Custody Transfer Measurement of LNG

 

Day Two - Friday, July 26, 2019, 9 am - 5 pm

 

Outline

Unlike other seaborne bulk cargoes, value of LNG is assessed based on its energy. This tradition necessitates the custody transfer measurement of LNG to include not only measurement of liquid volume but also determination of its unit heat value. This course is designed for professionals who are involved in various aspects of LNG trading and shipping.

 

Topics

General information

Property of LNG

LNG carriers

Gauging on board

Measurement of liquid level

Measurement of temperature

Measurement of gas pressure

Custody transfer measurement system

Tank gauge table

Determination of liquid volume

Sampling and analysis

Configuration of sampling systems

Sampling procedure

Configuration of gas chromatograph

Analysis procedure

Calculation of energy

Density and unit heat value of liquid

Energy of return gas

Energy transferred

Volume-based unit heat value
