October 20, 2014 - Yokogawa released Complete Net Oil Solution for advanced net oil and real time gas void fraction measurement for use in upstream oil and gas. Both measurements can be made in the same device, seamlessly switching between oil/water measurements and oil/gas measurements. This will ensure a repeatable and accurate net oil measurement.
Complete Net Oil solution encompasses both the net oil and gas void fraction functionality. The ROTAMASS Coriolis meter switches seamlessly between the two functions with no disruption to production or the measurement. The Complete Net Oil solution is adapted to each unique well site and is adjustable as the well changes and the field matures. This reduces inaccurate readings of oil from separators and leads to a more real time net oil measurement in the one device. Product Features 1. Advanced net oil/water cut measurement: Yokogawa’s Net Oil measurement delivers real-time values of oil from the separator by utilizing precise mass flow and density measurements from the ROTAMASS. The oil/water ratios are determined by combining internal algorithms with API oil density curves and the well’s unique produced water properties. 2. Real Time Gas Void Fraction: When the measured density is lower than the known density value for the oil at the specific operating temperature, the internal algorithms generate an operating density based on API density calculations, allowing for a corrected volumetric flow, negating the volume error generated by the gas. 3. ROTAMASS yields continuous water cut measurement and gas void fraction measurement, switching seamlessly in the same meter. 4. In addition to the standard ROTAMASS Coriolis outputs (mass, volume, density, temperature), the following information can be provided by the unit:
- Total net oil values
- API barrels correct to 60F
- Water cut values
- Gas void fraction value
- Total gross volume (oil)
- Total mass (oil)
5. Available in MODBUS communication for easy integration into already existing control, PLC, SCADA systems
The ROTAMASS Coriolis based mass flowmeter enables the precise measurement of mass flow, volume, density, and temperature. It is a true multivariable flow meter. Every aspect of the ROTAMASS is designed for efficiency, performance and accuracy. Its dual bent tubes allow for unsurpassed stability and accuracy; its self-draining construction allows for easier startup and shut downs; and its box-in-box design ensures no interference from the process or the installation and surrounding equipment.
