Implementation of Multiphase Metering on Unmanned Wellhead Platform

Monitoring of the multiphase flow at the wellhead eliminates the need for dedicated test lines from remote wellhead completions, as well as the need for a dedicated test separator at the processing facility. At this field, the deployment of a multiphase meter has contributed in improving the economy of the full project and improving the understanding of the hydrodynamics of the reservoir near the wellbore. This experience demonstrates that MPFM can be a very reliable solution for well testing and well monitoring; nevertheless success requires a minimum involvement of all people (project people, specialists, users) from design studies to operations.
