AGA, API report advances use of Coriolis flowmeters
Micro Motion Coriolis meters have been identified by the American Gas Association and American Petroleum Institute as a "recognized technology" to measure natural gas flow.
AGA/API report identifies Micro Motion Coriolis flowmeters as a “recognized technology” for measuring natural gas flow.
Emerson ’s Micro Motion Coriolis meters have been identified by the American Gas Association and American Petroleum Institute as a “recognized technology” to measure natural gas flow. The news also helps boost Coriolis flowmeter market acceptance, as suggested in the recent joint AGA/API report, Measurement of Natural Gas by Coriolis Meter (No.11/API MPMS Chapter 14.9), which guides the application of this technology for natural gas flow measurement. Four years in the making, the document reflects best practices for Coriolis use in natural gas production, processing, transmission, storage, distribution, and end-use fuel measurement.
“This marks yet another turning point in the acceptance of Coriolis as a choice for critical fluid measurements in today’s competitive business environment,” said Gene Shanahan, president of Emerson’s Micro Motion flowmeters business. “AGA Report No. 11 provides a third-party reference for buyers and sellers of natural gas to boost measurement accuracies and economics. With natural gas prices at all-time highs, most industries are feeling the pinch of high feedstock and fuel prices; the use of Coriolis meters help in assuring long-term reliable and accurate transactions from producers to users—optimizing costs and increasing profits.”
