Once wet crude oil is extracted from wells, it gets processed at Gas and Oil Separation Plants (GOSPs) to separate the crude oil from the associated water and gas. The separated water in the GOSPs is injected back into the reservoir by injection pumps. To monitor recycling in real-time, and as part of its efforts to optimize energy consumption, Saudi Aramco has developed a new innovative real-time water injection system management to holistically monitor the daily and weekly water injection systems at one of the major oil fields the company operates.
