Measurements of pressure and temperature are made for many reasons and by several methods. This paper will focus on measurements made during gas production and transportation and suggests criteria to be used in the selection and installation of the instruments used to measure these physical properties.

In this industry, pressure and temperature measurements are primarily being made for three (3) reasons: Safety

The properties of gas follow the Ideal Gas Law:
