Selecting the right technology for a flow measurement application can be a daunting task. In the case that several technologies will work for a particular application, minimizing energy costs can help narrow the selection. This article discusses ways to assess the energy costs associated with a particular flow meter technology to inform your decision.

With depths as deep as 10,000 ft., flow measurement in subsea oil and gas production systems represents a challenge. The complexity of subsea production systems ranges from single satellite wells with independent tie back lines to complex multiple well sites with a network of lines, manifolds, and other modules.

Entrained gas can disturb the sensitivity of mass flow measurement of liquids, decreasing accuracy or even stopping measurement completely. New Coriolis mass flow meter technology has come on the market that ensures both stable and uninterrupted measurements with high gas content.
Offering on-site results in an easy-to-use, rugged, portable lab, Hach’s Hydraulic Fracturing Water Analysis Laboratory covers parameters critical to water analysis in oil and gas applications, including source water, fracturing fluid, produced water, flowback water, water treatment, drilling fluids, and enhanced oil recovery.
The PAD-I standard models are constructed using an Inconel 600* rupture disc welded to a 316 stainless steel body and support ring. This provides a one-piece, accurate, and robust rupture disc assembly that can withstand an operating ratio of up to 90 percent of the burst pressure.
