The flow parameters of a newly developed ratio of water to oil detection method needed to be understood to determine measurement efficacy.
Using sophisticated Computational Fluid Dynamics modeling software we determined our client's proprietary sensor would accurately measure the ratio of water to oil in production pipe for avery wide flow regimen. We then developed a tool that integrated the sensor into the tool for the downhole environment for “water cut” measurement. Finally, we built a complete flow loop simulator in two weeks, and then ran tests at Tulsa University to validate the modeling.
Initial study completed in 30 days. Project completed in 6 months.
