WetGas Meter

WetGas Meter

The Roxar WetGas Meter (WGM) is unique instrument allowing accurate measurement of hydrocarbon flow rates and water production, with a very compact mechanical solution.
Accurate measurement of wet gas flow including water and liquid detection is crucial for the operators of wet gas producing fields for many reasons:

  • Well testing
  • Improved reservoir management
  • Production allocation
  • Optimized chemical injection to prevent hydrate formation and corrosion

Direct Water Measurement

The Roxar WGM is the only available meter with online and direct measurement of water in in a wet gas flow. This unique functionality allows direct measurement of water at an early stage and as soon as it starts to be produced from the well. This Information Is valuable for reservoir management, for flow assurance and for optimizing the production process.

The meter can also distinguish between condensed water and saline formation water such that early remedial actions can be Initiated

Well & Completion Downhole 

Permanent Downhole Monitoring System

Permanent Downhole Monitoring System

PDMS provides reliable real-time access to downhole instrumentation from any location; improving reservoir management, well planning and resource exploitation.

PDMS is highly robust and reliable for onshore -, offshore - and sub sea wells. Roxar systems are engineered and customized in house giving a fast turnaround between customer decision and final installation. Permanently installed downhole instrumentation provides simple, cost-effective and intervention free reservoir surveillance-on a continuous basis.

PDMS is deployed in production, injection and observation wells, and also in conjunction with instrumentation of highly complex multi-zone intelligent wells.

PDMS can be supplied as a stand-alone system or as a completely integrated system. Available in numerous configurations, the Roxar PDh1S typically provides information on reservoir pressure and temperature. However, measurements such as flow rate, fluid fraction, sand detection and chemical properties add value to the system. In cooperation with partners Rover also provides complete downhole instrumentation for permanent seismic monitoring, in conjunction with both 4-D surveillance and micro-seismic activity. Also integrated systems for point pressure and temperature, together with distributed temperature sensing along the wellbore (fiberoptic DTS) are available.

Intelligent Network

Intelligent Network

Intelligent well technology makes downhole instrumentation more complex. Roxar has developed a new downhole instrumentation system called Intelligent downhole Network (IDN).

The system encompasses

  • A new generation of pressure and temperature gauges - RQPG-HS
  • An advanced mufti-purpose downhole Interface Module - RODIM
  • A subsea/topside downhole Network Controller - DHNC

IDN is designed to meet the most stringent specifications, such as extreme temperatures, pressures and accelerations and total lifetime. It serves both regular single well systems and complex intelligent well systems.

IDN is designed to take an infrastructure host role in future well completions offering communication, power and interface for a variety of downhole instruments and devises.

Over the years, Roxar has installed some 700 Permanent Downhole Monitoring systems. As the Norwegian North Sea is the company's home ground, this is also where most installations have been made, and where Roxar has held a leading position for years. Lately the company has performed an increasing number of Installations in other regions of the world - a trend that Roxar expects to continue.
