A compact cyclone multiphase meter (CCM meter) developed by Statoil and Kværner Process Systems utilizes a compact gas liquid cyclone to separate liquid and gas, before individual measurement of the two phases by conventional single phase instruments, followed by re-mixing downstream of the measurement section. The most unique feature of this cyclone is the simple control scheme which provides for large turn down ratios. The instrumentation has been implemented into the water cut analyzer electronics to provide for a complete stand alone system. Field test data will be presented along with its impact on reservoir management.
