Schlumberger introduces new-generation surface multiphase flowmeter

HOUSTON -- Schlumberger has released the Vx Spectra surface multiphase flowmeter, which is the latest generation of multiphase flowmeters for offshore and land applications. The new multiphase flowmeter enables operators to obtain flowrate measurements during production testing and permanent monitoring.

The new flowmeter uses full gamma spectroscopy to provide high accuracy in multiphase production measurement. The flowmeter introduces two new venturi throat sizes adapted to an extended range of flowrates. The Vx Spectra 19-mm monitors low-rate producing wells down to 30 bpd, and the 40-mm venturi version introduces a mid-range multiphase meter with high flexibility to match oil and gas production flowrates. Modular design configurations offer easy integration with operators’ production facilities.

To confirm the metrological performance of the Vx Spectra surface multiphase flowmeter, extensive testing was conducted, acquiring more than 400 test points at four industry reference flow loop metering facilities. Tests were conducted with various fluids and at different pressures and flow regimes.
