Increasing Heavy Oil Reserves in the Wilmington Oil Field through Advanced Reservoir Characterization and Thermal Production Technologies

Description: The objective of this project is to increase the recoverable heavy oil reserves within sections of the Wilmington Oil Field, near Long Beach, California. This is realized through the testing and application of advanced reservoir characterization and thermal production technologies. It is hoped that the successful application of these technologies will result in their implementation throughout the Wilmington Field and through technology transfer, will be extended to increase the recoverable oil reserves in other slope and basin clastic (SBC) reservoirs. The existing steamflood in the Tar zone of Fault Block (FB) II-A has been relatively insufficient because of several producability problems which are common in SBC reservoir; inadequate characterization of the heterogeneous turbidite sands, high permeability thief zones, low gravity oil and non-uniform distribution of the remaining oil. This has resulted in poor sweep efficiency, high steam-oil ratios, and early breakthrough. Operational problems related to steam breakthrough, high reservoir pressure, and unconsolidated sands have caused premature well and downhole equipment failures. In aggregate, these reservoir and operational constraints have resulted in increased operating costs and decreased recoverable reserves.

Increasing Heavy Oil Reserves in the Wilmington Oil Field Through Advanced Reservoir Characterization and Thermal Production Technologies, Class III

Description: The objective of this project was to increase the recoverable heavy oil reserves within sections of the Wilmington Oil Field, near Long Beach, California through the testing and application of advanced reservoir characterization and thermal production technologies. It was hoped that the successful application of these technologies would result in their implementation throughout the Wilmington Field and, through technology transfer, will be extended to increase the recoverable oil reserves in other slope and basin clastic (SBC) reservoirs.

Antineutrino Interactions in the 14' H(2)-Neon BC

Description: We propose a 50-100,000 photo exploratory exposure of the 14{prime} BC filled with {approx}30% Neon, 70% H{sub 2}, to a broad band {bar {nu}} beam produced by whatever intensity ({approx}> 10{sup 12}) IP/pulse and energy ({approx}> 200 GeV) external proton beam is initially available. The Ne-H{sub 2} mixture permits {approx}10 x higher event rate than pure H{sub 2}; also direct detection of {gamma}, K{sub 2}{sup o}, n; better {mu}{sup {+-}}, e{sup {+-}} identification and the possibility of coherent production reactions from the nucleus as a whole as well as incoherent reactions from both neutrons and protons. The event rate vs. E{sub {bar {nu}}} and q{sup 2} will be measured to {approx}130 GeV permitting (in comparison with HBC experiments) estimate of the A dependence of {sigma}{sub T}, and (given crude flux estimates) tests of scaling and locality in d{sup 2}{sigma}/dE{sub {bar {nu}}}dq{sup 2} and {sigma}{sub T} as well as comparison of {sigma}{sub T} on n and p and of these with corresponding {nu} cross sections. Cross sections, particle momenta, invariant mass and angular correlation spectra will be measured for dominant channels permitting crude tests of {Delta}I = 1, {Delta}I = 1/2, {Delta}S = {Delta}Q, {Delta}S {ne} 2 rules. New particles and phenomena will be searched for.

Total Absorption Shower Counter Test

Description: We propose to conduct a short test to check the basic concepts used in the Total Absorption Shower Counter (TASC) being developed for the Alvarez cosmic-ray experiment (BCR-5) on the HEAO-B satellite. The objective is to ascertain whether the probability for an incoming proton of energy E {ge} 100 GeV to interact in the TASC and simulate the response due to an incoming e{sup {+-}} is smaller than 10{sup -4}. We will thereby obtain a preliminary estimate of whether the TASC should be able to distinguish incident e{sup {+-}} from incident protons to one part in 10{sup 4} over the BCR-5 momentum range from 5 to 10{sup 4} GeV/c.
