Tuesday, September 17, 2019

10:00 – 10:45 a.m., Salon A
“An Overview of the AGA Gas Quality Management Manual,” Terry Grimley
This class provides an overview of the American Gas Association Gas Quality Management Manual developed by the Transmission Measurement Committee. The manual pulls together a wide range of information and provides context that allows both the expert and the novice to understand the “why, how and what” needed to develop a plan for managing gas quality.

Wednesday, September 18, 2019

8:15 – 9:00 a.m., Westchase 1 & 2
“Overview of Equations of State (EOS),” Adam Hawley
This class discusses the different EOS that are available, the properties that can be obtained from each EOS, and practical uses of EOS software for natural gas pipeline applications. 

9:15 – 11:00 a.m., Salon F
“Effects and Control of Pulsation in Gas Measurement,” Sarah Simons
This class provides an overview of pulsation and describes the effects on orifice, turbine, ultrasonic, and other flow meter types. Methods are described for mitigating pulsation effects at meter installations.

3:15 – 4:00 p.m., Salon E
“Practical Implications of the Geometric Tolerances of API MPMS Chapter 14.3 / AGA Report No. 3 - Part 2,” Terry Grimley
This class provides an overview of the meter design requirements in the American Petroleum Institute (API) Manual of Petroleum Measurement Standards (MPMS) Chapter 14.3, “Orifice Metering of Natural Gas and Other Related Hydrocarbon Fluids,” Part 2, “Specification and Installation Requirements.”  Examples of flow measurement variability for meters meeting the specifications is discussed.

Gas Measurement Fundamentals Series (Separate Registration Required)

All classes held in Salon C

Tuesday, September 17, 2019

1:15 – 2:00 p.m.
“Measurement Accuracy & Uncertainty,” Adam Hawley
This class introduces multiple concepts regarding measurement accuracy and uncertainty and demonstrates those concepts through examples for natural gas flow measurement.

10:15 – 11:00 a.m.
“Ultrasonic Flow Meters (Part 1),” Terry Grimley
This class provides an introduction to flow measurement using transit-time ultrasonic flow meters.  The class covers the essential knowledge that users should have regarding the basic operation of ultrasonic flow meters.

1:15 – 2:00 p.m.
“Ultrasonic Flow Meters (Part 2),” Terry Grimley
This class covers information related to the interface, diagnostics, and operation of ultrasonic meters.

2:15 – 3:00 p.m.
“Coriolis Flow Meters,” Adam Hawley
This class provides basic information on the theory and application of flow measurement using Coriolis meters including an overview of American Gas Association Report No. 11 (Measurement of Natural Gas by Coriolis Meters). Advanced discussions of operational considerations, and diagnostics are also provided.
