BAKKEN CO2 ENHANCED OIL RECOVERY (EOR)

May 2, 2016

Addressing challenges with EOR in the Bakken

  • Low primary recoveries from light tight oil (10 to 15% of OOIP at maximum)

  • Capital intensive enhanced oil recovery technologies

  • Formation is too tight for waterflood or even gas flood applications

  • CO2 emissions and sequestration
