Abstract: Prognosis is a condition based monitoring and diagnostic system for Differential Pressure (DP) meter s which uses a third pressure tapping downstream of the meter and patented techniques to monitor the pressure field through the meter body. The Prognosis DP meter diagnostic system is well documented and the technology has been discussed at repeated technicall conferences and workshops including the North Sea Flow Measurement Workshop 1 , 2 , 3 , 4, 5 and the SE Asia Flow Measurement Conference 4, 6, 7 . F or completeness, a technical summary of the system is included below. The flow measurement of high viscosity oils is an important and challenging area for the future of the energy sector. The vast majority of the worlds oil reserves are classed as high viscosity (i.e. , heavy ) oil . Not only are there difficulties in the e xtraction and transportation of these fluids, but high accuracy flow measurement has also been proven to be extremely problematic.
