Q1 (30 marks). An oil and gas well is 12,000 ft deep. The 2000 ft bottom portion of the well is filled with oil (SG=0.75) and the top 10,000 ft is filled with methane (CH 4 , Mw=16). The temperature varies linearly with depth down the well and it is 100 o F at the top of the well and 200 o F at 10,000 ft down the well. The gas and the oil are static. The pressure at the top of the well is 1,000 psig. Neglect temperature variations in the oil and assume ideal behavior of the gas. Calculate (a) the pressure at the oil/methane interface. (b) the pressure at the bottom of the well.
Q2. (30 marks). 2000 lb

Unformatted text preview: m /s of water flows steadily from an elevated large tank through a constant diameter pipeline into a turbine that is 100% efficient. The shaft work of the turbine is 1000 hp. The pressure in the pipe at a point 10 ft below the turbine is 18 psia, and at a point 300 ft above the turbine is 30 psia. Calculate the friction loss in the pipe in hp assuming constant pipe diameter. Q3. (40 marks). The figure below shows a horizontal flow separator (i.e., z 1 = z 2 = z 3 ). Water ( w = 62.4 lb m /ft 3 ) at points and exits to the atmosphere. The volumetric flow rate and pressure at point are 18.87 ft 3 /s and 50 psig, respectively. The diameters of the pipes are shown in the figure. Calculate the forces (magnitude and direction) required to keep the flow separator in place. Neglect frictional losses in your analysis. 50 o 40 o 8-in 5-in 3-in...
