Traceability in LNG measurement

Welcome to the Metrology for LNG website

This website is dedicated to the European Research project1 “Metrology for LNG” and intends to provide information to and bring together stakeholders from the LNG industry.

In the navigation menu we provide you information about the project aims and results obtained, about the partners involved and industrial stakeholders that are contributing to the project.

Registered users have access to all summary reports, workshop presentations, photograph sections and can subscribe to project newsletters. If you are interested to become even more closely linked to the project please read the Advisory group section and contact the project coordinator.

  • Whenever there is trade, there are measurements involved to quantify the transfer of goods.
  • Whenever there are measurements, there are errors and uncertainties involved.
  • Metrology is all about providing standards that are internationally accepted and allow one to quantify the error or uncertainty of any measurement.
  • Without a quantification of the associated uncertainty any measured value has no meaning; one would be left in the dark.
  • This project aims to improve and develop the metrology for LNG custody transfer measurements leading to smaller measurement uncertainties, reduction of financial risks of transactions and more transparency in the trade of LNG.

Cordially yours,
