|Publication Date:||1 May 1991|
This publication describes the metering function of a LACT unit and is intended to complement API Specification 11N, Specification for Lease Automatic Custody Transfer (LACT) Equipment. LACT equipment includes a meter (either displacement or turbine), a proving system (either fixed or portable), devices for determining temperature and pressure and for sampling the liquid, and a means of determining nonmerchantable oil. Many of the aspects of the metering function of a LACT unit are considered at length in other parts of this manual and are referenced in 6.1.4.
