Emerson launches downhole flow sensor system


Roxar Downhole Flow Sensor System improves understanding of reservoir flow from different well zones and branches and opens new window into subsea production operations

Emerson Process Management has launched its new downhole flow sensor system. The new system will, for the first time, generate multiphase flow measurements from downhole in the well, leading to increased operator understanding of reservoir flow and zonal contributions from wells and increased production control and optimization.

“Probably the single piece of data operators want to know most about, as part of their reservoir monitoring activities today, is the flow from individual wells. Yet, the growing complexity of well architecture, with an increase in multilateral and multi-zone wells, has led to operators having to settle on total production flow data rather than flow from specific well zones”, said Terje Baustad of Emerson Process Management.

“That’s why the Roxar Downhole Flow Sensor System represents such a step-change in reservoir monitoring and flow assurance. We have taken multiphase measurement downhole to provide full multiphase measurements, including fluid fractions and flow rates, from either single bore or multilateral well configurations and to help operators increase field recovery.”
