Multiphase flow reference metrology

    Project: EU project

    Project Details


    Multiphase flow measurements to support subsea exploration of oil qnd gas reserves.                    

    Field measurements in subsea oil and gas production exhibit high measurement uncertainty costing industry billions of Euros in financial exposure and production inefficiencies.
    Project aims to achieve a significant network of multiphase flow reference metrology laboratories providing reliable harmonised test methods and intercomparable measurements.
    VTT MIKES produces a thorough set of test matrices and protocols for intercomparison multiflow tests and updates the uncertainty calculation protocol.
