Geothermal production measurement


Measurements of mass flow and the constituents of the mass produced are integral in the production of geothermal fluids. From regulatory and royalty payment issues to monitoring the condition of the resource and abatement of corrosive constituents in the geothermal fluid, physical and chemical measurements are a necessity for geothermal production and utilization. Depending on the phase being produced, the operator has a choice of many instruments for measuring flow. Conventional methods are typically used to measure flow for single-phase systems. The choice of flow element and meter initially depends on the mass and/or volumetric flow rate, turn-down ratio (range of flow to be measured), the pressure, temperature, and extent of flow surging.
