McCrometer V-Cone Assists Oil Recovery Systems

Latest News

McCrometer’s V-Cone Flow Meter features a space saving design that reduces both installation and operational costs while improving oil production efficiency.

Water-Alternating-Gas (WAG) Injection is an enhanced oil recovery technique that helps recover oil in a mature reservoir by alternately injecting carbon dioxide (CO2) gas with water. The CO2 gas helps mobilize the remaining oil, while injecting water displaces the remaining oil and gas.

In a typical WAG system, the V-Cone Flow Meter is installed as a master meter at the CO2 source with stainless steel piping split run to as many as 16 injection wells.

The V-Cone Flow Meter is available in line sizes from 0.5 to greater than 120 inches in materials and with flanges compatible with any application. It operates over a wide flow range of 10:1, is accurate to +/- 0.5% offers repeatability to +/- 0.1%.

Features standard beta ratios of 0.45 to 0.85 with custom betas available, it is constructed with Duplex 2205, 304 or 316 stainless steel, Hastelloy C-276, 254, SMO and carbon steels; with alternate materials and testing available on request.
