UW’s EORI Finds Potential for Improved Oil Recovery in Two Fields

December 13, 2022

The University of Wyoming’s Enhanced Oil Recovery Institute (EORI) has found the potential for improved oil recovery in the Rozet and Windmill fields in northeast Wyoming.

Reservoir mapping of the Muddy Formation at the Rozet field and subsequent modeling of a waterflood using StreamSim software indicate that additional recoverable reserves can be realized through improved waterflood design.

Additionally, a study of the Muddy reservoir at nearby Windmill Field, which is still in primary production, serves as a good comparison to what might be accomplished there with the introduction of a secondary recovery program.

EORI’s bulletin detailing these findings is available here.

The mission of EORI is to facilitate a meaningful and measurable increase in recoverable reserves and production of oil and natural gas in Wyoming that may otherwise not be realized. Key to this is the effective and efficient transfer of relevant technology, information and knowledge to Wyoming producers.

EORI believes that its mission is being met when producers consider EORI as a vital source of relevant technology, information, expertise and knowledge for Wyoming fields.
