Accuracy and Consistency in Multiphase Flow Measurement

Multiphase flow meters measure the individual flow rates of oil, gas, and water flowing from oil & gas production wells. Expro’s Ali Abu Ikhzam shares background on their collaborative work with Emerson.

Amidst the rapid transition in the energy industry, the challenges of flow management are intensifying. Accuracy and consistency in measurements are essential for effective flow management, and this is precisely where Multiphase Flow Metering becomes necessary.

Throughout my journey in this field, I’ve encountered various commercial Multiphase Flow Meters, each with its strengths and weaknesses, influenced by the technologies governing their measurement philosophy. Yet, I must acknowledge that Emerson’s Roxar 2600 multiphase flow meter stands out with its exceptional offerings.

Upon joining Expro, the industry leader in fully integrated flow management solutions, I found myself immersed in a culture that resonated with my vision. Expro has recognized the importance of multiphase metering for flow management since the early 2000s, positioning itself as a frontrunner in MPFM services providers, consistently trusting in the Roxar series.

The synergy between Expro and Emerson’s experts is a marriage of expertise, ensuring a concoction of proven accuracy, guaranteed readiness, and bespoke solutions for industry challenges. One of the fruits of this collaboration was the successful deployment of the integration between Expro’s phase sampler and the Roxar 2600 MPFM, a testament to the pursuit of MPFM independence from PVT data.

What sets Expro apart goes beyond technology; it’s about the people—the experts who’ve left their indelible mark in both Expro and Emerson throughout their careers. It’s not just a convergence of business objectives; it’s the in-house expertise, modern systems, and the integrability of solutions, with a 25-year excellent track record.

It’s a shared history, a tale of mutual contributions culminating in top-notch services. Nowadays, both companies’ solutions have evolved, reaching the zenith with the Roxar 2600 Rapid Adaptive version and the Expro phase sampler. Yet, like any tool, efficacy hinges on the human touch, the expertise and acumen of experts—in the hands of both teams to reach their maximum potential.

Our alliance explores Expro’s interest in the future with Emerson, marking a transformative collaboration—actively shaping the trajectory of advanced Multiphase Flow Meter applications, echoing recent industry trends.

As part of Expro’s future engineers, I can say this collaboration anticipates and shapes industry trends. We believe that embracing data-driven and automated solutions extends our services beyond and above, expanding our roles in flow management and control. With Emerson’s innovation enabling capabilities of handling harder flow profiles, as the industry targets more challenging resources, our collaboration pioneers the future with shared interests and insights.

Join us at the February 27-29, 2024 Emerson Exchange in Düsseldorf, Germany, where we’re not just following the future; we’re defining it. The journey into tomorrow’s flow management services awaits—see you in Düsseldorf!
