With the increased use of Natural Gas as a fuel, and higher natural gas prices buyers and sellers of natural gas are seriously looking at ways to improve their natural gas measurement and reduce the error in natural gas measurement.
A 6” Turbine or Ultrasonic meter operating at 1,000 Psi will move 100 MMSCF/Day. An error in measurement of only one tenth of one percent (0.1%) on 100 Million Standard Cubic Feet (MMSCF) of Natural Gas selling at $4.00 per Thousand Standard Cubic Feet (MSCF) will cause an over or under billing of $400.00. Therefore the error in a year is ($400 X 365) $146,000.00. This will more than pay for a proving or verifying system.
