The Vx Omni subsea multiphase flowmeter is a reduced-footprint, highly accurate flowmeter that takes application of flowmeter technology to 20,000 psi while
- expanding on capital efficiency
- expediting lead times
- achieving unparalleled reliability.
It opens up new possibilities with its capability for the highest accuracy available in all applications, pressures, and environments for all fluid phases.
Reduced lead times
The number of parts in the Vx Omni flowmeter have been reduced by approximately 66%. More than 90% of these components, including the most advanced instrumentation, are standardized for pressure rating, process fluids compatibility, temperature, flow rate, and water depth.
The Vx Omni flowmeter offers new possibilities to obtaining data about gas, oil, and water flow from subsea development wells, including those to remote locations. It can provide substantial cost savings through downscaling or eliminating surface well testing facilities and subsea test lines. Design simplification has resulted in reduced number of parts and complexity.
Redundancy, retrievable electronics, and condition monitoring are built into the Vx Subsea flowmeter design, resulting in improved reliability and availability. Reliability projection indicates that the flowmeter’s mean time between failure is 216 years.
Leveraging Vx multiphase well testing technology, the Vx Omni flowmeter requires no process control or complex signal reintegration because it is insensitive to the chaotic nature of multiphase flow. The technique ensures accurate and repeatable flow rate measurements in any multiphase flow regime and in production fluids ranging from heavy oil to wet gas.
