1 Chemical FloodingBridging the gap between chemical flooding and independent oil producers.
2 ObjectiveTo design efficient chemical flooding processes for KS leases/reservoirs.The designs are necessary for Independent Oil Operators to make an informed assessment for implementation of a pilot or demonstration project.
3 TeamStan McCool, Paul Willhite, Tony Walton Mark Ballard, Jyun Syung Tsau, Don GreenGrad. Stud.: Ahmed, Lin, SeniorPostdocs: Song (Dec), Rondon (Jan)
4 Tasks I. Identify and select 10 leases II. Design efficient chemical formulationsIII. Simulate field applications and evaluate economics for 2 leasesIV. Document results and transfer technology
5 Identify/Select Leases MethodsPublic data (KGS)Not successfulInterviews with operatorsTop 30 producersTop 10 is SE KS45% KS oil productionCriteriaSuccessful waterfood
