Title (EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR MEASURING A COMPOSITION OF A FLUID
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL DE MESURE DE COMPOSITION DE FLUIDE
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus (2) for measuring a composition of a fluid, comprises a fluid conduit (4) having a wall (6) which defines a fluid flow path (8), a transmitting antenna (10), a receiving antenna (12), and an electrically conductive waveguide member (20) comprising an groove (30) that defines a waveguide path (22) for guiding an electromagnetic field from the transmitting antenna (10) to the receiving antenna (12). The electrically conductive waveguide member (20) is separated from the fluid flow path (8) by an electrically insulating inner region (24) of the wall (6). The opening (32) of the groove (30) is disposed towards the fluid flow path (8) to permit a portion of the electromagnetic field to extend into the fluid flow path (8). The apparatus may be used for measuring a composition of a fluid, in particular for measuring the proportion of water in the liquid content of a two- or three-phase fluid produced from an oil or gas well.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil (2) pour mesurer une composition d'un fluide, qui comprend un conduit de fluide (4) ayant une paroi (6) qui définit un trajet d'écoulement de fluide (8), une antenne de transmission (10), une antenne de réception (12), et un élément de guide d'onde électroconducteur (20) comprenant une rainure (30) qui définit un trajet de guide d'onde (22) pour guider un champ électromagnétique de l'antenne de transmission (10) à l'antenne de réception (12). L'élément de guide d'onde électroconducteur (20) est séparé du trajet d'écoulement de fluide (8) par une région interne électriquement isolante (24) de la paroi (6). L'ouverture (32) de la rainure (30) est disposée vers le trajet d'écoulement de fluide (8) pour permettre à une partie du champ électromagnétique de s'étendre dans le trajet d'écoulement de fluide (8). L'appareil peut être utilisé pour mesurer une composition d'un fluide, en particulier pour mesurer la proportion d'eau dans le contenu liquide d'un fluide à deux ou trois phases produit à partir d'un puits de pétrole ou de gaz.
