Modum Flow Flowmetering system

Calculate production flow rates in real time and review them remotely

Modum Flow™ flowmetering system is a cost-effective choke that calculates production flow in real time, enabling continuous, real-time remote access to the data and optional remote control of choke settings. This enables you to respond quickly to production changes, reduce well testing schedules for stable wells, and focus more testing resources on wells where changes have been detected.

Intended to complement conventional separators and multiphase flowmeters, the system approximates production rates from pressure and temperature measurements and delivers the data directly to your SCADA system.

Install on your existing Cameron choke

Modum Flow system can be installed onto any adjustable or fixed Cameron choke:

  • For fixed-choke applications, the system’s flow controller measures production rate and pressure drop across the choke.
  • For adjustable-choke applications with remote actuation, the system can obtain flow measurements and has an optional feature that enables self-regulation of flow rate or pressure using its onboard flow controller.

The system’s flow controller can be connected to your existing SCADA system or an SLB AgoraGateway™ ruggedized edge computing device to enable remote monitoring.

Manage well testing budgets by planning based on actual well conditions

Because of their high cost, multiphase flowmeters and separators are often shared among several wells for periodic production measurements. The gap between measurements leaves you unaware of well behavior changes that could be remedied—perhaps at lower cost—before the next well test.

To optimize calculation accuracy, fluid property data from periodic well testing is used to recalibrate the system. You can then use the Modum Flow system’s data to plan well test frequency based on actual well conditions rather than calendar dates.

Modum Flow system comprises a flow controller, temperature and pressure sensors, and an LCD that shows flow rate, valve position (if applicable), inlet and outlet pressure, pressure differential, voltage, and current.
