With respect to quantity conversion calculations used in the processing and sale of gasoline, diesel, LPG and ethanol, Brazil defines its own national measurement standards with which oil, gas, and energy companies operating in Brazil must comply. QuantityWare supports all such standards, as described in the new consulting note 000117.
With note 000116 (available in Q2 2024), QuantityWare will release its BCG implementations of AGA Report No 8. Part 1 and 2 for BCG MQCI calculations for industrial gases (e.g. hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, argon, carbon dioxide, …) .
This important gas product support extension of BCG is driven by a strongly rising industry demand (e.g. helium production, nitrogen processing in gas plants, CO2 CCS processing & monitoring etc.).
It is made possible by the recently delivered and revised BCG implementations of AGA Report No 8. Part 1 and 2 – as part of the BCS 30A CSP03 / 30B CSP02 release.
The QuantityWare Bulk Calculations Solution 3.0 (BCS 30B) has successfully completed its certification as the only “SAP® Certified Integration with RISE with S/4HANA Cloud” quantity conversion and governance solution available for the SAP Oil, Gas & Energy solution.
Thus, BCS 30B has now been released by QuantityWare for productive usage with the SAP Oil, Gas & Energy Solution on S/4HANA 2023.
With support for revised natural gas and new natural gas & hydrogen mixtures standard versions, usability enhancements and minor corrections, these CSPs (CSP03 for BCS 30A and CSP02 for BCS 30B) also contain support for anhydrous ammonia and revised South American standards; See the release notes in our Knowledge Base for further details. Registered users can find all CSP files in the DataLounge within our service portal for download.
To coincide with this CSP release, we have also updated, editorially revised and re-released virtually all documentation and consulting and working papers in a new, modern format.
In October 2023, the API has issued Errata 1 for API MPMS Chapter 11.2.5, A Simplified Vapor Pressure Correlation for Commercial NGLs, 2nd Edition, December 2020.
The recommended Table 1 change is implemented with QuantityWare BCS 3.0 and available to all QuantityWare BCP and BCG customers.
To support the Energy industries’ extension and transformation, QuantityWare now supports Hydrogen in its BCG product, for which an additional supplement is charged.
The scale of this charge can be found on our Pricing page.
Changes in the Usage Questionnaire supporting this supplement will be released shortly.
ASTM D2962 “Standard Practise for Calculating Volume-Temperature Correction for Coal-Tar Pitches” has been revised and issued as ASTM D2962-23.
QuantityWare has carefully analyzed this new version and confirms that BCP implementations of this standard are compliant with ASTM D2962-23.
From October 16 to October 20, the QuantityWare BCP certification training took place. The highly interactive BCP training course covers the full capabilities of the QuantityWare BCP product within the BCS solution.
After course completion, all five delegates presented their configuration results to QuantityWare experts. QuantityWare welcomes two BCP certified customer experts and three more BCP certified consultants to our growing BCS network.
The dates for the 2024 trainings are already published on our website (https://www.quantityware.com/our-solution/training-courses/).
ASTM D633 – Standard Correction for Road Tar – has been withdrawn by ASTM in July 2023 without replacement.
This will be reflected in our BCS solution via appropriate documentation of the relevant template conversion groups.
Existing implementations will not be changed; customers utilizing this standard and who need to change their implementation (e.g. due to new commercial or legal requirements) may contact their certified BCP consultants or QuantityWare support directly for advice.
Today QuantityWare has published the Release Notes for the next BCS 3.0 CSP, which will be shipped in Q4 2023. The Release Notes document can be found here.
