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.
