A 12Ē MPFM 1900VI Multiphase Flow Meter had been supplied to Norwegian oil and gas company, Statoil. The Multiphase Flow Meter, which was installed earlier this month at Statoilís Norne field on the Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel, is the largest multiphase meter ever to be delivered to the oil and gas industry.
The meter has been installed on a riser tie-in line carrying multiphase production from five separate flow lines from the St?r and Svale satellites. When production starts up later this year, the meter will monitor the riser production rates for the purpose of allocation among field partners. The commissioning of the meter will be completed at the arrival of first oil.
