CCM Well Metrology SystemThe CCM skid is an upgrade of the traditional two-phase separator. It utilizes the standard industry methods for water cut and gas/liquid flow measurement. With the CCM, well testing can be performed quickly and accurately due to the amount of liquid volume and short amount of time required to establish equilibrium.

We perform calibration and testing in order to guarantee product's operational performance.

An integrated control system has been designed to simplify operation, improve performance and to achieve maximum system reliability.

No extra transmitters, PLCs, or PCs are required for MMS multiphase measurement seporator. It can be used as a stand-alone system, operating through the local interface, control, display, or remotely, through the digital interface via Modbus

ССМ advantages:

  • Reliability
  • High accuracy
  • Wide range of measurements
  • Low maintenance
  • Re-configuration capability
  • Separation process monitoring
  • Regional service support (more then 15 locations)

SATURN Well Testing & Metering System (MMS) is a cluster well measurement skid similar to AGZU Sputnik. SATURN is a patented solution and registered trade mark of Argosy. It is the most advanced system on today's market with the R-AT-MM control unit to provide liquid and petroleum gas measurements in accordance with new GOST R 8.615-2005. It's design allows for measurement of the average mass flow of crude oil, average volumetric flow of petroleum gas from one or more (cluster) oil wells.

SATURN utilizes R-AT-MM Coriolis flow meters ("private label" agreement with Micro Motion) for liquid and gas lines. In addition the liquid line is equipped with the Argosy's patented full cut water cut meter ВСН-АТ (0-100%).

Saturn MMS provides data output (mass and volume flow rate, temperature, pressure and density) on the operator’s LCD display. Also it enables to control the drive of multi-stream switch manifold to communicate with the remote terminal units (RTU). The system can also store data and generate customized reports.

Work safety and convenience

Saturn MMS includes the following life-supporting systems:

  • Heating System
  • Lighting System
  • Air-forced Ventilation System
  • Fire-Alarm System
  • Gas Analyzers
  • System of Audio and Light Alarm
  • Temperature Indicator
  • Security Alarm System (Watchdog System)

R-AT-MM Metering System for Liquid & GasR-AT-MM is the Argosy Technologies Ltd. new innovative development to provide an integrated flow measurement and quality monitoring solution for upgrading oil separator systems, known as multi well AGZU "Sputnik", in Russia and the CIS. The unique solution, patented and approved by Russia's GOST and Gosgortekhnadzor, is designed for automatic multiphase measurement and quality monitoring of hydrocarbon flow coming out right from the wellhead. The Argosy Technologies system, known as R-AT-MM measuring system, using Micro Motion® Coriolis meters, Argosy's full cut ВСН-АТ water cut analyzers etc. delivers a total solution including high accuracy data acquisition, accumulation, processing and communication as per modern industry requirements and standards.

Challenges facing customers in this upgrade process are identifying a solution that can be used in the rugged and diverse oil fields in the region that offer low maintenance and high reliability, yet are capable of providing accurate fiscal measurement of both the oil and the gas coming off of the AGZU "Sputnik" oil separator. Global and regional service capability is key to Argosy's continued success.

In order to meet the new Russian GOST R 8-615-2005 requirements and also be able to provide a low-cost upgrade solution for the older, existing AGZU Sputniks in the field and new AGZU Saturns (advanced patented Argosy equivalent of the Sputnik) for the new well sites, Argosy has undertaken substantial research and numerous field tests in the West Siberian region since 2003. Argosy engineers have found that its R-AT-MM system which is based on Micro Motion Coriolis mass meters, Argosy's water cut meters, and the key element R-AT-MM controller, best serves the needs of these customers. Designed and produced by Argosy Technologies in Russia, more than 1500 R-AT-MM upgrade systems have been installed and are successfully being operated by the major Russian oil and gas companies.

Pycnometric Density Meter Calibration Benches

The Benches can be used for flow density meters testing and calibration.

Laboratory Unit

Laboratory StationThe laboratory unit consists of four pycnometers (specific gravity bottles). Two of them are heavily utilized in the measurement process, while the remaining are used as control devices and can operate as primary devices at the moment. The other two working pycnometers are being tested. Due to its design features this bench is used continuously, without decommissioning for testing purposes.

The pycnometer’s body has thermal insulation and is protected from ambient environment. This feature secures high accuracy in measurement process.

Portable Pycnometric Unit PPU-Argosy

Portable PicnometerThere is no need to stop operation process. The portable unit can perform tests directly on-site without taking out the flow density meters from the pipeline.

Portable PicnometerField application allows better monitoring of its performance.

Hydraulic circuit of the unit is assembled in the temperature-controlled cabinet, which enhances reading accuracy and cuts down the man hours during tests.
