    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    CONTAINED IN VOL. 05.06, 2017 Defines procedures for calculating heating value, relative density, and compressibility factor at base conditions (14.696 psia and 60 degrees F (15.6 degrees C)) for natural gas mixtures from compositional analysis.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    1.1This practice covers procedures for calculating heating value, relative density, and compressibility factor at base conditions (14.696 psia and 60°F (15.6°C)) for natural gas mixtures from compositional analysis.2 It applies to all common types of utility gaseous fuels, for example, dry natural gas, reformed gas, oil gas (both high and low Btu), propane-air, carbureted water gas, coke oven gas, and retort coal gas, for which suitable methods of analysis as described in Section 6 are available. Calculation procedures for other base conditions are given.

    1.2The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The SI units given in parentheses are for information only.

    1.3This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

    1.4This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
