Global gas demand continues to outpace oil, increasing its contribution to overall energy use. Major upstream developments together with mid-stream transportation systems and downstream feed stock projects continue to increase. As this revolution evolves there will be a dramatic rise in the requirement for high accuracy measurement at every point in the gas value chain.

This value chain can be subdivided into four major categories within which metering is carried out; Gas Production, Gas Transmission, Gas Storage and Gas Distribution

Within these categories there is a huge array of different gas metering applications and a similar number of potential solutions. This can lead to confusion when selecting the optimum solution for the application. Two of the traditional approaches have been to use orifice plates or turbine meters however, newer technologies, in particular ultrasonic and coriolis meters, are being utilized more frequently. The aim of this presentation is to address meter selection and provide pointers to assist engineers within the four major categories listed above.
