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.

CO2 Solutions Provides Update on Carbon Capture Project with Husky Energy

CO2 Solutions Inc., a leader in the field of enzyme-enabled carbon capture technology, has provided an update on progress of its pilot project with Husky Energy for the capture of CO2 in the oil industry.

As announced in April 2014, CO2 Solutions entered into a Collaboration Agreement with Husky Energy to install and operate a pilot unit at Husky's Pikes Peak South heavy oil site in Saskatchewan. To accommodate operating parameters within the project budget, the facility will now be sized to capture up to 10 tonnes of CO2 per day. The project is funded in part by the Government of Canada's ecoENERGY Innovation Initiative (ecoEII) program, as previously announced on January 24, 2013.

World’s First Standard for Collapsible Fuel Tanks Released

This past July, the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) released the first edition of the CAN/CSA B-837 collapsible fabric storage tanks (bladders) regulation. This new standard represents the world’s first standard for collapsible bladder fuel storage tanks or pillow tanks.

For years, regulators, operators and manufacturers in Canada had no credible reference document that detailed the minimum requirements for the use of these storage bladders. This new standard provides industry with a reliable source of information to ensure that the use of collapsible fuel bladder tanks meets the challenges of Canada’s harsh arctic conditions which is where they are typically deployed.

Beamex Launches Mike’s Calibration Corner

Beamex, one of the world’s leading providers of calibration solutions, presents the best practices for advanced process instrument calibration through a new series of videos in which a Beamex Calibration Consultant, Michael Frackowiak, shows the calibration process in a hands on manner.

Michael Frackowiak is a calibration expert with years of experience with Beamex products, initially as a hands-on calibration technician, and most recently as a Calibration Consultant at Beamex UK. Mike is involved in Beamex’s newest venture, Mike’s Calibration Corner, a trio series with three videos in each. During the first series, Mike shows (1) how to automatically calibrate a multichannel FOUNDATION Fieldbus temperature transmitter with a Beamex MC6 and Beamex FB temperature block, (2) how to calibrate a pressure measurement loop containing a pressure transmitter and control room display with a Beamex MC6 calibrator and Beamex PGM pressure pump, and (3) how to automatically calibrate a WirelessHART temperature transmitter using a Beamex MC6.

ST100 Thermal Mass Flow Meter Provides Precise Gas Measurement for Mud Logging Operations

Oil/gas engineers looking for a next-generation air/gas flow meter to support mud logging operations will find that the future-ready ST100 Series Thermal Mass Air/Gas Flow Meter from Fluid Components International (FCI) offers the ability to measure flare gas flows under variable and low flow rate conditions.

Upstream oil/gas production companies around the globe depend on mud logging service companies to analyze mud samples that help them maintain the correct direction for their drilling field operations. In mud logging, samples of rock cuttings from bore holes are brought to the surface by recirculating drilling media (mud) for analysis by a mobile laboratory to determine the lithology and fluid content of the sample.
