    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...

    The Right Multiphase Flowmeter for the Job

    How many times have you heard the old adage “Use the right tool for the job”? For quite some time, oil and gas separators have been considered the “right tool” for well fluids' separation as well as flow metering. In fact, it’s not uncommon to find a separator dedicated to every well at a drill site, in spite of the large footprint, inherent downtime – for inspection, recalibration or other maintenance – and extraneous...

    Enabling Competitive Wellhead Testing with Advanced Phase Measurement and Coriolis Meters

    Cyclonic separators need to be sized so that no gas can be pulled in to the liquid leg of the separator. If gas is pulled into the liquid leg, large errors occur within the net measurement. This equates to higher equipment costs, and more valuable well pad real estate for well-testing equipment. Utilizing Micro Motion 5700 transmitter with Advanced Phase Measurement (APM) software has allowed one customer to develop a...
