The role of separators is to divide the oil phase from the gas and water phases to produce sellable oil or gas. There are two- or three-phase separators, on- or offshore, horizontal or vertical, low or high pressure. A test separator is used for periodic well testing and a production separator for continuous production measurement.
It is important for Operators to measure the flow rates of the oil, gas and water output:
When wells are aging, more water will be produced over time. Therefore, it is important to measure the watercut % of water in oil in addition to the flowrates. The Xsens technology measures both flowrate and watercut from the same meter, offering a 2-in-1 solution compared to traditional inline meters which only measure one property. The Xsens meters come standard with an integrated flow computer to provide you with net flow rates. It is possible to have displays attached if local readings are required.
Xsens patented clamp on multipath ultrasonic technology is perfectly suitable to be installed on the outlets of separators to measure with high accuracy:
