Real-time Flow Measurements Drive the Multiphase and Virtual Flow Metering Solutions Market

New ARC Advisory Group research on the Multiphase Flow Metering (MPFM) and Virtual Flow Metering (VFM) market reveals that owner-operators and independents are increasingly relying on multiphase flow metering and virtual flow metering solutions for real-time measurements for production monitoring, field surveillance, and production optimization. Multiphase flow metering solutions are enabling end users to save on the cost and space of production and test separators while simultaneously obtaining more real-time flow measurements. This provides real-time visibility, greater operational agility, and flexibility to adapt to changing flow regimes characteristic of mature oil and gas wells.

"Virtual flow metering solutions are seen as a less expensive complement to multiphase flow metering solutions that ensure the validation of the MPFM and serve as a backup for an MPFM to ensure reliability and continuity in measurements. Virtual flow metering solutions are a useful tool for estimating real-time well flow rates, reducing the need for bulkier and often more expensive test separators, and will likely become viable replacements for multiphase flow metering solutions with advancements in AI and machine learning," according to Tim Shea, Senior Analyst and key author of ARC's Multiphase and Virtual Flow Metering Solutions Market Research.
