The ISO 5167 Story

In the UK most natural gas is measured at least once using an orifice plate: each year perhaps £25 billion of natural gas is so metered with an uncertainty of about £250 million.

NEL and others have done work over decades to ensure that ISO 5167 is correct, that is fully justified, neither inadequately restrictive, causing error, nor too restrictive, causing unnecessary expense.

Flow Measurement and Fluid Mechanics Research Centre

A new UK flow measurement research centre will open in April 2016. It will prioritise the development and testing of new concepts with a key focus on developing impact in three significant areas:

Novel Measurement Techniques for Complex Flows
Flow Measurement Uncertainty and Diagnostics
Regimes in Multi-Component Flows

Offshore Europe

FMI hosted a networking reception at Offshore Europe in September 2015. We were delighted to welcome over 40 people from the flow measurement community to the stand.  As well as allowing some very familiar faces to chat, there were several new contacts made and a couple of new initiatives emerged too.
