What is Water Cut?

The water cut is the percentage of water in crude oil. The amount of water in crude oil can be measured by using a centrifuge or a lab instrument. This type of measurement uses a spot sample which will determine the water content in a crude oil pipeline at different time intervals.

What is a Water Cut Meter?

Since the water content in crude oil can vary considerably over a time period, an inline instrument called a “water cut meter” can be installed in the pipeline to continually monitor the amount of water present in real time 24 hours a day. Water cut meters are typically used in the petroleum industry to measure the water cut of oil flowing from a well, produced oil from a separator, and crude oil transfer in pipelines, loading tankers and custody transfer metering systems .
