This paper describes the use of flow controllers ahead of orifice meters on well locations and master stations. The controller has taken a typical production chart that was very difficult to read and made it much more accurate to integrate.

Further, the application of flow controllers at the separator as a "throttling choke" has shown numerous benefits. The elimination of choke freeze-off and improved fluid flow on combination gas/oil wells has been very successful.
