Production

Production Production terms are related to the period after successful exploration and development during which hydrocarbons are drained from an oil or gas field. Production encompasses a broad spectrum of equipment and technologies, many of which overlap other parts of the E&P industry. Terms in this discipline range from accumulator to various types of valves (including ball, gate and globe) and parts of valves such as the yoke. All definitions have been reviewed by experts in this field.
