IGEM/GM/8 Metering Update

Course outline

This standard covers the design of gas supply meter installations of capacity greater than 6 m3 h-1 and maximum operating pressure not exceeding 38 bar. It applies to new, onshore, gas supply meter installations only. It is not retrospective. However, where work needs to be undertaken on a meter installation, it is recommended that such an installation be brought into line with this Standard.

Key outcomes/objectives

On completion of the course delegates should be able to demonstrate they have sufficient knowledge and understanding covering:

• design
