This standard was last reviewed and confirmed in 2019. Therefore this version remains current.
This International Standard describes the principles of, and general requirements for, two gravimetric methods for
the determination of the potential hydrocarbon liquid content of natural gas, or similar gas, at a given pressure and
temperature. Two methods are specified in this International Standard to determine the amount of condensate in a
_ Method A: a manual weighing method;
_ Method B: an indirect automatic weighing method based on the indication of the pressure difference caused by
the accumulation of condensate in a vertical tube.
The manual weighing method is a reference method for the indirect automatic method (Method B). The indirect
automatic method (Method B) is suitable for semi-continuous control.
NOTE Unless otherwise specified, gas volumes are in cubic metres at 273,15 K and 101,325 kPa.
