  11. HOGAN MONTHLY PRODUCTION BEFORE PURCHASE PEAK PRODUCTION 403,934 Bbl/mo October, 1968 WATER PURCHASE BY SIGNAL 18,738 Bbl/mo July, 1990 OIL

  12. OPPORTUNITIES • Workovers • Continue conversion from gas lift to rod pumps • Waterflood by 1993…. • Strategic redrilling

  13. GEOLOGIC CHALLENGES • Co-mingled production • Hard to allocate production among zones • Sparse core data • Most porosity/permeability data from logs • Sparse pressure data • Can’t use pressure regimes to establish fault blocks • Few dipmeters • Little help in locating faults • Inclined oil/water contacts • Confuses fault interpretation

  14. CARPINTERIA FIELD OIL-WATER CONTACTS

  15. STRATEGIES • Improve production with workovers/RTPs • Prepare for waterflood and redrills • Geologic and petrophysical studies • Participate in Department of Energy programs • Advanced Reservoir Management project - geologic and reservoir studies • Class III - financial assistance with redrills • Leverage resources through technology • Digitize well logs and field reports • Link employees and consultants electronically • Use 3-D computer modeling

  28. WHAT’S NEXT? • MORE THAN 30 SIMILAR REDRILL PROJECTS ARE AVAILABLE FROM PLATFORMS HOGAN AND HOUCHIN • GRASS ROOTS HORIZONTALS ARE BEING STUDIED BELOW HOBSON FAULT AND INTO NEIGHBORING STATE LEASES • DEEP POSSIBILITIES EXIST IN OLDER MIOCENE SECTIONS
