Success in the Oil Field

TFX Ultra Transit Time Ultrasonic Flow Meter
In May 2018, one of our distributors came to Badger Meter with a chance to compete against ABB for a mag meter on a disposal water off the wellhead. They did not have a way to measure the difference between the well and the water disposal centers. The ability to measure this would allow them to verify their true costs. The application needed a meter with both Modbus and Class 1 Div 1 certifications. One of the challenges in this application was that each wellhead had a potential of various line sizes. I suggested a TFX Ultra Meter. This type of ultrasonic clamp-on meter provides a flexible solution for the various line sizes with the accuracy and features needed.

Our customer bought one ABB meter and one Dynasonic’s TFX Ultra Meter to test and compare. They liked our meter’s performance but realized one meter was too small of a sample size to change technologies for their application. Our customer then purchased ten more units and put them on their pads in West Virginia. They found the same results as the initial test which led to a discussion of standardizing on this technology for all their oil wells. Since the completed tests, they have purchased over 80 units.

Badger Meter expects that this application is one that can and will be duplicated easily throughout the world. The Dynasonics technology is one of the fastest growing measuring technologies because of our Performance, Price and Ease of Installation!

Oil Field Water Operations Optimized by Flow Meters
Whitepaper
The energy industry is under constant pressure in all production environments. In the face of rising costs and increased operating demands, exploration and production (E&P) companies are looking to maximize production while ensuring safe operations and avoiding environmental impact. During the exploration and drilling stages at oil and gas fields, accurate and dependable flow metering equipment is essential for optimized production. Produced water applications, in particular, challenge oil field operators. The costs associated with these processes can adversely affect the economics of the producing wells, thereby discouraging further development and leaving substantial reserves unrecoverable.

This whitepaper describes how instrumentation manufacturers have responded to the needs of the upstream sector by offering proven metering techniques to meet demanding flow measurement requirements.

Product Announcements 

New: Blancett® Top Load Turbine Flow Meter: Introduced at TPS 2018 blancett-toploadturbine-PR.jpg
Badger Meter is proud to announce the introduction of the Blancett Top Load Turbine Flow Meter at the Turbomachinery & Pump Symposium in Houston, Texas. Designed to withstand the demands of the most rigorous flow measurement applications, this meter was originally intended for the secondary oil recovery market and provides an ideal solution for liquid flow measurement on or off the oil field. The Blancett Top Load Turbine Flow Meter can be paired with a Blancett B2900 flow monitor, which provides advanced communication capabilities over an RS485 bus using Modbus remote terminal unit (RTU) and control outputs. This allows operators to connect meters to a network for process automation and/or remote flow monitoring. The Modbus RTU connection can be configured with user-selected baud rates.

The Blancett Top Load Turbine Flow Meter is available in one- and two-inch nominal pipe sizes with an accuracy rating of ±1 percent of reading and a repeatability of 0.1 percent of reading. Ideal flow ranges vary between 5...225 gallons per minute (GPM)/18.9…851.72 liters per minute (LPM), depending on line size. The meter comes calibrated and traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standards. The Blancett Top Load Turbine Flow Meter is in stock and ready to ship.
