Paper presented at the SPE Kuwait Oil & Gas Show and Conference, October 13–16, 2019
Paper Number: SPE-198143-MS
... Abstract Historically, it has been a challenge to analyze and predict water cut or water production. While predicting water production may seem less relevant as compared to oil production, produced water poses many challenges. The difficulty rises when surface facilities cannot handle the water...
