Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers LNG density calculation models for use in the calculation or prediction of the densities of saturated liquefied natural gas (LNG) mixtures at a specified temperature range given the pressure, temperature, and composition of the mixture. Composition restrictions for the LNGs are given for methane, nitrogen, n-butane, i-butane, and pentanes. It is assumed that hydrocarbons with carbon numbers of six or greater are not present in the LNG solution. The mathematical models presented here are the extended corresponding states model, hard sphere model, revised Klosek and McKinley model, and the cell model.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard.

ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.
Significance and Use
The models in this specification can be used to calculate the density of saturated liquid natural gas in the temperature range 90 to 120K. The estimated uncertainty for the density calculations is ±0.1 %. The restrictions on composition of the liquefied natural gas are:
1.1 This specification covers LNG density calculation models for use in the calculation or prediction of the densities of saturated LNG mixtures from 90 to 120K to within 0.1 % of true values given the pressure, temperature, and composition of the mixture.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
