Weatherford has launched its new product ForeSite® Flow at ADIPEC 2019, the first ever flow measurement solution driven by production 4.0 intelligence.

ForeSite Flow is a full-range, non-nuclear multiphase flowmeter paired with Weatherford ForeSite intelligence. The technology provides precise flow measurements for any fluid mixture without separation.

By removing bulky test separators from the wellsite and eliminating nuclear-source management typically associated with other inline multiphase flowmeters, ForeSite Flow reduces both capital and operating expenses while increasing well-test frequency and accuracy.

Flow data can be viewed remotely on any desktop or mobile device via intuitive dashboards that display real-time production rates and fluid properties to reveal reservoir behaviour. Operators are able to access real-time data for wells with any gas-to-liquid ratio, with digitalisation capabilities automating well-test processes and validation.

"Production 4.0 capabilities give us the power to drive more productivity while enhancing safety for our customers," said Kyle Chapman, president of production at Weatherford. "By moving beyond legacy flow measurement equipment, we not only have a direct window into reservoir behaviour, but we also reduce HSE risk, enhance personnel efficiency, and significantly shrink CAPEX and OPEX spend."
