New IIoT-enabled service supports multiphase flowmeters in shale operations

news item image
Emerson has launched a new service that leverages cloud-based technologies to remotely monitor the performance of flowmeters at the wellhead, helping oil and gas producers optimise production while reducing costs and enhancing safety.

The Roxar 2600 Multiphase Flow Meter Performance Monitoring service provides operators with actionable recommendations to optimise meter performance and enable proactive maintenance, based on advanced, continuous data collected from an onsite multiphase flow meter and analysed remotely by Emerson employees.

The service offers performance monitoring of Emerson’s Roxar 2600 Multiphase Flow Meters, which have been used for more than 25 years to accurately measure well production rates. The platform offers solutions for well testing, unmanned wellhead platforms, production metering, wellhead monitoring and shale oil applications.

Using next-generation network technology, Emerson can remotely deliver advanced diagnostics, data interpretation and reporting from the multiphase flowmeters on a regular schedule.

The service uses secure connectivity architectures for the safe transfer of data from the flowmeter to the cloud where it can be analysed. This enables issues to be identified without having to send personnel to the field and before they become bigger problems that could potentially impact production.

Periodic performance reports, regular ongoing data sharing and evaluation of meter performance provide operators with a complete overview of operational continuity.
