Emerson Process Management has added the Micro Motion ELITE CMFS sensor platform to its line of Coriolis flowmeters to deliver precise measurement to smaller pipeline sizes of less than 2 inches or DN50.
When flowmeters are used to measure flow, they measure one of a number of fluid types. One common way to divide up fluid types is between liquid, gas and steam. These types can be further subdivided. Types of liquid include oil, water and industrial liquids.
There are several types of flow meters used to measure the flow profile of a fluid. They are; turbine flow meters, ultrasonic flow meters, magnetic flow meters, Coriolis flow meters and target flow meters.
Custody transfer measurement in the oil and gas business has been described many ways. It has been called an accuracy in measurement that both the buyer and seller can agree upon and it has been called the best that can be achieved to meet the contract conditions.
As traditional natural gas reservoirs are depleted, producers are forced to target lower pressure wells that typically produce a “wet gas.”
