New multiphase fraction meter features carbon
This newly developed multiphase
fraction meter accurately determines water cut and gas void fraction across a wide range of flows.
It does so via sensors embedded
in a high-pressure corrosion-re-sistant composite pipe.
The carbon fiber construction
makes it possible to deploy completely non-intrusive microwave
sensor systems fully protected
from aggressive oil well fluids.
Thus the meters experience none
of the harsh fluids-induced degradation or calibration change — often cause for measurement
uncertainty, lost production, or associated recalibration, repair,
and cleaning costs.

Well integrity, performance evaluation listening
VIVID acoustic listening platform is launched to detect, investigate, and locate leaks in real-time, verify cement barrier
seals, and characterize downhole events.
ogy plus ultra-
high-sensitivity sensors are declared “to play key roles in casing
and completion evaluation, cement performance evaluation,
and turbulent flow analysis.”
VIVID comprises full-spectrum acoustic sensors. They ac-
curately measure the broadest frequency bandwidth and ampli-
tude of acoustic energy, and locate previously indiscernible low
energy leaks, reports the manufacturer. It provides the clearest
answers on downhole events, improves oil and gas performance,
and provides documentation of operator safety, compliance.

Cybersecurity for continuous ICS risk reduction
CyberX industrial cybersecurity platform delivers continuous
Industrial Control Systems threat monitoring and asset
It combines a deep embedded
understanding of industrial protocols, devices, and applications
with ICS-specific behavioral
anomaly detection, threat intelligence, risk analytics, and automated threat modeling.
The platform addresses all four
Gartner’s Adaptive Security Architecture (detect, respond,
predict, prevent) requirements
with a practical, appliance-based
system that can be deployed in less than an hour.
A free solution brief provides additional cybersecurity specifics
including its continuous and real-time approach along with
passive and nonintrusive, heterogeneous and vendor-agnostic,
plus integration with existing SOC workflows and security tools.

New PDC bit solves cuttings clogging, reduced
Patent-pending SplitBlade PDC
bits are introduced to improve
cuttings evacuation as much as
200% faster than conventional
The new bit’s ability to rapidly
and efficiently evacuate cuttings
is based on a combination of design and hydraulic performance.
Its rotated blade shoulder design
is such that primary blades separate past the cone to free more area for the junk slot and prevent
High-velocity, focused nozzles increase maximum hydraulic
dispersal rate while advanced bit hydraulics improve bit tool
face cleaning. Hydraulic flow sweeps the junk slot for reliable
