International Multiphase Flow Separation Symposium (IMFS2)

Go to International Multiphase Flow Separation Symposium



April 30-May 1, 2019
Southwest Research Institute
San Antonio, Texas


The International Multiphase Flow Separation Symposium (IMFS2) is a knowledge-sharing and thought-provoking event intended to bring together experts from around the world who have different backgrounds and interests. The goal of the IMFS2 is to combine the expertise from the upstream and midstream business sectors within the oil and gas industry to discuss phase separation topics related to:

  • overcoming design challenges and limitations
  • improving standards and specifications
  • new and innovative separation technologies
  • effective diagnostic tools
  • management and the impact of flow assurance issues in separation
  • the value that high-quality data play in improving designs and decision making

The symposium was born from an industry need to unite operators, contractors, equipment manufacturers, and researchers to discuss discrepancies between current design practices, design specifications supported by data under realistic conditions, and the experience of experts.  A full session of this two-day event will be dedicated to discussing design specifications for scrubbers intended to protect compression equipment.

The program was carefully crafted by a technical committee led by industry experts to ensure the consistency and quality of the information presented at each session.  At the end of each session, time will be allotted for a summary of the key points made during the session and a Q&A period, both intended to enhance the learning, understanding, and exchange of ideas among participants.  A key goal of the symposium is to provide participants with valuable information that can be applied in their daily jobs.

The annual IMFS2 will be held in the historic city of San Antonio, Texas, a popular tourist destination, on April 30 and May 1, 2019.
