Tertiary Oil Recovery is Target of Bumines Project.
Am Oil & Gas Reporter 1974 Apr; 17(1):46-47
The Bureau of Mines energy research center in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, has begun a field demonstration of a micellar slug treatment of Tertiary oil recovery from the Bartlesville sand in Delaware- Childers field. The site of the demonstration is about 8 miles northeast of Nowata, Oklahoma. The micellar slug will be followed by a polymer-thickened water for mobility control. The field investigation will provide information for industry to follow in attempts to recover larger percentages of proved oil reserves.
