Fluid Flow Rate

Fluid Flow Rate

Fluid Flow Rate

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

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.


RE: Fluid Flow Rate

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.
