Gas Quality/gas composition Data - evidence of value required
Operational Liaison and Business Delivery Manager at National Grid
We are still struggling to gain insight from the industry on what value would be attained of having this data and what the blockers are of not currently receiving this and keen to utilise this forum and/or ops forum and 121's to understand and prioritise industry views on this if required. To date feedback has only been received on why this data should not be provided at the level to which NG currently has this available.
If you could please vote as soon as possible with a clear indication of how value could be attained from this raw data (operational or commercial) or what analysis/insight it could enable. Do ensure this feedback details how this can create value for the end consumer and/or enable the journey towards decarbonisation.
We had intended to reflect some test data on this site but we have received strong feedback from industry players that any data sourced downstream from a supply point (even where there a a number of supply points at the entry level) could lead to identification of a single supply point where (as is often the case) only one supply point flowing. This is not to say it couldn't and wouldn't be possible to still provide but would need due industry regulatory consultation.
For added context the type of data around gas composition that could be made available is:
- H2O dewpoint
- Hydrocarbon dewpoint
- Specific gravity
