Multiphase Flow Meter Selection

ARC has been conducting research related to oil and gas industry technology for over two decades.  Recently ARC conducted detailed research specifically for Multiphase Flow Meters.  Based on this research, ARC analysts have developed a comprehensive set of criteria to help you select the best multiphase flow meter solution available in the market.

Multiphase Flow Meter Overview

Oil and gas flow measurement is not a simple process.  Multiphase Flow Meter technology is designed to help. The fluid being measured may be a mixture of oil, gas – wet and dry, condensate and water, and therefore requires specialized technology to measure such a multiphase condition.  The oil and gas production fields both onshore as well as offshore require specialized solutions to accurately measure the oil and gas production.  Accurate measurement is an important part of the information systems used for production allocation and production accounting as well as flow control.  Different sensing technologies are required depending on such factors as pressure and temperature, the density and composition of the fluid, and the mass/volume fractions of oil, gas, and water, as well as the condition of the oil that is being produced. 

Selecting the correct multiphase flow meter solution can be crucial to the production operation for accounting and business reasons.  The multiphase flow meter must be able to handle the specific kind of crude from such sources such as conventional oil production, oil shale, or fracking.  Failure to correctly measure the flow can impact downstream analysis as well.
