Standards Update – Brazilian Standard RESOLUÇÃO ANP No 894 / C.N.P. No. 6 – 70

| News

With RESOLUÇÃO ANP No 894 – 2022, RESOLUÇÃO No 6 – 70 has been revoked, and technically put into force again. No changes to the 1970 Tables I(1) and II(2) content and description have been made. Thus, from an implementation point of view, the current Table II solution delivered with BCP 3.0 needs no technical modification. In order to support density corrections based on Table I as well, QuantityWare plans to deliver an extension of the current Table II implementation within an Advanced Development (AD) in Q2 2023. Since the now newly reconfirmed national Brazilian standard are the printed table values (as e.g., ASTM D1250-1952 Table 6), a complete validation of the formula based approach against the all table values is required. See note 000101 and note 000113 for additional details.

Happy Holiday Season and a Good Start Into the New Year!

| News

As the year 2022 is moving towards completion, we would like to thank our customers and allied consultants for their trust in our product and company. Over the last 16 years, we have:

  • served over 100 customers in more than 60 countries
  • supported SAP platforms from legacy ECC to the latest S/4 HANA genres
  • provided the industry with a unique, cohesive ISO 91:2017 – API MPMS quantity conversions solution
  • extended our network of certified consultants – providing independent global support.

We are responsible for the calculation of billions of dollars’ worth of product throughout the industries’ value chain, from the largest E&P companies to the smallest secondary distributors.
Natural gas and hydrogen quantity conversions are the next challenges, and we have already delivered validated solutions for these topics to our steadily growing customer base.
We wish everyone a healthy and relaxing holiday season and a good start into the year 2023.

Hydrogen Blending of Natural Gas

| News

The options, advantages and risks of blending natural gas with hydrogen are currently discussed widely and controversially, e.g. the feasibility within the European gas grid at the transportation and distribution level. From a measurement point of view, the situation has been clarified with the publication of a new research paper by the DVGW. QuantityWare BCG customers thus may now calculate standardized volumes of gases of all possible ratios of hydrogen content within a dry natural gas – and all other required properties – utilizing existing BCG high pressure dry natural gas conversion groups. All details can be found in our new Natural Gas / Hydrogen Mixture FAQ.

Standards Update: ASTM D1555M

| News

Standard ASTM D1555M – Standard Test Method for Calculation of Volume and Weight of Industrial Aromatic Hydrocarbons and Cyclohexane [Metric] – has been revised and issued as a new 2022 version.

QuantityWare has carefully analyzed this new metric version. The analysis has shown that ASTM D1555M-16 template conversion groups, contained in BCP 3.0, are in compliance with this new 2022 version. An online documentation update and updated template conversion groups for the PMC will be delivered with the next BCS CSP.

Standards Update: ASTM D1298

| News

ASTM D1298 – Standard Test Method for Density, Relative Density, or API Gravity of Crude Petroleum and Liquid Petroleum Products by Hydrometer Method – has been reapproved in 2017 and issued as ASTM D1298-12b(2017). QuantityWare BCS implementations comply with this latest ASTM D1298 version, which did not change the correction formulas defined therein. Read Note 000026 for additional configuration information.

Standards Update: Anhydrous Ammonia

| News

A national standard document from Measurement Canada, based on experimental data, is available for the liquid phase anhydrous ammonia product – the experimental data is defined in “The Thermodynamic Properties of Ammonia, by L. Haar and S.J. Gallagher, Journal of Physics Chemistry Ref. Data, Volume 7, No. 3, 1978”. A quantity conversion implementation is now available as part of our BCP solution, which utilizes all VCF table values of this national standard, as an advanced development (AD) with note 000102.
