ocean-flo Single Phase Flow Meter

ocean-flo Single Phase Flow Meter

The ocean-flo™ SPFM is a single phase flow meter used in subsea applications to assist aging or depleting oil and gas wells.

ocean-flo is integrated within the subsea mainframe system within a tree, manifold or flow jumper. It is primarily used to boost the extraction rates of oil or gas where the reservoir pressure has depleted over time.

The injection of water directly into the subsea gas well creates the required pressure to enable further extraction, thus maximizing the output of the reservoir and optimizing the life of the field. The same effect is created by injecting gas into the oil production lines coming from the well, thus creating a pressurized "lift" effect.ocean-flo Single Phase Flowmeter

The class-leading subsea electronics interface along with the flexibility of the design offerings make the ocean-flo a winning formula with subsea installations.
