In oil & gas production, lost and unaccounted for (LUAF) production is: …the difference of the physical inputs and the physical outputs of the pipeline system… A “LOSS” occurs whenever the physical inputs are greater than outputs of the pipeline system. Flow measurement is a critical component in measuring for losses and for accurate custody […]

In oil and gas production well pads and offshore platforms, separators perform the work of breaking out the oil, gas and water into separate component streams. Test separators have historically taken flows from individual wells, known as well tests, to determine the percentages of these components on a periodic basis. These components are then returned […]

Successfully and economically getting oil and gas from the reservoir to the point of sale is known as flow assurance. Wikipedia defines it as: …extremely diverse, encompassing many discrete and specialized subjects and bridging across the full gamut of engineering disciplines. Besides network modeling and transient multiphase simulation, flow assurance involves effectively handling many solid […]

Author: Laura Schafer Take a moment and ask yourself: How much does my company spend every year on chemicals? For most, chemical injection is a sunk cost of production–it’s a cost that’s hard to tackle because few of us are chemists. Both the dosage of chemical and the amount spent on chemical is difficult to […]
