  • Deploy your subsea instrumentation with confidence. FIRST-FLOWTM Delivery Assurance leverages the expertise and knowledge of our engineers, the EPC, and your team to ensure 100% functionality of subsea equipment at start-up.

    Achieving first oil and first-flow can be challenging. FIRST-FLOW Delivery Assurance speeds and simplifies the process. From pre-commissioning that verifies all instruments are fully functional and calibrated to system integration, testing and commissioning, FIRST-FLOW Delivery Assurance ensures trouble free start-up, with a focus on dynamic performance and redundancy.

    Following each transport leg and storage period, a visual inspection of the instrument takes place that includes a check on shock indicators, followed by verification of the meter’s functionality. Furthermore, welding of the instrumentation and the insulation process is supervised by Emerson personnel. A full instrument functionality test is completed both prior to and after the instrument is welded into the system.

    With FIRST-FLOW Delivery Assurance, you:

    • Achieve maximum value from your investment
    • Reduce risk of start-up delay
    • Increase reliability and operational efficiency
    • More quickly achieve first-flow, production and revenue
  • Identify debris and blockages system-wide before measurement is impacted with dynamic flow based diagnostics
  • Minimize flow measurement uncertainty by determining the root cause of the diagnostic parameter indication
  • Directly compare measured and calculated SOS to avoid temperature or gas composition issues
  • Minimize maintenance with condition based diagnostics that ensure inspections are scheduled only as required
  • Expand actionable data with optional Continuous Flow Analysis (CFA) feature that provides more in-depth diagnostics
  • Avoid process upsets with the optional Baseline Viewer that delivers predictive alerts based on deviations from baseline
  • Expedite meter configuration and startup
