The invention discloses a separator and a plurality of multiphase metering systems and methods. A well testing system for testing fluids produced by one or more petroleum wells has a separator and a plurality of multiphase flow metering systems, each of which has the capability of individually measuring the flow rates of oil, water and gas over at least a portion of its operating range. The well testing system has a fluid system including a gas leg conduit fluidly coupling a separator to a multiphase flow metering system, a liquid leg conduit fluidly coupling the separator to the multiphase flow metering system, and a bypass conduit directing multiphase fluid to the multiphase flow metering system while bypassing the separator. The valve is configured to selectively route fluid flow through the flow system to selectively bypass the separator when the multiphase flow metering system is available to measure the flow rates of each of oil, water, and gas in unseparated multiphase fluid from the well.
