Safire 2.0 Flow Meter

GE introduces the Safire topside multiphase flow meter – capable of accurately measuring oil flow and water cut while in the presence of up to 40% gas volume fraction (GVF) for oil well production. Developed in partnership with Chevron and Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), the compact and economical design of the Safire meter combines patent and technology from GE and LANL to measure total liquid flow, oil flow, and water cut. In recognition of this accomplishment, R&D Magazine recently recognized Safire as a 2014 R&D 100 winner, a prestigious award recognizing the top 100 technologies introduced into the marketplace over the past year.

Features and Benefits


  • Compact and cost-effective flow measurement
  • Real time measurement of:
    – Total liquid and oil volumetric flow
    – Water cut
  • Combines multiple technologies for complementary measurement redundancy and accuracy
  • Available in 2 and 3-inch versions (others available upon request)


Continuous monitoring via real time flow readings helps operators to make better decisions, enabling:

  • Oil production and recovery optimization
  • Cost and complexity reduction of traditional gauging facilities
  • The ability to uncover well to well interactions
