The measurement of fluids in the oil and gas industry requires a robust measurement of multiphase flows. Magnetic resonance as a measurement principle has multiple advantages over existing technologies. A magnetic resonance based multiphase flow meter which is capable of producing an image of the spatial distribution of a mulitphase flow has been developed. This paper describes the principles of magnetic resonance. Afterwards details of the technical implementation and the method by which the system determines multiphase flow composition are explained.
