    Blog: Avoiding Missed Gas Volume Flow Measurements in Plunger Lift Wells

    Measuring flow rates on producing gas wells can be difficult on plunger lift applications. The mechanical plungers are used to remove water slugs which build up and reduce production rates. When the plunger pulls up the well bore, the differential pressure (DP) flow measurement can spike beyond the range of the DP transmitter. This spike is caused by a surge in the flow of natural gas behind the plunger. This short...

    Flow Solutions Blog: It is time to get operational flow measurement uncertainty under control

    Current oil & gas market conditions are putting greater focus on enhancing profitability using existing assets. This has also intensified the tension between cost and risk. Even investments that can optimize costs, minimize losses, or mitigate operational risk are being scrutinized much more diligently today. Flow measurement is a critical component in measuring for losses and for accurate custody transfer, so there...

    Flow Solutions Blog: Achieving Improved Combustion Control for Fired Heaters is Easy, Right?

    When you can control processes in refineries and petrochemical plants, you can better control the revenue generated by those facilities. The heat from fired heaters drives those processes, generating the steam for boiler applications, helping to catalyze cracking, fractionation or distillation. It stands to reason that by controlling the heat, or energy consumption you’ll have one part of maximizing the revenue mastered...

    Flow Solutions Blog: Ensure the Reliability of Your Small Volume Liquid Prover

    One of the most important elements of a fiscal liquid hydrocarbon metering installation is proving the validity of the flowmeter. Proving validates consistent meter accuracy, meter trending, and proves traceable evidence of meter performance. That is why maintaining the prover in top working condition is key to ensuring reliable, long term measurement accuracy. There are many factors that can affect the maintenance and...

    Flow Solutions Blog: Flow Expert Webinar: Limiting Gas Measurement Uncertainty in the Field

    Current international gas measurement standards for fiscal flowmeters focus only on the design and installation of the meters and don’t cover meter performance under field conditions. So how do you assure measurement accuracy of fiscal gas flowmeter systems in field conditions? And how much are unknown issues costing your gas measurement operation? Join us for our upcoming webinar on April 4 at 10 am CST and learn how...

    Flow Solutions Blog: Say goodbye to wasteful strategies for chemical injection

    How much does your company spend every year on chemicals? For most, chemical injection is a sunk cost of production – it can be a challenge to track how much is spent versus how much chemical is actually required. Yet without preventive chemicals, scales and waxes could plug tubing and shutting down facilities; hydrates could block production, costing up to $1M/day in shut-in production as it’s dissociated. Without corrosion...
