I (NPR-1) at the Maximum Efficient Rate (MER) as authorized by Public lawthe Naval Petroleum Reserves Production Act of (Act). The document also provides a similar analysis of alternatives to the proposed action, which also involve continued operations, but under lower development scenarios and lower rates of production.

Standard Handbook of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering, Third Edition, provides you with the best, state-of-the-art coverage for every aspect of petroleum and natural gas engineering.

With thousands of illustrations and 1, information-packed pages, this handbook is. "Maximum efficient rate" (MER) is defined in the act [Section (e)(l)] as "the maximum rate of production of crude oil or natural gas, or both, which may be sustained without loss of ultimate recovery of crude oil or natural gas, or both, under sound engineering and economic principles.".

If the oil or gas is extracted at a greater rate than the reservoir's Maximum Petroleum production at maximum efficient rate book Rate, the natural pressure of the reservoir will decrease, which results in less oil that is ultimately recoverable. The Maximum Efficiency Rate is also known as the The Maximum Efficient Rate.

The Definitive Guide to Petroleum Production Systems–Now Fully Updated With the Industry’s Most Valuable New Techniques. Petroleum Production Systems, Second Edition, is the comprehensive source for clear and fundamental methods for about modern petroleum production engineering practice.

Written by four leading experts, it thoroughly introduces modern principles of petroleum production. The word is difficult to define, but as it applies to petroleum production, efficiency is a measure of accomplishment of a desired result is maximum recovery of the petroleum present in any pool consistent with reasonable or decreased cost of production-which means, generally, the elimination of waste in petroleum production.

Maximum efficient rate (MER): Maximum efficient rate (MER) means the maximum sustainable daily oil or gas withdrawal rate from a reservoir that will permit economic development and depletion of that reservoir without detriment to ultimate recovery.

Source: Oil and Gas and Sulphur Operations in the Outer Continental Shelf, 30 CFR (). The above techniques combining new technologies, traditional reservoir and production strategies led to the successful development of the Umusadege Field, increasing daily oil production from 2, bbls/day from the first well re-entry to approximat bbls/day over a 7-year period.

dimensionless oil-production rate during Time Period 3; p R2, reservoir pressure at Time 2; and (i a1) max, maximum air-injection rate during Time Period 1. Except for Cases 4 and 5, subscript D for dimensionless‘ usually should appear last in subscript order.

Abstract. Rim oil reservoirs are often associated with either large water aquifer or gas cap or both. These conditions often present unique challenges in the economic viability of these properties due to the high coning tendency during : I.A.

Ike, O. Mbee. The Efficient Use of Energy, Second Edition is a compendium of papers discussing the efficiency with which energy is used in industry.

The collection covers relevant topics in energy handling and describes the more important features of plant and equipment. The book is organized into six parts. Part I presents the various methods of heat. Maximum Efficient Rate (MER) means the maximum sustainable daily oil or gas withdrawal rate from a reservoir which will permit economic development and depletion of that reservoir without detriment to ultimate recovery.

The MER is the maximum rate at which oil or gas can be produced without damaging the reservoirs natural energy. Petroleum production at maximum efficient rate, Naval Petroleum Reserve No. 1 (Elk Hills), Kern County, California. Draft Supplement to the Final Environmental Impact Statement.

EFFICIENCY OF ENERGY CONVERSION 57 Illustration An electric motor consumes watts (W) of electricity to obtain 90 watts of mechanical power. Determine its efficiency (E).

Solution. Because power is the rate of energy utilization, efficiency can also be expressed as a power ratio.
