'200''Sand Steamflood Demonstration Project. Eighth annual report, June 1983-June 1984

Other (Open)

"The ""200"" Sand Steamflood Demonstration Project, a jointly funded venture between Santa Fe Energy Company - Western Division (SFE) and the United States Department of Energy (DOE), is testing an enhanced steamflooding technique in the Midway-Sunset Field. Kern County. California (Figures 1). The project was initiated in July, 1975. by Santa Fe Energy Company - Western Division SFE) and was followed by the DOE Cost - Sharing Contract which commenced on June 16, 1976 and was scheduled to end in June, 1983. The contract has since been extended until June, 1985. Steamflooding generally has been conducted in Midway-Sunset Field reservoirs which have responded favorably to cyclic steam stimulation in order to increase recovery and accelerate cyclic production. Numerous heavy oil pools in this field as well as other fields have not been adequately developed because of poor cyclic steam performance. The Demonstration Project was initiated in the ""200"" Sand Pool to demonstrate the operational, recovery, and economic aspects of steamflooding a typical heavy oil reservoir which has unfavorable response to cyclic stimulation. This pool, designated the ""200"" Sand, contains approximately 50 million barrels of oil-in-place in a structure that lies between 400 and 700 feet in depth. The reservoir produced very little primary oil production and responded poorly to cyclic steam stimulation."
