  • 'This quarterly report presents an overview of Bakken Production Optimization Program (BPOP) activities from October through December 2018. BPOP activities in support of the rich gas EOR pilot were largely focused on field-based activities at the Leon–Gohrick drill spacing unit (DSU) in the Stomping ...'

  • 'This presentation summarizes results of research determining the ability of rich gas mixtures of methane, ethane, and/or propane to mobilize oil in Bakken reservoirs. This research consisted of three components: minimum miscibility pressure (MMP) studies, miscible behavior studies, and rock extracti...'

  • 'This brief presents a subset of research and subsequent findings from the larger surface facility vapor pressure modeling effort under BPOP. It specifically focuses on the modeling of two members’ surface facilities and the effects of cold weather on crude oil vapor pressure. While low ambient tempe...'
