Osage Oil Field Single-Well Chemical Tracer Test Shows Promise
 103.07 KB

The first-ever collaborative field demonstration project conducted by Osage Partners LLC, TIORCO, Chemical Tracers Inc., and the Enhanced Oil Recovery Institute (EORI) was completed in the Bradley Unit of the Osage oil field in October. The purpose of this project was to collect an in situ measurement of residual oil saturation from the reservoir. The single-well chemical tracer test also evaluated the effectiveness of an alkali-surfactant-polymer (ASP) to mobilize stranded oil.

Simulation evaluation of gravity stable CO2 flooding in the Muddy reservoir at Grieve Field, Wyoming
 3.19 MB

Grieve oil field was discovered in August 1954. The field is located in southeastern Wind River Basin, central Wyoming, and is currently operated by Elk Petroleum Inc. (Elk Petroleum), Figure 1. The producing oil reservoir is a stratigraphic/structural trap at a depth of 6,900 ft in the Lower Cretaceous, valley-fill and channelized, Muddy sandstone. The average structural dip in the Grieve area is about 15 degrees to the northeast.

Tensleep formation fracture study compendium
 8.65 MB

This Tensleep Formation Fracture Study compendium contains the field studies, core analyses and literature reviews conducted over the 2007-2010 period in an effort to understand the characteristics and distributions of fractures and their influence on fluid flow within Tensleep Formation reservoirs. The studies reported here are the results of a large-scale project on fractures in the Tensleep Formation in Wyoming initiated by the Enhanced Oil Recovery Institute (EORI) at the University of Wyoming. The supporting data are also available through EORI and can be utilized in a variety of modeling software.
