RP3.2-07: Metering and gas quality monitoring of future fuel blends
This project identified the limits of current knowledge of measurement technology and pipeline monitoring systems with respect to the introduction of future fuels into the natural gas pipeline transmission network.
Properties of the blended gas are different and existing measurement of flow rate and composition may not be adequate to ensure gas is within specification to ensure that the billing is correct. Accurate measurement is required to maintain consumer confidence in gas supply, and to comply with the requirements under the National Gas Law. This research helped to:

|Outcomes / Impact||
This project provides the gas and transmission pipelines industry with an improved understanding of the flow-rate of gas, correct pricing, and confidence in product delivery if hydrogen is blended into the natural gas. This information helps industry to assess whether existing metering facilities in Australia’s transmission networks are capable of effectively managing future fuel applications, and indicate whether any modifications and/or additions are necessary.
The developed knowledge has informed the Austarlian standards for developping a handbook of “Blending Hydrogen into Natural Gas Pipelines and Distribution Systems”.
