Abstract Preview

ISO 6578:2017 specifies the calculation procedure to convert the volume of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) under the conditions at the time of measurement to the equivalent volume of liquid or vapour at the standard condition, i.e. 15 °C and 101,325 kPaA, or to the equivalent mass or energy (calorific content). It applies to the quantities of refrigerated hydrocarbon liquids stored in or transferred to/from tanks and measured under static storage conditions. Calculation of pressurized gases is out of the scope of ISO 6578:2017.
