Manual of Petroleum Measurement Standards Chapter 12.2 - Calculation of Petroleum Quantities Using Dynamic Measurement Methods and Volumetric Correction Factors

active, Most Current
Organization: API
Publication Date: 1 July 2021
Status: active
Page Count: 69
scope:

This document provides standardized calculation methods for the quantification of liquids, regardless of the point of origin or destination or the units of measure required by governmental customs or statute. The criteria contained in this document allow different entities using various computer languages on different computer hardware (or manual calculations) to arrive at output results within a defined tolerance within this document, using the same input data.

The document rigorously specifies the equations for computing correction factors, rules for rounding, calculation sequence, and discrimination levels to be employed in the calculations. No deviations from these specifications shall be permitted since the intent of this document is to serve as a rigorous standard. This document also covers multiple calculations as required by dynamic, online, integrated, continuous flow measurement.
