The primary objective of this research is to conduct advanced reservoir characterization
and modeling studies in the Antelope Shale reservoir. Characterization studies will be used
to determine the technical feasibility of implementing a CO2 enhanced oil recovery project
in the Antelope Shale in Buena Vista Hills Field. The Buena Vista Hills pilot CO2 project
will demonstrate the economic viability and widespread applicability of CO2 flooding in
fractured siliceous shale reservoirs of the San Joaquin Valley. The research consists of four
primary work processes: Reservoir Matrix and Fluid Characterization; Fracture
Characterization; Reservoir Modeling and Simulation; and CO2 Pilot Flood and Evaluation.
Work done in these areas is subdivided into two phases or budget periods. The first phase
of the project will focus on the application of a variety of advanced reservoir
characterization techniques to determine the production characteristics of the Antelope
Shale reservoir. Reservoir models based on the results of the characterization work will be
used to evaluate how the reservoir will respond to secondary recovery and EOR processes.
The second phase of the project will include the implementation and evaluation of an
advanced enhanced oil recovery (EOR) pilot in the United Anticline (West Dome) of the
Buena Vista Hills Field.
