Paper Abstract

Multiphase flow metering is very important in the oilfield. We construct four new liquid metering models (Falling Model I, Falling Model II, Open Channel Model and Element Resistance Model) and a gas metering model based on the online multiphase flow metering equipment without separation. The experimental study was carried on indoors at the multiphase flow metering equipment, and the model coefficients can be figured out by the method of date classification. We can figure out the error of each phase, and evaluate all the metering models. Through errors analysis, the average error of the liquid metering models can be within 10%. The error of gas metering model can be controlled within 20%. The experiment results proved that these metering models can be used in the multiphase metering with different viscosity. The metering precision is rather high in the wide range of gas phase and liquid phase flow rate. And it fits in with outdoor application.
