The water-cut meter is typically used downstream from a two-phase test separator in the liquid leg. The meter can be combined with a total liquid flowmeter and NOC for individual oil and water flow rates.
Individual Well Monitoring
The Red Eye 2G water-cut meter can be used to monitor individual wells and provide continuous real-time, water-cut data. When streams contain free gas (up to 20% gas void fraction) the meter provides unsurpassed performance in accurate determination of oil and water rates.
Group Production at Centralized Facilities
The water-cut meter can be used to monitor group production lines as well as individual test lines. The compact insertion style design is very cost effective even for large line sizes.
Dewatering Monitoring Systems for Crude Oil Tanks
When a Red Eye 2G water-cut meter is installed on the discharge line from a tank, the operator can easily identify the rag layer (interface between the oil and water in the tank). The optical sensors of the meter sense very small amounts of oil in the rag layer as it passes through the pipe allowing the operator to shut off the flow from the tank.
