Fluid Flow Rate Fluid Flow Rate salmon2 (Materials) (OP) 12 Mar 14 23:00 Sompe production profile I have seen, say: oil flow rate: 100,000 bopd water flow rate: 50,000 bopd Total fluid flow rate: 140,000 bopd Why the total fluid flow rate is less than the sum of oil and water? Water injection is excluded here. Thanks. RE: Fluid Flow Rate MikeClay (Chemical) 13 Mar 14 13:02 I have seen this described as: oil flow rate: 100,000 bopd MAX water flow rate: 50,000 bopd MAX Total fluid flow rate: 140,000 bopd As the water cut increases, oil production tends to decrease. However, at no time would the combined flow exceed 140,000 bpd. --Mike-- RE: Fluid Flow Rate MortenA (Petroleum) 20 Mar 14 07:53 The explantion given by Mike is most likely true - on the other hand: Why dont you just aproach those who wrote the design basis and ask? Are you supposed to guess everything? On occation everybody makes mistakes - but when you guess that frequency will increase.
