Abstract

One of the main issues in the natural gas (NG) transport networks management is represented by the Unaccounted for Gas (UAG). UAG is the quantity to be considered in the balance equation to take into account the unavoidable errors due to measurements and estimations. The resulting problem is twofold: on one hand fiscal and contractual, on the other hand the unavoidable pressure from the national authorities to reduce UAG. In this paper the authors analyse the UAG trends in natural gas (NG) transport networks and present: i) an investigation about UAG in international networks; ii) a statistical analysis of annual and monthly trends for UAG; iii) the analysis of UAG causes.
