water production

1. n. [Production Testing]
The volume of produced water associated with oil production. In waterdrive reservoirs, water production can be significantly higher than oil production from a field. Consequently, treatment and disposal of produced water, especially in remote locations, have an important impact on the feasibility of a project.
