Natural Gas - Sampling Guidelines
|Publication Date:||1 June 1997|
|ICS Code (Natural gas):||75.060|
The purpose of this document is to provide concise guidelines for the collection, conditioning and handling of representative samples of processed natural gas streams. It also contains guidelines for sampling strategy, probe location and the handling and design of sampling equipment.
It considers spot, composite (incremental) and continuous sampling systems.
This document gives consideration to constituents such as oxygen, hydrogen sulfide, air, nitrogen and carbon dioxide in the gas stream.
This document does not include sampling of liquid streams or streams with multiphase flow.
Traces of liquid, such as glycol and compressor oil, if present, are assumed to be intrusive and not a part of the gas to be sampled. Their removal is desirable to protect the sampling and analytical equipment from contamination.
This document can be used for custody transfer measurement systems and allocation measurement systems.
