Key measurements, such as flow rate, fluid properties, composition, pressure, and temperature—all captured at live well conditions—help identify what's happening downhole and at the surface with greater certainty. Continuous, in-depth knowledge helps pinpoint where improvements can be made, efficiency increased, and field investments focused.
With the information these measurements provide, past downhole events can be better interpreted, and the future impact on production predicted.
The surface testing equipment performs a wide range of functions: control pressure and flow rates at the surface, accurately meter and collect surface fluid samples, and separate and dispose of the resulting fluids.
The multiphase flowmeter provides critical well diagnostic information without the complexity of conventional testing operations: continuous measurements of the well phases are measured without separation.
