Vx Omni：Subsea multiphase flowmeter
When wellheads or trees and production control equipment are located on the seabed, multiphase flow tests are more challenging. Surface measurements of production from subsea wells require the installation of costly subsea test lines, and platform-based facilities with topside test separators do not often have capacity for tying in subsea wells.
The Vx Omni* subsea multiphase flowmeter solves these challenges. This reduced-footprint, highly accurate multiphase flowmeter takes the application of flowmeter technology to 20,000 psi while expanding on capital efficiency, expediting lead times, and achieving unparalleled reliability.
Leveraging the accuracy and precision of Vx* multiphase well testing technology, the flowmeter addresses the need for real-time commingled process stream measurement at the well or manifold for use in well testing, production monitoring, and fiscal allocation.
Reduced lead time
The number of parts in the Vx Omni flowmeter has been reduced by approximately 66%, compared with previous-generation technologies. More than 90% of these components, including the most advanced instrumentation, are standardized for pressure rating, process fluids compatibility, temperatures, flow rates, and water depth.
The Vx Omni flowmeter offers new possibilities for obtaining data about gas, oil, and water flow from subsea development wells, including those in remote locations. The flowmeter can provide substantial cost savings through downscaling or eliminating surface well testing facilities and subsea test lines. Design simplification equates to fewer parts and less complexity, requiring the use of less material and fewer personnel hours.
The Vx Omni flowmeter (side view at left, top view at right) takes subsea flowmeter application to 20,000 psi and features a reduced-footprint, simplified design.
Redundancy, retrievable electronics, and condition monitoring are built into the Vx Omni flowmeter design, resulting in unparalleled dependability and availability. Reliability projection indicates that the flowmeter’s mean time between failure is 216 years.
Unparalleled metrological performance
The Vx Omni flowmeter is the only subsea multiphase flowmeter in the industry that measures in high frequency at a single point in the venturi throat, thereby avoiding cross correlation of measurements from multiple locations throughout the system. This technique ensures accurate and repeatable flow rate measurements in any multiphase flow regime and in production fluids ranging from heavy oil to wet gas.

For downward flow, gas flow rate uncertainties should be increased by 1%, and liquid flow rate uncertainties should be increased by 2%. Throat pressures greater than 20-bar absolute pressure. Differential pressure greater than 100 mbar. Repeatability and reproducibility of Vx technology is typically better than 1% for most measurements.
† 52-mm venturi size = 1.8 m3/h; 65-mm venturi size = 1.9 m3/h; 88-mm venturi size = 2.3 m3/h. In the GVF range of 90% to 98%, the largest of the absolute and relative uncertainties is applicable.
‡ For throat pressures greater than 35-bar absolute pressure.
§ For throat pressures greater than 25-bar absolute pressure.
†† At low GVF, the uncertainty is limited by an absolute value of 2 m3/h at line conditions.
