API MPMS 12.1.2 2018 pdf free download.Manual of Petroleum Standards Chapter 12—Calculation of Petroleum Quantities Section 1—Calculation of Static Petroleum Quantities Part 2—Calculation Procedures for Tank Cars.
1 Scope This chapter is applicable to all crude oils, petroleum products, and petrochemicals (including LPGs and other liquefied gases) transported by rail tank car. It does not cover any products loaded or measured as solids. It defines the terms required to understand the calculations and provides instructions for their use. The cars are assumed to be on level ground. 2 Normative References The following referenced documents are indispensable for the application of this document.
