Multiphase Flow Metering Solutions Address Real World Challenges

ARC investigated the global market for multiphase flow metering (MPFM) and virtual flow metering (VFM) solutions across onshore, offshore, and subsea market segments.  The report provides quantitative analysis of both radioactive and non-radioactive-based multiphase flow metering and virtual flow metering technologies as well as separate consuming applications analysis for MPFM and VFM solutions.

ARC determined that the onshore segment comprised the largest majority of shipments, due in large part to the larger number of wells and decline in the subsea segment because of lower oil prices. The offshore segment comprised the second largest project location and is forecast for slower growth as operators continue to strive for the subsea factory of the future. The subsea segment is expected to recover as oil prices recover, delayed projects are restarted, and costs continue to drop.           

Multiphase flow metering and virtual flow metering suppliers are developing innovative measurement modalities and modeling technologies to overcome the challenges encountered in real-time multiphase flow measurements, often under extremely challenging environmental conditions.  Variations in formations and environmental conditions make “one size fits all” MPFM or VFM solutions impossible. 

The market for multiphase flow metering and virtual flow metering has been slow to evolve over the last 25 years, but due to continued advancement in sensing technologies and advanced modeling techniques empowered by machine learning, ARC believes that operators will now employ MPFM and VFM solutions on an ever growing number of wells since the operational and financial benefits are real.
