  • 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)

  • 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
