Oil Well steam


Recommended Posts

That's not the incoming water which is boiling, that's the water stored inside the well.

Try keeping enough NG pressure, & use 90°C crude oil from the well to cool the atmosphere.

Or try flooding a bit the well, that should keep it at 90°C and prevent boiling.

Without any screenshots or even explanation of your situation, we can only guess about your problem.

Formally, answer must be "Oil well release only natural gas, not steam" but this is obviously not the answer you are looking for.

So, my guess is, your oil well very hot and it boils water inside.

Oil well doesn't consume water while it waiting for pressure release. So, if you pipe set to 500 g/s this is good only as long as your oil well consume water (btw, well consume 1 kg/s).

Simplest solution is to keep oil well "cold". If you don't use already overheated water, oil will be produced at 90C, so just let oil well be submerged in it's own oil, and short temperature spike of natural gas will not heat up oil well and ton of oil above 100C

I think the main issue is that the oil well is doing it without being damaged.  There are other buildings that break when a phase change happens.  There is an already established cause and effect that isn't being done with the oil well. 

Usually though it is the pipes breaking and not the building itself then again most buildings seem to be perfect insulators for their contents.
