API MPMS Chapter 11.2.4 – Temperature Correction for the Volume of NGL and LPG Tables 23E, 24E, 53E, 54E 59E, and 60E” has been issued as a second edition in June 2019. It supersedes various historical ASTM and GPA standards, as well as the API/ASTM/GPA TP-27 (first edition API MPMS Chapter 11.2.4). The new GPA standard designation of this edition is GPA 8217. QuantityWare is currently analyzing this new edition with respect to calculation changes. The result of this analysis and plans for potential new implementation developments will be published in a separate news item in March 2020.
The Certification Training Schedule for our BCP and BCG training courses is now available for 2020.
For both training courses, online quotation and registration is possible.

The QuantityWare Bulk Calculations Solution 3.0B has successfully completed its certification as the only “SAP® Certified – Integration with SAP® S/4HANA” quantity conversion and governance solution available for the SAP Oil & Gas solution; thus BCS 3.0B has now been released by QuantityWare for productive usage on SAP Oil & Gas on S/4HANA 1909.
The certification process for QuantityWare BCS 30B on SAP S/4HANA 1909 has been started. We expect it to be concluded by the end of 2019.
Certification will be posted in a news item when achieved.
ASTM D1250 has been issued as a new version with the designation ASTM D1250-19. This version is necessary due to the publication of API MPMS Chapter 11.1 Addendum 2 (May 2019 – see news item). 10 changes are listed in Addendum 2 which are classified as “minor” modifications in ASTM D1250-19. One of these “minor” modifications requires that final densities and volumes should be calculated with unrounded volume correction factors (CTL, CPL and CTPL). This modification affects calculation results of the current implementation and thus requires an advanced development such that the calculation models assigned to API MPMS Chapter 11.1 can be configured (via a switch in the conversion group settings) to apply unrounded volume correction factors. This advanced development will be shipped via a QuantityWare note in Q2 2020.
QuantityWare has created Note 000086 – Support and Release (Lifecycle) details (see here) as a single source of information for existing and prospective customers regarding this topic.
The QuantityWare Bulk Calculations Solution 3.0B has successfully completed its certification as the only “SAP® Certified – Integration with SAP® S/4HANA” quantity conversion and governance solution available for the SAP Oil & Gas solution; thus BCS 3.0B has now been released by QuantityWare for productive usage on SAP Oil & Gas on S/4HANA 1809.
A new Addendum 2 has been issued in May 2019 for API MPMS Chapter 11.1 – “Temperature and Pressure Volume Correction Factors for Generalized Crude Oils, Refined Products, and Lubricating Oils” . QuantityWare will carefully analyze the numerous changes delivered with this second addendum and assess potential implications on existing implementations within the next months. Additional guidance will then be communicated in a second news item in Q4 2019 to our customers.
“Miscellaneous Hydrocarbon Product Properties – Denatured Ethanol Density and Volume Correction Factors” has been issued as a third edition in May 2019. QuantityWare has analyzed this new version and confirms that existing BCP implementations of API MPMS Chapter 11.3.3 comply with this latest version. In addition, this new edition provides pressure correction logic, which is relevant if ethanol is metered at elevated pressures. QuantityWare will thus define and deliver an advanced development, which will enable API MPMS 11.3.3 CPL calculations.
