Mimic well test runs and achieve optimal flow rate predictions
All assets frequently execute well testing to understand the performance of a well and associated flow rates. The sequential testing pattern causes a constraint on the number of feasible tests run and may influence test results due to conditional changes. A self-calibrating, real-time virtual flow meter can continuously mimic well test runs. The Value Gain – reduced well testing frequency, less equipment and operational costs and more accurate flow rate predictions.
The cause for most intermittent flaring lies in excess gas needing to be flared in order to assure HSE regulations are adhered to. We can help to predict flow rates and instabilities of your individual wells and pipelines. The Value Gain – optimized flow stabilities and reduced shut-down frequencies improve production volumes, energy efficiencies and related emission intensity.
Typically, production models in late life assets are not further maintained, often driven by the perception that solutions may not provide continuous accuracy but at economically-exhaustive price points. The FLUX VFM will provide accurate, reliable and economical flow rate predictions. We have seen that this can typically help improve production by up to 1%.
