Flow meter aids on WAG sites

Water-Alternating-Gas (WAG) Injection is an enhanced oil recovery (EOR) technique that helps recover the oil in a mature reservoir, which has been in production for many years. This technique makes it is possible to recover significantly more oil by alternately injecting carbon dioxide (CO2) gas with water.

In a typical WAG system, the V-Cone Flow Meter is installed as a master meter at the CO2 source with stainless steel piping split run to as many as 16 injection wells.

Even with 16 pipe runs, the V-Cone master meter maintains excellent accuracy when the volumes of the16 pipe runs are added together. The meter itself also requires virtually no maintenance – only a simple calibration check of the transmitter.

Engineers in the oil and gas industry rely on the V-Cone Flow Meter to remain accurate in the toughest applications. Its low-maintenance, no-moving-parts design is proven to remain accurate for 25 or more years, according to its manufacturer, and all but eliminates the need to shut down production for calibrations, inspections or regular primary element replacement.

With built-in flow conditioning, the V-Cone Flow Meter features advanced differential pressure (dP) technology to nearly eliminate the upstream and downstream straight pipe runs required by other dP instruments, such as orifice plates and venture tubes. Requiring only 0-3 straight pipe diameters upstream and 0-1 downstream for precise operation, it reduces typical straight runs by 70 percent or more as compared to traditional flow measurement technologies.

PSAC lowers 2016 drilling activity forecast

The Petroleum Services Association of Canada (PSAC), in its second update to the 2016 Canadian Drilling Activity Forecast, has revised the forecasted number of wells drilled (rig releases) across Canada for 2016 to 3,315 wells. This represents a decrease of 1,835 wells and an approximate 36 per cent decline from PSAC’s original 2016 Drilling Activity Forecast released in early November 2015. PSAC based its updated 2016 forecast on average natural gas prices of $1.60 CDN/mcf (AECO), crude oil prices of US$35/barrel (WTI) and the Canada-US exchange rate averaging $0.75.
