Schlumberger introduces new-generation surface multi-phase flowmeter

Offshore staff

HOUSTON Schlumberger has released its Vx Spectra surface multi-phase flowmeter, its latest generation of multi-phase flowmeters for offshore and land applications. The new multi-phase flowmeter enables operators to obtain flow rate measurements in production testing and permanent monitoring.

Schlumberger says Vx Spectra technology delivers flow measurements in wider applications than conventional metering systems, enabling measurements in various flow conditions from heavy oil to wet gas. The new flowmeter uses full gamma spectroscopy to provide a high level of accuracy in multi-phase production measurement.

The flowmeter introduces two new venturi throat sizes adapted to an extended range of flow rates. The Vx Spectra 19-mm (3/4-in.) flowmeter monitors low-rate producing wells down to 30 b/d, and the 40-mm (≈1.5-in) venturi version introduces a mid-range multi-phase meter with high flexibility to match oil and gas production flow rates. Modular design configurations integrate with operators’ production facilities.
