New Monoethylene-Glycol Sensor Validated by Flow Loop Under Hydrate-Forming Conditions

The authors present a monoethylene-glycol-sensing system and validate it in a specially constructed flow loop.

Online pipeline-management systems provide real-time and look-ahead functionality for production networks. They are limited, however, by a dearth of data with which to inform their predictions. This represents a barrier to a true, high-fidelity digital twin. Greater integration with new sensor technologies is needed to bound model predictions and improve their reliability.
