Seminar and Study Tour on gas metering stations and data recording, 17-19 June, Vilnius, Lithuania

Objective

Technology transfer was the focus of a highly targeted seminar and study tour organised by INOGATE at the request of the gas companies of Azerbaijan, Georgia and Tajikistan. This multi-purpose event helped five key delegates gain an in-depth understanding of EU best practices in the operation of gas metering stations and related data collection and processing.

Through its Ad Hoc Expert Facility (AHEF), INOGATE is able to meet specific requests of its Partner Countries for information and knowledge, leading to the exchange of experience and know-how. The three gas companies wanted to learn more about how to develop methodological procedures for the operation and maintenance of the measuring equipment in their metrology stations. Another key aspect of the study tour was to provide information on how to certify the accuracy of the equipment for the measurements of gas flow by accredited companies and how to develop internationally acceptable methods for recording and storing measurements.

The seminar focused on the legislation which regulates gas accounting and metrology in Europe, measuring equipment, certification, inspection, periodicity, applicable standards and accredited laboratories; gas flows in the transmission system, gas losses, gas consumption for technological needs and calculations; the measuring equipment used by European System Operators (ESOs) in border metering stations; gas measurement systems, operation, accuracy and maintenance in accordance with European practices; and European methodologies for recording and storing data.
