Xsens AS presented paper at North Sea Flow Measurement Workshop
At the North Sea Measurement Work Shop in Aberdeen, October 2018, Xsens AS presented the theory behind the technology, technology advantages and potential, as well as flow test results. The paper was presented by VP R&D, Remi Kippersund.
Clamp-on flow meters reduce installed flow meter cost significantly. However, acceptance in the oil industry has so far been low, mainly due to low accuracy achievements and long-term reliability issues. Xsens AS, a Christian Michelsen Research AS spin-off company, is in the position of releasing new ultrasound clamp-on flow meters, changing the game with respect to accuracy, functionality and flow meter robustness.
