Emerson Process Management has launched its next generation Roxar subsea Wetgas Meter for accurate production measurement, reduced risk, and improved flow assurance in gas and gas condensate fields.

Hydrates, corrosion, scaling and water coning in the reservoir represent the biggest challenges to offshore gas producers and are all caused by formation water breakthrough into the well. The new meter allows the earliest possible detection of water from gas wells. The new meter comes with unparalleled water sensitivity, accuracy and rapid response together with the industry’s first built-in salinity measurement system.

The meter’s microwave-based measurements and multivariate analysis functionality are operational in all field conditions and fluid compositions. The meter detects changes in water content of the flowing well at as little as 0.2 ppm (parts per million) - sensitivity that has never been reached before and that represents less than a droplet of water finely distributed in a volume equal to that of four car fuel tanks.

“As oil & gas producers look at more ways to improve the bottom line, the innovative enhancements to our new wet gas meter couldn’t have come at a better time,” said Svein Erik Gregerson, product manager, flow metering at Emerson Process Management. “More and more operators are making wet gas metering an integral part of their future flow assurance, production optimization and hydrocarbon allocation strategies.”
