Regulations on measurement of natural gas for commercial purposes

Chapter I General provisions

Part 1 Purpose and scope

1. The regulations on measurement of natural gas for commercial purposes (further - the Provision), determine conditions under which measurement of the natural gas made, transferred, distributed, delivered and consumed in points of commercial accounting is performed.

2. Requirements of the Provision are applied without discrimination to legal relationship in which producers, system operators, suppliers and final consumers participate, including in case of issue of permissions to connection to network of natural gas, during the designing, installation and operation of the measuring equipment.

3. The provision is applied in case of:

1) establishment of points of accounting and the minimum technical requirements to the measuring equipment installed in each category of points of commercial accounting;

2) measurement of transfer of natural gas, including in the context of the cross-border exchange distributed, delivered or the consumed natural gas;

3) determination of functions and obligations of the producers, system operators, suppliers and final consumers connected with measurement of natural gas for commercial purposes;

4) collection and submission by system operators of data on the measuring equipment and indications of the measuring equipment, for the purpose of the statement of invoices for the services rendered by operators and for the natural gas used by final consumers;

5) to requirements about functioning to class of accuracy of the measuring equipment;

6) to procedure for collection, processing, preserving and submission of indications of the measuring equipment to applicants, including system operators, suppliers and final consumers.

Part 2 the Used concepts

4. For the purpose of this provision the terms determined by the Natural Gas Act No. 108/2016, the Law on metrology No. 19/2016 are used (further - the Law No. 19/2016), and also the following terms and determinations:

activities for measurement of natural gas - set of the actions (measurement as such, removal of indications of the measuring equipment, data collection about indications of the measuring equipment, determination of amounts of natural gas, management the database about the measuring equipment and submission of information connected with measurement of natural gas) performed by system operators in connection with measurement and registration of amounts of natural gas for commercial purposes;

the calculator of expense - the device of measurement of the integrated amount or energy, proceeding from value of the expense in actual practice brought to standard conditions;

physical and chemical characteristics of natural gas - characteristics which determine quality of natural gas which numerical values are used for calculation of the amount/amounts of natural gas;

accuracy class - general characteristic of the gas-measuring equipment which is determined by limiting main and additional admissible errors, and also some other properties which influence the accuracy of the measurements performed by the measuring equipment;

standard conditions - parameters to which the natural gas measured in operating conditions (t temperature = 20 °C (293,15 0K) is given; atmospheric pressure of Patm. = 101, 325 KPA { 1,01325 of bars }, { 760 mm hg });

normal conditions - parameters to which the natural gas measured in operating conditions is given (temperature of tn=0 °C {273,15 0K}, Pn pressure. = 101, 325 KPA { 1,01325 of bars. });

the amount converter (the proofreader, the calculator of expense) - the electronic or mechanical device which is connected/built in to the calculating mechanism of one measuring equipment which automatically will transform the amount of natural gas measured in operating conditions (depending on actual parameters of natural gas - the working pressure and temperature) the amount of natural gas provided to standard conditions;

the converter - the device established on the gas meter which automatically will transform the amount measured in measurement conditions to amount in standard conditions;
