Flow measurement R&D specialist, TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory, has opened its £16million Advanced Multiphase Facility (AMF) which it says will help global oil and gas operators to ensure that production remains economically viable.

In terms of testing operating pressures, temperatures, flowrates and metrology, the AMF’s capabilities are beyond that of any other laboratory in the world. Operating at pressures up to 140 bar, the AMF doubles previous test capabilities to meet industry’s current and future measurement challenges. With a working envelope at least 20 times larger than any multiphase or wet gas facility in the world, the AMF also has the highest flow rate in the world (for both gas and liquid) within one multiphase facility.

Creating at least 17 new jobs, the East Kilbride site will futureproof the delivery of innovative technical services to the oil and gas production market for the next 25 years. Read more…
