We're trying to pump 700 BPD of heavy oil with a GVF of 95%. We want to calculate the power required for the pump. I know BHP=Q(GPM)*TDH(FT)*sp.gr/(3960*Eff(%)); my question is, do I use only the 700 bpd or the BPDe (BPD + GAS) of the mixture? Or do I just change the sp.gr. of the liquid to that of the mixture (gas + liquid).
Hope you can help me with this issue.
Thank you in advance!
