Over the last decade the development, evaluation, and use of multiphase flow meters have been a major focus for the oil and gas industry worldwide. The workshop will be an attractive avenue for all oil and gas field specialists, from operations, research and development to academia, to discuss existing multiphase metering limitations and field challenges, enhancing accuracy of the available sensors and envision the future trends in multiphase metering. Several alternative metering systems have been developed in recent years; however, universal and robust solutions are still missing from the meters available in the market. The sessions will be dedicated to reviewing existing metering challenges, novel hard and soft technologies, and principles of operations to measure rates of gas, oil and water in a three-phase flow. Industry operators and meter developer professionals and leaders will establish a platform to review the technologies already implemented in the various commercial meters to assess their operational reliability, and accuracy and robustness from major operating and service companies in Middle East region.
The outcomes of the workshop will be to identify the existing field multiphase flow metering challenges and set the stage for future meters and technologies to fill the gaps in current capabilities. The workshop will include a combination of the following session formats:
Specialists in the industries of:
Three (3) days of informal discussions prompted by selected keynote presentations and discussions. Workshops maximise the exchange of ideas among attendees and presenters through brief technical presentations followed by extended Q&A periods. Focused topics attract an informed audience eager to discuss issues critical to advancing both technology and best practices. The majority of the presentations are in the form of case studies, highlighting engineering achievements, and lessons learnt. In order to stimulate frank discussion, no proceedings are published and the press is not invited to attend.
Registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. The Steering Committee encourages attendance from those who can contribute to the workshop most effectively either in discussions or with posters. A mix of attendees in terms of geographic origin, companies, and disciplines will be encouraged.
In keeping with workshop objectives and the SPE mission, commercialism in posters or presentations will not be permitted. Company logos must be limited to the title slide and used only to indicate the affiliation of the presenter and others involved in the work.
All attendees will receive an attendance certificate attesting to their participation in the workshop. This certificate will be provided in exchange for a completed Workshop Questionnaire.
Attendees at this workshop qualify for SPE Continuing Education Units (CEU) at the rate of 0.1 CEU per hour of the workshop.
