For truck loading, LNG can be weighed, measured through small cryogenic liquid meters, or (if no custody transfer is involved before vaporization) measured conventionally as a vapor. Pipeline measurement with LNG lines in intra-plant or intra-company use does not ordinarily call for precise measurement, or measurement can be made of the vaporized gas. Present methods for measuring LNG tanker shipments are fairly simple and straightforward. In one case, a ship's LNG volume is measured and then converted to weight and to Btu by using actual volume and density measurements.
