New multi-phase flow metering technology available for industrial measuring units in the oil and gas industry

Authors: R. Casimiro (Schneider Electric / Invensys, US, Foxboro), M. Henry, M. Tombs (University of Oxford, UK, Oxford), A. Kroshkin (Schneider Electric / Invensys, RU, Moscow), A. Lischuk (HMS Group, RU, Moscow)

Key words: multi-phase flow, Coriolis meter, neural net, measuring skid, oil and gas.

This paper describes a new commercial multi-phase metering system combining Coriolis mass flow with water cut metering. The NetOil&Gas measurement skid, utilizing this technology, has been developed and certified as an industrial multi-phase flow meter. Industrial stationary and mobile units MERA-MR, based on the NetOil&Gas flow meter, have brought this state-of-the-art technology to field metering practice. The results from a number of laboratory and field trials have confirmed that this technology is applicable in the oil and gas industry. The first commercial procurement contracts have now been signed.
