K-Spice Meter will improve the accuracy and reliability of the overall hydrocarbon accounting system. It is a complete dynamic virtual fow metering system where the oil and gas produced from each well will match the total production measured by a fscal metering system
The uniqueness is to perform online heat and mass balance calculation including component tracking both under steady-state and during transient periods for the plant. It is a supplement to advanced multiphase instruments and can also be an alternative.
K-Spice Meter is a model based virtual fow metering system performing data validation and reconciliation of all relevant sensors in the plant. The main components in the system include a high fdelity dynamic multiphase fow and process simulation model. This model is based on first principle modelling approach including a complete heat and material balance of the fuid. The model is synchronized in real time using control signals from the feld, e.g. when a valve is opened in the feld, the same valve will open in the
Features and Benefits
• Provides multi-phase flow calculation per well
• Back allocates flow deviation from fiscal metering topsides
• Calibration and monitoring of all feld measurements
• 4 available simulation modes; real time, planning, predictive and retrospective mode
• Detection of gas and water breakthrough in the wells
• Reliable subsea multiphase metering per well based on high fidelity flow assurance model
• Alternative to physical subsea meters which are typically very expensive and unreliable
• Back allocate flow deviations from topsides fiscal metering
• Installation and maintenance of such systems is much simpler than physical meters
