Measurement accuracy is essential in the sale, purchase and handling of petroleum products. It avoids disputes between buyer and seller and provides control over losses. Accurate measurement involves the use of standard equipment and procedures. The Petroleum Measurement Committee of the Institute of Petroleum is responsible for the production and maintenance of standards and guides covering the various aspects of static and dynamic measurement of petroleum. These are issued as separate Parts and Sections of the Institute's "Petroleum Measurement Manual". Automatic pipeline sampling is a measurement activity that is still being developed. This Section of the Petroleum Measurement Manual has been prepared in the format of a Guide in order to give useful information about the present state of development and to recognise that there are still some problems for which there are as yet no definite answers. This Guide contains edited information from a number of different sources, some as yet unpublished. It attempts to be as up-to-date as the IP Panel can make it, but improved apparatus and better theories continue to appear.
It is hoped that this guide will provide a foundation on which further developments can be built.
