I now the flow of natural gas through an orifice will be the same on both sides with a little pressure differential. But if i have 900 PSIG at 4mmscfd measured upstream and the other side of the valve or orifice is attached to a pipe to atmosphere. Is the flow going to be higher on the pipe to atmosphere due to a lower pressure and gas expansion? Just want to get this straight.
