LNG composition measurement for baseload custody transfer

High accuracy with lower maintenance for reliable baseload custody transactions

Reliable analysis of LNG composition is challenging during baseload custody transfer. Traditional gas chromatograph (GC)/vaporizer systems can struggle to generate accurate measurements in cryogenic conditions. Because these systems transport vaporized gas to the analyzer, need costly vaporizer maintenance, and require sample conditioning, GCs/vaporizers have higher OPEX. Endress+Hauser’s Raman analyzer system solves these issues.

  • Largely maintenance-free

    with equivalent accuracy as top-performing GC/vaporizers

    Our Raman analyzer systems provide accurate composition measurement of LNG in the liquid phase without the maintenance burden of traditional GC/vaporizer systems. Enjoy a compact analyzer footprint with easy installation and no analyzer consumables or sample conditioning. By avoiding the need to maintain a vaporizer with vacuum-jacketed tubing, Raman can deliver equally accurate results while reducing your overall OPEX.

How we can help

Accurately measure your LNG composition and energy content at key baseload custody transfer measurement points without costly vaporizer installation and maintenance.

  • Utilize a safe, proven LNG measurement technique - verified by the GERG

  • Reduce your carbon footprint - eliminate emissions from sample venting or flaring due to vaporization

  • Measure the full transfer of LNG – immune to LNG flow, pressure, or temperature variations

  • Reduce OPEX - Simplify maintenance with easy annual verification - internal automated calibration; no moving parts or insulated transfer lines to maintain

  • Eliminate consumables such as calibration and carrier gases
