Virtual Flow Metering Services

Monitor well performance.

Determine liquid flow rate and water cut at any time

Virtual flow metering service uses interpretation of electric submersible pumps performance to provide real-time production flow rate analysis including high-frequency liquid flow rate and water-cut calculations. 

Once calibrated, the proprietary flow rate calculation algorithm is valid at any point on the pump curve. This helps to optimize testing costs by reducing the required frequency of physical testing. The liquid rate can be calculated even in the presence of phase segregation during startup and slugging, which is typically caused by high gas volume fraction.

Agnostic of the brand or type of ESP installed, the service is especially useful for wells requiring back allocation or reservoir pressure monitoring and wells with intermittent production. With a dedicated team to analyze and interpret data, historical logs, and regular updates, this service can provide well monitoring performance for the life of the ESP.

ESP data is transmitted to the PCL service engine, which generates flow rates that form the basis of reservoir performance measurements that operators can use to improve well and field performance.

 

Monitor reservoir and inflow performance in challenging conditions

In waterfloods, calculated water cut can be used to estimate incremental reserves for each well, and reservoir pressure can be monitored without buildup, even on low-mobility wells with long transients and intermittent production. Reservoir flow regimes can also be identified on wells with rapidly changing flow rate and pressure, such as unconventional wells.
