Design of down-Hole Oil-Water Separation and Reinjection in the same Well System with Surface Driving Single Screw Pump
Down-hole oil-water separation and reinjection in the same well system can reduce the cost of lifting the water and the ground pollution due to the treatment of production water, which can bring good economic and environmental benefits. By combining down-hole oil-water separation technology with surface driving single screw pump oil production technology, the author designed an innovative system of down-hole oil-water separation and reinjection in the same well. In this paper, the general structure, working principle and structure characteristics of the system are introduced. The structure composition and the connection method of each part are described, and the calculation method of basic parameters of the single screw pump in the system is given.
