This calculation corrects hydrocarbon volumes metered under pressure to the corresponding volumes at the equilibrium pressure for the metered temperature. It contains compressibility factors related to the meter temperature and density at 15°C of the metered material. The corresponding customary version is API MPMS Chpt. 11.2.2:1986 Amd.1994.
