CMR is developing sensor systems for detection and characterization of flow assurance related problems.
Flow assurance challenges related to gas hydrates, asphaltenes, scale, vax and corrosion are getting more attention as the oil and gas industry goes deeper, colder and longer. CMR takes advantage of our competence within flow measurement and sensor technology to develop novel solutions for characterizing such problems. CMR is doing research on sensors and methods for both laboratory and online applications. Examples of applications are
- On-line measurement of formation water break-through
- Early detection of gas hydrate formation
- Characterization of deposit layers
- Multivariate analysis of large and complex data sets
CMR works closely with industrial and academic partners in developing these new technologies.
