Natural gas, as it comes from a well, contains water. Before transferring the gas into a pipeline for distribution, as much water as possible must be removed to eliminate carryover, with any remaining water detected to alert operators.
This article first discusses the methods used to remove water from gas. It then describes how modern instrumentation is used to accurately measure gas transferred into the pipeline, and to help detect any water carryover after the removal process.
