Operating Experience Of A Separating-Type Multiphase Metering System
Author(s): K. T. Liu
Abstract/Introduction:
This paper presents a multiphase metering system that utilizes a pipe separator technique to completely separate the multiphase flow into a liquid stream and a gas stream. The gas and liquid streams are then measured with conventional measurement instruments. Over one hundred commercial metering systems are currently in operation worldwide. Operating principles, significant features, sizing criteria, design configurations, and operating experience of some of these commercial installations are described in this paper.

Dirty Vs. Clean Ultrasonic Gas Flow Meter Performance
Author(s): John Lansing
Abstract/Introduction:
The use of ultrasonic meters (USMs) for natural gas custody applications during the past few years has increased at a remarkable rate. The growth rate increased after the publication of Measurement Canadas PS-G-E-06 Provisional Ultrasonic Specification 1 and AGA Report No. 9, Measurement of Gas by Multipath Ultrasonic Meters 2 in June of 1998. The many benefits of USMs have been well documented over he past few years 3. With the increased population of USMs in the gas industry, many users are asking more questions about this technology.

Using Optimisation Algorithms And CFD To Improve The Performance Of Ultrasonic Flowmeters
Author(s): Dan Hackett, Kevin Chin
Abstract/Introduction:
Most customers have now started to use ultrasonic meters for natural gas custody transfer metering. As a stand-alone meter, it can give numerous diagnostics information on the performance of the meter, but not enough to determine a benchmark on its performance to a certain reference. This is where external diagnostic would be required to enhance customers confidence in the overall metering system performance. In this paper, we will focus on these various techniques, and how they being used.

Application Of Ap Meters To Wet Gas Flow
Author(s): David G. Stewart
Abstract/Introduction:
The measurement of wet gas flows is a key requirement of the offshore oil and gas industry. In marginal oil and gas fields the cost of separator equipment and supporting infrastructure can be prohibitive. Often several small fields are tied back to a single platform, requiring each unprocessed stream to be metered prior to commingling.

Web Enabled Measurement Asset Healthcare & Management
Author(s): Gerry Inglis
Abstract/Introduction:
In todays increasingly regulated world, the requirement to formally document the operation and maintenance of measurement systems and assets demands no justification. It is of paramount importance that actions and events are recorded as they occur and then shared with others as expeditiously as possible.

Online Measurement Of Water In Wet Gas Flow - Added Value For Process Optimisation And Reservoir Understanding?
Author(s): Rune Haddeland, 0ystein Lund Bo, Ebbe Nyfors, Tore Lolancl
Abstract/Introduction:
More and more field developments will include wet gas or gas-condensate fields with a very high GVF. For such developments with typically high pressure, high total flow rates and limited liquid rates, a test separator for well testing is often not a possible option and inline flow instruments will be requisite (see e.g. 1).

Multiphase Flow Metering Per Well Can It Be Justified?
Author(s): Lex Scheers, Khamis Busaidi, Mike Harper, Martin Halvorsen, Tor Wideroe
Abstract/Introduction:
Currently Multi-Phase Flow Meters (MPFMs) are developing from a nursing technology to mature technology and an increasing number of meters are being installed worldwide. However, the majority of the MPFM installations are still shared by a number of wells, i.e. replacement of the conventional test separator and only a few applications have MPFMs installed per individual well.
