KROHNE presents the webinar "Why did a major oil producer choose new mass flowmeter technology?" on January 26, 2017, 10:00 AM EST (7 AM PST), aimed at operators of upstream and downstream oil flow applications.

The webinar will present the case study of Denver-based Bonanza Creek Energy, Inc. The exploration and production company is focused on extracting oil and associated liquids-rich natural gas in Colorado's Denver-Julesburg Basin, a major oil and gas field that is being actively developed through the use of horizontal drilling and multi-stage fracture stimulation.

They required an accurate and reliable way to measure how much oil and water each well was producing. Tank gauging is the standard method for these challenging applications, but while simple and relatively accurate, tank gauging is time consuming, costly, and entails some safety risks. To account for the production variations among the wells and provide accurate well allocation measurement information, each well on a pad had to flow into a separate tank.

Bonanza Creek was looking for a cost effective alternative way to provide an accurate oil meter at each wellhead, where the oil flows into a separator that separates the water, gas, and oil. They anticipated there would be gas entrained in the fluid coming out of the separator, so they needed an option that could handle entrained gas. This webinar reviews the application requirements and explore the unique details of the OPTIMASS mass flow meter technology that allow the device to operate continually regardless of entrained gas content, to 100% by volume.
