Installing a Custody Transfer Natural Gas Metering Station


Thread Starter


I'm looking to install a Custody Transfer natural gas metering station; preferred meters are:
SeniorSonic (Daniel)
Sentinel (GE - Panametrics) &
Altosonic V12.

For a 6 in. line, max. pressure 500 psig, temp. 120F, available pipe straight run is over 50D. Gas is 90% methane, moisture and sulfur free... Anybody please give me any guess about the approx. cost of metering system, if above meters are installed in addition to flow conditioning and flow totalization equipment.
Hello James,

are there any other corrosive contents or CO2 in the gas?
What about the flow rate?

Any special requirements like offshore painting, retractable transducers under line pressure, temperature below -25°C or special ex-requirements?
