LNG analysis and sampling solutions

For LNG custody transfer it is now common practice to determine the composition and gross calorific value of delivered LNG by direct online analysis plus indirect lab analysis methods. The handling of the LNG before analyzing can have significant effect on the representivity of the sample. A sample which is not representative results in incorrect measurement which can have a significant financial impact. Hobré Instruments successfully supplied systems for these extreme conditions. This project scope was realized by:

  • Take-off probe and vaporizer
  • Automatic and spot sampling system
  • Spot sampling system
  • Wobbe index analyzer
  • Process gas chromatograph
  • Sample conditioning system
