Natural Gas Specifications
How is the quantity of gas delivered established?
We use around 80 gas chromatographs spread across our grid to establish the quantity of energy supplied. These chromatographs continuously measure the composition and therefore the precise energy content of the natural gas. The gas chromatographs are located at points where the direction of the natural gas downstream is clearly established. Some natural gas receiving stations at connected companies are also fitted with gas chromatographs.
The data from the gas chromatographs is combined with measurements for, amongst other things, pressure, temperature and volume in the natural gas receiving stations at the connected companies in order to calculate the quantity of energy supplied.
