JIP to investigate capabilities of flow meter technology for phase contaminated oil flows

DNV GL’s Multiphase Flow Laboratory allows equipment manufacturers and oil and gas companies to test, validate and calibrate multiphase technologies, such as separators and flow meters.

DNV GL has initiated a Joint Industry Project (JIP), now open for industry partners, E&P companies and manufacturers to join, to assess the capability and feasibility of Coriolis and ultrasonic flow meters. Coriolis and ultrasonic flow meters are widely accepted for application in single-phase oil flows by the oil industry. However, there is little validation or independent test results to support the claim that they produce accurate allocation measurement results, according to DNV. Inaccurate results related to the oil flow can present both operational and financial risks by negatively influencing decision-making and understanding of operational efficiency. The JIP will provide testing guidelines, a performance assessment and correction algorithms as a foundation for using Coriolis and ultrasonic flow meters for phase ...
