The shared presentations of Engie, CMR, FMC and Metropartner, regarding installation effects on ultrasonic gas flowmeters, won the best paper award of this year's workshop.
The presentations covered the operator's discovery of a significant mis-measurement on Gjøa platform's gas export, and the subsequent investigation of the reason for the mis-measurement through flow simulations by CMR.
First Philip Chan from Engie gave his story "In-situ effects on ultrasonic gas flowmeters". This presentation was made together with Øyvind Storli, Sveinung Myhr, Atle Abrahamsen from FMC Technologies, Reidar Sakariassen from Metropartner and Kjell-Eivind Frøysa and Camilla Sætre, both from CMR.
Afterwards Camilla Sætre presented “Installation effects and flow instabilities in gas metering station with multipath ultrasonic flow meters". A presentation made together with Kjell-Eivind Frøysa (CMR), Anders Hallanger (CMR) and Philip Chan (Engie).
Another presentation was also highly awarded:
"A new methodology for cost-benefit-risk analysis of oil metering station lay-outs" given by Astrid Marie Skålvik (CMR), based on a paper written together with CMR-colleagues Ranveig Nygaard Bjørk, Kjell-Eivind Frøysa and Camilla Sætre. This presentation focused on how the risk associated with meter failure may be incorporated in a traditional cost-benefit analysis.
