Since the Netherlands adopted natural gas in the 1960s, DNV GL has been involved in the design and operation of natural gas metering stations. In 2013, DNV GL introduced a multiphase flow test loop, which is used to assess wet gas and multiphase flow meters. Allocation of sales gas to the different producers is often based on measurement performed by wet gas flow meters. Wet gas flow meters in sales gas allocation systems therefore have direct financial implications. Wet gas flow measurement may be performed by using dedicated wet gas multiphase flow meters or by single phase flow meters with a correction algorithm. At DNV GL’s multiphase flow facility, these flow meters are tested and fundamental research is performed to better understand the physics behind wet gas flow metering. One of the DNV GL scientists working in this area of expertise is Dennis van Putten. He will explain the fundamentals of wet gas flows and the various metering technologies.
This one day course is designed for participants that are relatively new to the field of wet gas metering. This course is preceded by a three day course on Fiscal metering of natural gas.
On request, DNV GL can also provide an in-house training course in the English or Dutch language (content, location and duration of the course can be adapted to the client's wishes). Please contact us for more information.
