Agenda

Agenda

  • Safety Moment

  • Background

  • Projects

  • Other Experiences Gained

  • Lessons Learned

  • Questions


Safety moment h 2 s detection

Safety Moment - H2S Detection

  • What is the proper monitor placement?

    • Always place monitor at or near your face as to detect any H2S presence

    • Make sure sensor is not obstructed by clothing and facing outward

  • What happened?

    • Goldsmith Tract 2 Gas Leak

    • H2S Monitor Alarmed

  • Awareness:

    • Be aware of your surroundings

    • Always know the wind direction

    • Test the monitor each time you use it

Well Work Plan

  • History

    • 1934 – Discovered

    • 1963 – Start Water Flood

    • 1983 – Start CO2 Flood

  • Main Pay Zone / Residual Oil Zone

    • Re-developing the MPZ

    • Expanding CO2 into ROZ

    • Expansion will increase oil production from 6,000bpd to 13,000 bpd

  • Cost

    • Total Investment: $635 Million ($440 already funded)

Other Expansion Areas


Xto mpz roz expansion

XTO - MPZ/ROZ Expansion

  • Scope:

    • Determine capacity of current facility

    • Determine facility design required for forecasted rates

  • Findings:

    • Concluded that Sub-Battery 228 will experience bottlenecking due to the current piping

    • The forecasted gas production requires significant facility upgrades

XTO University Block 20 Expansion

  • History:

    • University Land

    • Drilling started 2 ½ years ago

    • Better production than expected

  • Plan:

    • 4 wells are planned

    • Additional separation and treating required to meet forecasted production

  • Scope:

    • Locate potential tie-ins

    • Determine appropriate sized vessels

    • Determine line sizing
