NCWM to Vote on Natural Gas Measurement

The National Conference on Weights and Measures (NCWM) announced that a special steering committee is recommending that compressed and liquefied natural gas be sold in gasoline and diesel gallon equivalents.

NCWM has been working on creating uniform standards on how to measure and price natural gas in transportation since January. The group has been considering other options, including weight, which would mean that LNG and CNG would be sold in kilograms.

The recommendation is scheduled to be voted on in July at NCWM's annual meeting in Detroit.

NATSO generally supports using a diesel-gallon-equivalent (DGE) for measuring CNG or LNG because it is the most consumer-friendly approach. However, NATSO is reviewing the details of the proposed language.
