In June 2017 the third phase of the LNG project has started, LNG III. The aim of this project is the large scale roll-out of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) and Liquefied Biogas (LBG) as a transport fuel. To make this roll-out reliable, sustainable and robust, the development of measurement traceability for large scale LNG and LBG custody transfer applications is essential. These custody transfer measurements of flow and composition need to be underpinned with a clear and traceable metrological infrastructure.
One of the major components of the LNG project is the flow calibration facility currently being constructed at the Rotterdam Port area in the Netherlands, see the figure. It will provide an excellent platform for testing and validation of LNG flow metering technologies suitable for refuelling and bunkering applications.
