“We already use Flowcal,” is a common response from gas measurement professionals when starting a conversation around C-SMART Analytics. It’s a natural response, but it inherently implies an apples to apples comparison. C-SMART is different technology and takes a different approach, putting it in a class of its own that in fact complements measurement solutions […]
The midstream industry average lost and unaccounted for (LAUF) for natural gas storage, processing, and transportation averages 0.40% of throughput. While LAUF may include a small component of estimating errors for pneumatic device integrity and venting, it is dominated by persistent measurement errors. Root causes of measurement errors include obstructions, faulty or damaged equipment, and […]
It seems that AI has suddenly come into its own almost overnight with natural language models like ChatGPT grabbing global headlines. C-SMART though has been quietly developing Augmented Intelligence for a decade, blending sophisticated algorithms, digital twins of gas measurement stations and their manufacturing and calibration specs, and continuous SCADA monitoring to reduce a typical […]
Over the last two decades many natural gas pipeline operators and storage companies have made steady progress in reducing their lost and unaccounted for gas. Yet the industry average LAUF remains relatively level at 0.40% of total throughput. If LAUF is only fractionally explained by actual emissions, how can measurement teams drive out the errors […]

To survive, many businesses had to retool and reconfigure at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and in a similar fashion ESG is doing the same for the natural gas value chain.
Measurement data management is only the starting place for the real high value work.
In a nutshell, our formula says that errors are a function of the number of events that lead to LAUF errors multiplied by the severity, duration, and throughput.
