Measurement systems for the Oil and Gas industry
Oil and Gas
Accurate measurement of the various flow phases (water, oil, gas, condensate & sand/mud ) remains a challenge. Non-intrusive electomagnetic imaging and measurement techniques such as Electrical Capacitance Tomography (ECT), Magnetic Inductance Tomography (MIT), Electrical Velocity Tomography (EVT) and other novel methods are being used today to gain a better understanding of multiphase flows, and have great promise for more accurate metering in the future.
