ABSTRACT

The paper presents measurements taken at the National Engineering Laboratory (UK), K-Lab (Norway) and CEESI (USA) wet gas test loops. The test matrices cover a range of conditions up to 15% liquid volume fraction and operating pressure up to 90 bar. Differential and absolute pressure signals were sampled at high frequency across V-cone meters. Turbulence characteristics of the flow captured in the sampled signals were characterized by pattern recognition techniques and related to the fractions and flow rates of individual phases.
