists of a pressure rated core polyethylene (PE) pipe, and a sacrificial peelable skin made from polypropylene (PP). Additionally, information is provided on peelable pipe structure, skin adhesion, electrofusion (EF) joint performance when EF fittings are joined to the PE core pipe, and details on the new ASTM D 2513 Annex A7 for peelable pipe. This new multi-layer pipe retains all the positive values of solid wall PE pipe, but provides two benefits. First, the outer PP skin may be peeled off before making an electrofusion joint to expose the virgin PE core, thus eliminating the need to scrape the pipe. Second, the outer PP skin provides additional protection to the core PE pipe during robust installation techniques, such as, horizontal directional drilling, pipe bursting and insertion renewal.

Increasing Importance Of Rapid Crack Propagation Rcp() For Gas Piping Applications - Industry Status
Author(s): Gene Palermo, Dane Chang
Abstract/Introduction:
Polyethylene (PE) is the primary material used for gas piping applications. Because of its flexibility, ease of joining and long-term durability, along with lower installed cost and lack of corrosion, gas companies want to install PE pipe instead of steel pipe in larger diameters and higher pressures. As a result, rapid crack propagation (RCP) is becoming a more important property of PE materials. This paper will review the two key ISO test methods that are used to determine RCP performance (full scale test and small scale steady state test), and compare the values obtained with various PE materials on a generic basis. The RCP performance in these test methods is significantly superior for both bimodal PE 2708 and bimodal PE 4710 compared to the unimodal materials. We will also review the status of RCP requirements in industry standards such as ISO 4437, ASTM D 2513 and CSA B137.4. In addition, we will review progress within CSA Z662 Clause 12 and the AGA Plastic Materials Committee to develop industry guidelines based on the values obtained in the RCP tests to design against an RCP incident. Finally, we will discuss how the superior RCP performance of bimodal PE 2708 and bimodal PE 4710 materials has led to a higher 0.45 design factor for gas applications in Canada. These materials are marked PE 2708 PLUS and PE 4710 PLUS to indicate they can use the 0.45 design factor.
