Series of well optimization case studies with multiphase meters I

Surpetrol presents a field case of improving well productivity with data analytics & multiphase meters. Continuous monitoring of the flowing production has allowed us to evaluate the impact of scale inhibitors, scheduled cleaning programs and optimize well productivity. The figure shows the production trend of an offshore oil well with gas-lift in the Gulf of Mexico before and after the injection of the inhibitor. A 100% increase of oil production has been gained in the subject well.

This is an example showing the value of using multiphase flow meters for well production optimization.
