Challenges and Solutions in Multiphase Flow Measurement; for onshore, offshore and subsea applications

Recorded On: 02/17/2015

Accurate measurement of oil, gas and water can be challenging enough when the fluids are fully separated through a properly sized test separator. But not all applications will allow for test separators to be installed – due to cost, size or complexity – and the measurements of the individual fluids will need to be determined with an inline multi-phase flow meter system.

This presentation will discuss some of the applications where multi-phase meters are currently used, what challenges are commonly seen, and how the use of multi-phase meters can effectively be used for these complex scenarios. The current status of multi-phase meters will be covered, and examples of applications successfully (and not so successfully) uses of multi-phase meters in real life applications will be presented.

This webinar is categorized under the Projects, Facilities, and Construction discipline.
