Multiphase harmonisation project now underway | NEL

Wednesday, July 05, 2017 – A major research study that will enhance flow metrology across Europe is underway. The project, which is being co-ordinated by NEL, is part of this year’s European Metrology Programme for Innovation and Research (EMPIR).

“The ground-breaking project is designed to achieve measurement harmonisation between multiphase flow metrology testing facilities,” explains R&D Co-ordinator, David Crawford. “Called MultiFlowMet II, it involves collaboration with 17 partners, including Onesubea Processing, DNV GL, Schlumberger and other multiphase test labs, meter vendors and research partners covering the UK, Norway, the Netherlands, Germany, Italy, the Czech Republic, Russia and Singapore.”

The project, which builds on the work done on a preceding EMRP project, has been set up to address the acknowledged lack of standardised facilities (and procedures) for testing multiphase flow meters. It started in June and will run for three years.
