Numerical simulation of the flow behavior in part of large pipe system is presented in this article. Compressed natural gas is transported through the system in a dynamic unsteady way. Velocities at several points and velocity profiles at certain positions are monitored during the numerical simulation. The aim is to investigate the stability of velocity profiles at the positions of flowmeters in course of flow time. In addition, the possibility of flow conditioning in the system is presented and discussed.
