Ash Minnelusa Unit Conclusions

• Monitor, monitor, monitor. Make changes based upon reservoir response.
• Improved understanding of the problem improves process application and results
• Volumetric sweep (gels) should be applied before mobility control
• Implement gel processes early for maximum benefits
• Incremental oil expected to exceed 400,000 BBLS (18.4%%5 OOIP) for $0.88/BBL
• Field experience is critical with gel processes. Experience at Ash can be applied to other reservoirs

Recent studies have shown that methane leak rates from abandoned oil and gas (AOG) wells may constitute a significant portion of a state’s emissions inventory. These emissions were shown to vary by region which introduces large uncertainty in the US national emissions inventory. In Wyoming, there are currently around 1900 wells identified as “orphaned” which indicates that they are both abandoned and unplugged. In this study, ten orphaned coalbed methane wells were sampled to characterize AOG emission rates in the Powder River Basin in Wyoming. The mean methane emission rate measured at these wells was 645 mg CH4/hr with the majority of these wells emitting in the 100-1000 mg CH4/hr range.

Presentation at the 2014 Wyoming Oil and Gas Fair by William F. Demarest of Husch Blackwell. Topics include how radical changes in natural gas markets have disproportionately affected Wyoming production, trends in pricing, demand and production in key markets, pipelines and more.

Brian Jeffries presents for the Wyoming Pipeline Authority at the Wyoming Oil & Gas Fair (WOGF) in September 2014 in Jackson, Wyoming. Topics covered in the presentation include natural gas pricing, capacity, comparisons between natural gas and crude oil, building models for Wyoming energy, energy transportation options and more.

Brian Jeffries presents on the topic of "Update on Natural Gas, NGLs and Crude" at the 2015 Petroleum Association of Wyoming Annual Meeting in Casper, Wyoming. This presentation includes information including Wyoming natural gas, crude, propane, energy networks, pricing, and pricing forecasts.

When it comes to electrifying the oilfield, the industry narrows its focus onto monthly energy charges (energy, demand, and basic charges), somewhat disregarding the considerable capital expenditures necessary to build out and maintain electric infrastructure. Onsite generation may not be the optimal solution in every application, but at least in terms of cost in the current environment, generators appear to offer a competitive alternative.
