The Wyoming Business Report has released an article outlining how the federal government has expanded a tax credit to make the process an economically feasible option in Wyoming’s energy sector.
The EORI Bulletin, #1801/2018 “Potential for Future Water Flood Projects in Wyoming” by Stephen T. Whitaker, Senior Geologist, and Amy M. Freye, Consulting Geologist, published by the Enhanced Oil Recovery Institute in Casper, Wyoming, is now available online or in print version.
The objective is to test the effectiveness of scrapers, brushes or other mechanical tools on paraffin and scale removal from within wellbores. Pre- and post-workover production and fluid levels will be used to measure tool effectiveness. Project applicants may request up to $750/well from EORI for the purchase of data sets adhering to the requirements in Section 4. There is no specified individual project limit and the program may be expanded or extended beyond the current amount, based on availability of funds.
NEWY, comprised of leaders from several municipalities in NE Wyoming hold annual tours as fact-finding tours of sites in Wyoming's energy industry for the purpose of showing congressional delegates and their aides how the energy industry in this state works cooperatively with tourism and other industries in a symbiotic relationship beneficial to the region and the state.
