In the current Master Thesis, the in – line measurements of oil/gas production fluids as well as the existing technologies and techniques are presented. Initially, the flow regimes, which define the operation principles of multiphase flow meters (MPFMs), are analyzed and then the in – line MPFMs, separation type meters, wet gas flow meters and other categories of MPFMs are described in detail. Afterwards, the performance of MPFMs is described, which defines the application of the multiphase flow measurement technologies and the selection the most suitable one. Furthermore, guidelines for designing MPFM installations are presented as well as the main characteristics of the operation of MPFMs such as cost, maintenance, footprint, radioactive source and calibration. Last but not least, MPFMs which are being sold in the market from different companies such as Agar Corporation, are presented as well as some very useful conclusions as far as the perspectives and the new trends of MPFM technologies are concerned.
