Abatement Of GHG Emissions By Simplifying Field Architecture With Multiphase Flowmeters In Onshore US Shale: A Field Case Study

Methane is a powerful greenhouse gas (GHG). Over 20 years, it is 80 times more potent at warming than carbon dioxide, with onshore conventional wellsite production facilities being the source of more than 50% of petroleum methane emissions in the United States (US). An operator working in the gas condensate window of the Eagle Ford shale has been diligently looking for innovative transition technologies to help minimize methane emissions from wellsite sources. Other key sustainability attributes for the project were capex and opex savings while simplifying well-pad architecture.

A Robust Data-Driven Method Using Multiphase Flow Meter Measurements for a Fully Autonomous Gas-Lift Optimization Featured Image

A Robust Data-Driven Method Using Multiphase Flow Meter Measurements for a Fully Autonomous Gas-Lift Optimization

Gas-Lift Optimization essentially relies primarily on the relationship between the Well Production Rate and the Gas-Lift Injection Rate. This presentation will show you how this robust Data Driven approach remove well models, correlations and personnel from the optimization process and improve drastically the wells’ performance in a fully autonomous manner.

Upstream Oil Allocation Measurement using Coriolis Technology in Permian Basin Featured Image

Upstream Oil Allocation Measurement using Coriolis Technology in Permian Basin

We will review the allocation measurement in general and fundamentals of Coriolis measurement principles, as well as understanding key attributes of different Coriolis meters in the market and why some work and some do not in upstream environment. In depth discussion with field examples of using Coriolis diagnostics variables to troubleshoot separator efficiency and issues will also be presented.

Multiphase Flow Measurement Sensing Domains, Part 1: Electromagnetics Featured Image

Multiphase Flow Measurement Sensing Domains, Part 1: Electromagnetics

Many unique MPFM systems have been realized over the years, utilizing a wide variety of physics to interpret the flow rates and phase content of multiphase flows. In this webinar series, we categorize multiphase flow ‘sensing domains’. In part 1 of this series, we progressively discuss measurement physics within the electromagnetic sensing domain, advancing in frequency from steady-state electromagnetic phenomena to high frequency electromagnetic phenomena.

Equation of State Primer - Historical Development of the Cubic EOS to Present Day Forms Featured Image

Equation of State Primer - Historical Development of the Cubic EOS to Present Day Forms

The development of the van der Waals (VDW) cubic equation of state (EOS) more than century ago was a watershed moment in the prediction of volumetric, thermodynamic and phase equilibrium properties of fluids. A brief account of the historical contributions to EOS development prior to VDW is offered. The equation proposed by Johannes Diderik van der Waals in his celebrated thesis presented in 1873 at the University of Leiden is then analyzed. A chronological walk through of the most important developments in cubic EOS from the early 1900s to present is summarized. The application of cubic EOS to mixtures and the development of mixing rules are briefly described. Finally, a critical discussion of various EOS parameters including model parameters, characterization parameters, and tuning parameters is presented.

Protect Wells During Frac Plug Drillouts and Well Flowback Operations using Multiphase Flow Meters

In this webinar we will present the summary of the results obtained from over 200 FPDO and flowback operations in the United States and Argentina. The data acquired using surface multiphase flowmeters (MPFM) was essential to track the onset of rate instabilities and sand production to limit fracture damage and proppant flowback. The results show that operating a well within the safe stability limits of the hydraulic fracture network minimizes risk of fracture damage and maximizes well performance.​
