The planned delivery date for the next BCS 3.0 CSP (CSP02 on ECC 600, CSP01 on S4/HANA) has been set to Q4 2019. This CSP will contain all developments and template extensions of BCS supported standards updates and revisions. In detail, ASTM D1555-2016, ISO 6578:2017, AGA Report No. 8 – 2017 and ISO 6976:2016 require such continuous improvement developments and template data extensions as described in the individual news items.
It is recommended by the American Petroleum Institute (API) (Section “Natural and Drip Gasolines” on page 7 in BCP Supported Standards) to calculate Condensate with the main oil CTPL standard API MPMS Chapter 11.1 (1980/2004) – ASTM D1250-xx(yy) (current version 08(13)). This major oil CTPL standard is supplied in our BCP product, but not in BCG.
To support the industries’ need to perform extensive calculations for a fair price, we have introduced special pricing for the additional purchase of a BCP license to compliment a BCG license exclusively for the calculation of Condensate. BCG Customers receive a 30% discount on the appropriate BCP license as a second product (valid for all customers) and specifically for the exclusive use of condensate calculations, we offer a further 50% discount on that BCP price.
Support for this complexity in the licensing questionnaire will be added as soon as possible.
