Description / Abstract:

This standard defines the minimum equipment and methods used to determine the quantity and quality of crude oil being loaded from a lease tank to a truck trailer without requiring direct access to a lease tank gauge hatch. Methods and equipment described are grouped by tank zone, trailer zone, and the transition zone between the two (see Section 5). The equipment used for measurement is dependent on the existing design of the lease equipment, the equipment used to transport the product, or a combination of the two. Some sites may require measurements from multiple zones in order to arrive at an accurate load quantity and quality.
