Summary: The paper aims to experimentally evaluate empirical correlations for the correction of overestimated readings of moist gas flows in cone - type meters. This purpose lies in the fact of the technological challenges of measuring the flow of natural gas in moist gas conditions. Through a documentary research, the current state of the technology for the measurement of wet gas, as well as the operation of such a measurement system, its advantages and disadvantages, and a discussion about the norms and regulations related to the subject were presented. In the experimental phase, the aspects of flow patterns and their influence on the overestimation of the reading, analysis of the behavior of the cone type meter, evaluation of the parameters that influence the measurement of wet gas are presented. It is also compared the efficiency of existing correlations applied to the data of the present work. The cone-type meter presents itself as an important meter in front of the scenario presented. Knowing its behavior in relation to the existing correlations is important since there is no generalized correlation of correction.
