Upstream Oil Allocation Measurement using Coriolis Technology in Permian Basin

Includes a Live Event on 10/06/2020 at 10:00 AM (EDT)

Oil allocation is one of the key processes for every oil and gas operator. While there are many measurement technologies available for flow measurement, Coriolis has become the technology of choice for many compelling reasons. This presentation will uncover the benefits using Coriolis meters in allocation measurement. An important capability of Coriolis is the ability to detect water in oil and calculate percentage of water cut for more accurate allocation in three-phase separator and a key enabler in two-phase separator allocation measurement. A proper net oil calculation (NOC) setup is key for repeatable and accurate measurement.  We will review the allocation measurement in general and fundamentals of Coriolis measurement principles, as well as understanding key attributes of different Coriolis meters in the market and why some work and some do not in upstream environment. In depth discussion with field examples of using Coriolis diagnostics variables to troubleshoot separator efficiency and issues will also be presented.
