Red Eye® Multiphase Water-Cut Meter
Weatherford has redefined the water-cut meter market by addressing many of the difficulties in accurately measuring water cut in flowing lines. The revolutionary Red Eye 2G water cut meter was the first device to work with varying salinity levels, a wide-range of water-cut levels and entrained gas. It ignores changes in salinity, provides accurate measurements from 0 to 100% water-cut levels and can handle up to 20% gas volume fractions (GVF).
The Red Eye multiphase water-cut meter extends this unparalleled performance to a full range of GVF. Designed to work in full three-phase flow (oil, water and gas), the multiphase meter measures relative water and oil concentrations in streams with up to 99.5% GVF.
At GVF levels above 99.5% this meter can be used for water onset detection. Using strong water absorption wavelengths in the near infrared (NIR), the multiphase meter can clearly detect water at or below 0.25 BBL/MMSCF.
The meter also has the ability to differentiate methanol or similar alcohol based hydrate inhibitors. By measuring five key wavelengths in the NIR spectrum, the multiphase water-cut meter can distinguish four components (gas, water, methanol and condensate) in three phases (gas, liquid hydrocarbon and aqueous).
