Water will be injected into the formations to support reservoir pressure and to move additional oil within the reservoir toward adjacent receiver wells (secondary recovery). The produced water will then be recycled and reinjected through existing surface facilities and injection pumps.
The North Borie Muddy Unit has only produced 1,500,000 barrels of oil out of the estimated 8,000,000 barrels of original oil in place (OOIP) within the Second and Third Muddy J formations. Primary recovery generally recovers approximately 10-20% of original oil in place, depending on reservoir characteristics, while secondary recovery (water flooding) can increase recovery to 30% of original oil in place.
The EOR program will utilize polymer gels and/or surfactants, which can increase oil recovery by an additional 10-30% by improving sweep efficiency in the reservoir.
The EOR process is expected to have long term benefits to the fields production profile. The Borie Field produces oil which is currently benefitting from higher WTI prices. The company will update the results of the secondary recovery once results are established.
