Definition - What does Flush Production mean?
Flush Production is the initial high yield of oil with a high pressure from a flowing well. It is one of the most lucrative ways to extract hydrocarbons. However, to make the task successful, the reservoir needs to be properly managed and accurately defined. To ensure safe Flush Production, it must undergo two rounds; during the first round it must go across the reservoir and then flow against gravity, from bottom to the surface. In the second round, it is facilitated by the use of man-made extracting devices such as a pump jack.
Petropedia explains Flush Production
Flush Production is one of the important concepts used by various industries for producing oil from the earth's surface. It is an ideal scenario for bringing the oil to the market. However, careful attention should be taken during the process in order to get profitable results. Thus, specially designed tools are available to complete the process successfully. For example, foam head, Auto-Pax stuffing box, and flush joint. Generally, solid rock, gravity and natural gas are the driving forces behind natural Flush Production systems. Once the Flush Production is over, primary recovery equipment is needed to enhance the lift of hydrocarbons.
