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 3-phase flows encountered in the oil and gas industry. This enables testing and evaluation of new technologies required in today’s subsea production environment.
This is currently the only facility in the world accredited to ISO17025 and 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.
