Don’t disappoint the end-user

A generic method to test, establish and validate flow meter performance

A generic method to test, establish and validate flow meter performance

Testing, establishing and validating the performance of a flow meter is essential to avoid disappointing the end-user. In this webinar with TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory’s Dr Bruno Pinguet, we will discuss a generic method for testing, establishing and validating flow meter performance.

Our webinar will tackle these points, focusing on:

  • Review how the flow meter test specification should be established, using the T-Distribution and not normal distribution and explain the test should be done.

  • Learn how to establish if a meter is passing or failing in performance.

  • Learn how a proper specification and generic method should be established based on the recommendations (95% confidence interval). This will extend to the field validation of multiphase flow meters against “reference measurement” and how this should be carried out.

About the speaker

Dr Bruno Pinguet

Dr Bruno Pinguet is one of the world's leading experts in multiphase flow measurement and research and has extensive international experience in the area of multiphase flow measurement, recognised as a world authority on this topic. He has over 140 scientific publications and a number of patents to his name.

Bruno has spent 25 years researching and developing multiphase flow meters with Schlumberger and has extensive oilfield experience. His expertise covers a wide range of areas, including multiphase metering, flow-loop and field test comparisons and data quality control, auditing and validation.

His role at TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory allows the business to focus more effectively on helping industry achieve the cost-effective exploitation of reserves in technically challenging production environments. In particular, the verification of in-situ meter performance, a key gap in the current measurement traceability chain.
