October 30, 2017 - Emerson has launched a smaller version of its Roxar Multiphase Meter (MPFM) 2600 - a modular flow meter specifically designed to address the flow profiles of North American shale fields and provide a meter suitable for the lifetime of the wells. Through switching from one separator per well to one Roxar multiphase meter per well, operators may reduce facilities capital investments at the well pad by over 50 percent, supporting Emerson’s Project Certainty initiative as operators strive for Top Quartile Performance in capital efficiency in unconventional assets. The MPFM 2600 is part of the scalable Roxar Multiphase Meter product family built on measurement principles used in over 1,500 meter installations worldwide, and enables shale operators to monitor the flow from the well stream continuously and in real-time. The meter, which has an internal diameter of 35 mm (1.38 inches), specifically aims to address unconventional fields’ unique well characteristics. In addition to the functionality and performance of other Roxar Multiphase Meters, this smaller version comes with improved algorithms and models, and a brand new operator interface. The interface is designed to streamline installation and commissioning and provide improved graphical views for trending, visualization of well data, and configuration of the meter. The Roxar MPFM 2600 includes three main modules - electrical impedance measurements, a field replaceable insert venturi, and a gamma system. Together, these are used for determining phase fractions and flow rates. The meter can be used for applications such as flow back measurements, well testing and allocation metering, and can detect changes in flow rates and fractions immediately, providing necessary royalty payments and enabling precise actions to be taken.
