The results of this project will impact the oil and gas community that is becoming increasingly reliant on multiphase metrology. It will do so by creating an enlarged, comparable, network of multiphase flow measurement reference facilities. This will provide oil and gas operators and instrumentation developers with a renewed confidence in the testing and reference measurement infrastructure. In turn, this will lead to lower uncertainty of measurement and greater confidence in the deployment of multiphase metering technology.
The work package will support the development of new standards and guidelines for harmonised multiphase testing and uncertainty estimation and to provide input to improve regulations.
Further to this, the project will produce a case study for demonstrating to end users how the outputs of the project could be used to reduce uncertainty and increase end user confidence in the metering technology being evaluated. The partners will work with the end user advisory group to develop a case study that is realistic, to maximise impact.
