STAVANGER, Norway -- Roxar ASA is using ONS to launch two new products designed to measure the flow rates of fluids or gas in subsea production and injection wells – the Roxar subsea Singlephase meter and the Roxar subsea Singlephase sensor.

The Singlephase meter (subsea SPM) is a breakthrough in subsea flow measurement, according to Roxar. Combined with the company's DualQ downhole pressure measurement technology, the subsea SPM measures both absolute and differential pressures across a venturi, eliminating the problems associated with traditional DP cell measurement, the company says.

The Singlephase sensor (subsea SPS) was developed in response to operator requests for an effective and low-cost alternative to venturi meters, Roxar says. Based on the company's Force technology, the subsea SPS measures the deflection of an intrusive probe caused by the flowing media. The measurement output from the subsea SPS is intended to enhance or replace traditional calculations based on choke settings, according to Roxar.
