The North Sea Flow Measurement Workshop is the world's premier flow measurement event on topics such as accurate flow measurement and metering systems for single phase oil and gas, wet gas and multiphase flows. In 2020, a broader scope will ensure delegates benefit from new developments from across the flow measurement community most especially the energy transition and digital transformation.
The 37th North Sea Flow Measurement Workshop), took place in Tønsberg, Norway in late October. Highlighting recent developments in flow metrology across the oil and gas industry, the workshop brought together 240 delegates from over 20 countries to discuss the measurement challenges faced by the sector.
The TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory team presented four talks during the event, including sessions on wet gas flow measurement, allocation, a new temperature compensation model for Coriolis density measurement error and uncertainty in multiphase flow measurement.
The workshop was run by Tekna in association with the Norwegian Society for Oil and Gas Measurement. The baton has now been passed to TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory to organise the 38th NSFMW in 2020, which will take place from 27th – 29th October in Aberdeen’s new P&J Live conference centre.
The theme this year is technical innovation and how this relates to the current and future outlook for flow measurement. Responding to the changing energy landscape and the flow metrology challenges of sectors other than oil and gas, next year’s workshop will be much broader, to highlight developments from across the flow measurement community, including water, life sciences, the energy transition and clean fuels.
TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory’s Dr Bruno Pinguet, who launched the 2020 Workshop at the end of the 2019 event, commented: “The North Sea workshop always has excellent technical content. For 2020, we look forward to receiving abstract submissions from across the flow measurement community, particularly those related to the energy transition and flow measurement challenges for cleaner fuels.”
