Vx Spectra Surface Multiphase Flowmeter

Continuous multiphase flow metering in all well conditions

The Vx Spectra™ surface multiphase flowmeter (MPFM) is our flagship SLB MPFM based on rugged Vx multiphase well testing technology. The Vx Spectra flowmeter delivers continuous, accurate, and repeatable measurements in a wide range of production environments—all the way to high-rate oil and wet gas wells. The technology helps you determine flow rates without the need for separation and gives you full visibility on your well performance.

  • Surface well testing (onshore or offshore)
  • Continuous production monitoring
  • Fiscal allocation and custody transfer
  • Well performance evaluation
  • Artificial lift system surveillance

Real-time measurements, real-time insights

The superior metrological performance of every flowmeter is extensively tested and verified throughout the build process, including final flow checks in our state-of-the-art flow loop laboratory at our Singapore multiphase manufacturing facility and Well Test Technology Center.

The compact, configurable Vx Spectra flowmeter uses full-gamma spectroscopy to accurately capture multiphase flow dynamics for real-time monitoring and analysis.

Repeatable, accurate flow rate measurements over long durations, unaffected by foam or emulsion
Real-time 24 /7 monitoring for rapid production optimization
Reduced footprint versus bulk tanks or separator
Reduced field development costs
Simplified wellsite architecture and maintenance
No separation required (reduces flaring)
Enablement of unmanned metering operations
  • Full-gamma spectroscopy
  • Single-point measurement
  • Range of sizes covering a broad operating envelope
  • High-frequency measurements for detailed flow dynamics
  • Compact, robust design
