IOR in Wyoming with sparse data

The Enhanced Oil Recovery Institute assesses the potential for improved oil recovery in the Muddy Formation at Rozet and Windmill Fields

Reservoir mapping of the Muddy Formation at Rozet Field and subsequent modeling of the waterflood using StreamSim software indicate that additional recoverable reserves can be realized through improved waterflood design. Additionally, a study of the Muddy reservoir at nearby Windmill Field, which is still on primary production, serves as a good comparison to what might be accomplished there with the introduction of a secondary recovery program.

CO2 Enhanced Oil Recovery in Wyoming

EORI identifies CO2 enhanced oil recovery potential for Wyoming CO2 sources, prospective amenable oil and gas fields and favorable pipeline capacity.

Wyoming has world-class fields that have proven to be excellent targets for CO2 enhanced oil recovery (CO2 EOR) and have potential to recover significant future oil reserves from Wyoming reservoirs.  CO2 EOR has been used in Wyoming since 1986 and there are nine commercial-scale floods that are currently active in the State. 

EORI publishes Viper Drill Technical Evaluation

The results of EORI’s sponsored test of Viper Drill’s ultrashort radius (USR) drilling technology could be a sound investment for Wyoming operators.

Ultrashort radius drilling technology was successfully tested in two wells (an injector and a producer) at Thompson Creek Field in northeastern Wyoming that were experiencing problems due to near-wellbore formation damage.  Both wells exhibited marked improvement in performance after the drilling of four short (<30’ long) USR laterals from each borehole, indicating that this method should be considered in other wells throughout the state that are experiencing similar problems.

Characterization and Simulation of Reservoirs

Reservoir characterization and predictive modeling has provided options for enhancing production in a recently discovered trend in the Muddy Formation near Hirsch Field, in northeastern Campbell County, Wyoming.

This report outlines the procedures followed to develop a detailed 3-D geologic model of the Muddy Formation in the Hirsch area and provides the results of simulations run on 73 different scenarios for developing the reservoir. This study can serve as a template for operators interested in exploring possible ways to improve production in their own fields.
