Production measurement is a critical part of effective production management, including facilities operations, production optimization, and reservoir planning, yet the methods used predominantly today to measure produced oil, water and gas follow the same principles of a century ago. The industry is asking itself, how well do these methods work? In the last decade a quantum leap in technology has come with the invention of multiphase flow measurement, benefiting production management with not only better measurements, but better insight to measurement needs and solutions.
