Course Credit: 0.15 CEU, 1.5 PDH

Multiphase Flow Meters (MPFMs) have been in development since the 1960’s. Ideally, MPFM systems measure the phase-specific flow rates of arbitrary mixtures of oil, water, and gas from producing wells. Achieving continuous real-time well head production measurements from MPFM systems leads to a variety of production optimization and safety advantages.

Many unique MPFM systems have been realized over the years, utilizing a wide variety of physics to interpret the flow rates and phase content of multiphase flows. In this webinar series, we categorize multiphase flow ‘sensing domains’. In part 2 of this series, we progressively discuss measurement physics within the mechanical phenomena sensing domain, advancing in frequency from steady-state processes to high frequency propagating acoustic waves. Fluid flow regime modifications as strategies for measuring multiphase flows will also be discussed. The principles behind these measurement physics and fluid dynamics will be described.
