Natural gas sampling is performed for many reasons. Primarily sampling is performed to determine total gas composition, gas quality, and gas value. The three techniques normally used to obtain gas samples are continuous composite sampling, continuous online sampling, or spot sampling. This paper will discuss the various spot sampling techniques, proper sampling implementation, and equipment utilized to obtain spot samples.
