Enhanced Recovery

Increasing Economic Viability

MHA has significant domestic U.S. and international experience evaluating enhanced recovery projects including waterflooding, CO2 injection, miscible flooding, and thermal recovery projects.

Cedar Hills, North Dakota

MHA developed a geological model that incorporated the critical parameters required to accurately predict historical and future performance of the field.

Riley Ridge Field, Wyoming

The MHA evaluation was the foundation of testimony in a legal arbitration before the WOGCC. The Commission ruled in favor, and the project has moved forward with development and injection plans.

Ashtart Field, Tunisia

MHA designed and evaluated the laboratory PVT and EOR studies to properly characterize the reservoir fluids, the anticipated miscibility pressures, and the residual saturations following the flooding.

Salt Creek Field, Wyoming

MHA evaluated various aspects of a commercial demonstration project including performance under both immiscible and miscible CO2 injection and various operating strategies to optimize field facility requirements.

North Buzachi Field, Kazakhstan

MHA staff prepared a development feasibility study for this field located on the northwestern part of the Buzachi peninsula near the Caspian Sea.

Round Mountain Field, California

MHA conducted a thermal simulation model study of a large steamflood project for the Vedder sand in this field and determined the optimum plan for future development wells and steam injection rates.

Poso Creek Field, California

MHA performed a steamflood simulation study of the Basal Etchegoin sands on a 160 acre lease resulting in a grassroots steamflood project for a neighboring lease using a combination of horizontal and vertical wells.

Lynch Canyon Field, California

MHA constructed a thermal simulation model of the small heavy oil field to determine a preferred strategy for conversion from steam cycling to steamflood and enable optimum steam injection rates.

The following are a few examples of MHA experience in the evaluation of enhanced recovery projects:
