TUV SUD NEL operates the UK National Standard Test Facility for multiphase flow measurement. The facility can vary quantities of oil, water and gas to accurately replicate the three-phase flows encountered in the oil and gas industry. This enables testing and evaluation of new technologies for today’s subsea production environment.
This is currently the only facility in the world accredited to ISO17025. It has recently been upgraded to operate at an elevated pressure of 100bar. Traceable to national measurement standards, the facility provides equipment manufacturers and operators access to an independent laboratory for development, calibration and validation purposes.
