Impact of inaccurate water-in-oil measurement

Water-in-oil content is an important parameter for both the upstream and downstream sectors of the oil and gas industry.

Water-in-oil content is an important parameter for both the upstream and downstream sectors of the oil and gas industry. Water is co-produced during oil and gas production as a byproduct, and as oilfields mature, water production often increases as a result of water injection for reservoir pressure maintenance. The increasing presence of water in production fluids can lead to process capacity issues, which affect oil/gas/water multi-phase separation and, consequently, the quality of oil and gas for export. The presence of water in an export crude oil and/or gas can not only impact the sales value, but also lead to operational issues such as pipeline corrosion or hydrate formation, as well as
