Advanced Sensing of Water Content

The distribution of fluids within a pipeline at any given time is generally not known from direct measurements, and must instead be inferred through modelling techniques, or limited sensing capabilities. This can pose challenges in terms of understanding what the liquid inventory is within the flowline, in particular how well inhibited the water phase is when it comes to hydrate formation. We have partnered with OneSubsea to test their AquaWater (Gen2) in the high pressure single pass flowloop (Hytra / HyJump) that we operate with CSIRO. The purpose here is to identify the performance limits of the equipment under production conditions, and to develop a desktop study to identify the cost savings that may be associated with online sensors versus estimates of MEG flow data.
