ABSTRACT
A relatively new technology (introduced in the 1990s) has been employed as a solution to manage produced water problem in the oil and gas industry. It is the downhole oil-water separator (DOWS), also known as DHOWS or dual injection and lifting systems (DIALS). This technology allows water to be separated downhole with simultaneous injection of water into a suitable injection zone while oil, gas, and traces of water are produced to the surface. This study aims to predict the operating condition of a DOWS unit installed in a well experiencing a high watercut to increase the success of the unit in operation. The well in study was Texaco Well Bilbrey 30 in New Mexico. PIPESIM, a Schlumberger Steady-state multiphase flow simulator, was used to build a model of the well and run Nodal system Analysis on it. The results obtained were an optimum flowrate of
3593.992STB/d and an optimum bottomhole flowing pressure of 3085.751psia. This is the operating condition at which the well will produce optimally with a DOWS unit installed and operating while assisted by an electric submersible pump.
