Executives, engineers and oil and gas leaders attending the FPSO Congress Brazil are invited to McCrometer’s presentation to learn the latest developments in McCrometer’sV-Cone flow measurement solutions. The presentation will be held on March 20, 11:30 am, and will include McCrometer’s latest research in offshore flow measurement. Click here for information about registering to attend the event.
As the world’s energy needs expand, more challenging oil and gas reserves are being tapped. By 2020, Brazil is expected to be the world’s third-largest oil producer presenting a need for flexible and economical solutions. Floating Production, Storage, and Offloading (FPSO) vessels have become increasingly popular due to their flexibility and long-term economic viability.
McCrometer’s advanced self-conditioning V-Cone Flow Meter is an ideal solution for the space and weight constraints borne by all oil and gas production and treatment systems aboard FPSO vessels. The highly reliable V-Cone Flow Meter offers significant installed and operational cost savings for FPSO vessels with complex or crowded equipment layouts, where options for upstream and downstream piping are limited.
The V-Cone Flow Meter offers proven differential pressure (dP) flow measurement technology with built-in flow conditioning reducing upstream/downstream straight pipe run requirements by up to 70% or more. This significant reduction in pipe requirements adds up to cost savings in both materials and installation labor while at the same time reducing overall vessel weight and saving valuable deck space. Using less pipe and thereby reducing weight also simplifies vessel balancing, making it easier to find the optimal location for meter installation.
