Semi-continuous monitoring system for controlling the salt content in source streams
In this EU project, Fraunhofer IGB is involved in a trans-European consortium in the development of a novel system for determining the salinity and other physical parameters in offshore oil production. The measuring system is intended to enable the exact determination of the volume flows of multiphase mixtures of oil, water and gas, as they occur in offshore oil production at great depths. For this purpose, the multiphase mixture is separated into its components. The data obtained in this way is used, for example, to calibrate inductive flow measurements or to detect changes in the oil composition at an early stage.
