PHASE XIII and XIV: DELHI OILFIELD

The Delhi field is located in northeastern Louisiana. RCP’s goal in the Delhi field’s continuous CO2 flood is to couple 4D multi-component seismic data with fine scale integration of multiple disciplines in order to accurately model CO2 flow paths, maximize recovery, and to actively monitor the reservoir during the flood. The significance of RCP’s involvement with the Delhi field flood is  active monitoring, to use the data obtained to analog potential other field candidates for future CO2 floods, and to better evolve 4D multi-component seismic technologies and methods. This will be accomplished by incorporating how the multi-component methodology handles some of the unique characteristics of the Delhi field such as its shallow depth, relatively high temperature, complex stratigraphy, very high permeability, and the continuous CO2 flooding of this field instead of the more common water alternating gas (WAG).

 PHASE XII: POSTLE OILFIELD

The phase XII began in late 2007 on Postle field, OK. It is a study to develop high resolution dynamic reservoir characterization (DRC) of flow units and their connectivity within a valley fill environment in Postle Field, Texas County, Oklahoma. The purpose is to conduct dynamic reservoir characterization of the field, a Morrow reservoir under CO2 flood, to enhance reservoir management options through proactive recognition of aerial and vertical flood conformance needs.

 

"We have to use technology to understand and produce our reservoirs effectively - in doing so, we can extend the life of our resources, improve our economic base and manage our resources in an environmentally responsible way"

                                                 -Tom Davis (RCP Director)

About RCP

The Colorado School of Mines Reservoir Characterization Project (RCP) is an independently sponsored research consortium whose mission is to develop and apply 4-D, multi-component seismology and associated technologies to effectively model complex reservoirs.
We have established a leading-edge interdisciplinary research and teaching program which fosters industry and university interaction and provides cost effective, collaborative research. The research benefits consortium members, and trains and graduates students for employment in the oil and gas industry. [Read more ...]

Over the past 15 years, RCP has conducted CO2 flood monitoring in the Permian, Williston, Anadarko, and Northeast Louisiana Salt basins. “After primary extraction and waterflooding, 70-75 percent of the original oil in place still remains in most fields,” Davis states. “Recovering another 15-20 percent by monitoring CO2 can add a lot of oil."
