Our trailer mounted sampling system is used in the validation of well test systems. Accurate results are achieved using isokinetic and positive displacement, in conjunction with a coriolis mass flow meter communicating with a PLC, and displayed on an operator interface. To ensure that well test system validation is definitive, samples are taken proportional to flow and delivered into a certified by weight 500ml beaker. The complete sample is spun in a centrifuge using 100ml certified by weight centrifuge tubes. Measurement range is 0-20%, 0-50%, or 0-100% and is certified to plus or minus 1% of cut accuracy.

Multi Phase Metering Systems – MFMS
SABA Instruments Validation Services for MFMs
Wells with multi phase metering systems, or MFMs, require a portable validation system for determining well accuracy. SABA Instruments’ uses the patented Accuflow MFM system, which incorporates both a vertical and horizontal pipe separator, to validate your Multi Phase Metering System onsite.
The Accuflow MFM system actually separates the liquid and gas phases using the vertical and horizontal separators, allowing SABA Instruments to use the most accurate technology for measurement of both the gas and liquid phases.
Liquid Phase Measurement for MFMs
The liquid phase is measured using a Coriolis mass flow meter. This method measures the density of the fluid and converts it to a volumetric flow. When the base water and oil density of your well, along with other factors such as fluid temperature are determined, your well’s water cut is accurately calculated using a Net Oil Computer or Programmable Logic Controller (PLC).
MFM Gas Phase Measurement
SABA Instruments measures the gas phase of multi phase metering systems using an ultrasonic flow meter, which allows us to give you extremely accurate turndown ratios of 80:1 compared to differential pressure measurement’s 10:1 or vortex shedding meter’s 20:1. MFM validation is based in part on the ultrasonic meter’s ability to use the transit time of the gas in the pipe and the pipe ID (inside diameter) to calculate the volume and convert it to the American Gas Association (AGA) standard.
When validating your multi phase metering well system, it is important to use a third party to assure accuracy. SABA Instruments’ use of Coriolis and ultrasonic metering methods, and online diagnostics to monitor the flow streams ensures that any upsets to the process will be detected and reported.
Ensure that your Multi phase metering well system is validated by skilled technicians.
