KROHNE and Gazprom have signed a cooperation agreement aimed at establishing an Industrial Liquid Metrological Centre (ILMC). The calibration facility will be placed in New Urengoy, district of Yamalo-Nenetskiy (Tyumen region), Russian Federation.
Gazprom, as well as its affiliate companies, intend to refer to this centre with regard to calibration procedures. The ILMC is meant to be an industrial metrological testing scheme for liquid volume and mass measuring equipment (water, hydrocarbon raw material and inhibitors) of Gazprom according to GOST standards.
Krohne will not only bring in its extensive know-how in calibration, but also the complete flow instrumentation. Krohne ultrasonic flow meters for custody transfer have been used as reference by Gazprom for several years. Krohne will deliver the reference meters for the ILMC facility in order to guarantee maximum accuracy and reliability. This way, Krohne sets the standard for stationary, mobile and small-sized piston-provers, volume meters and ultrasonic flow meters for Gazprom and the affiliated companies.
