  • Gas injection to increase recovery from the Bakken formation

    The Bakken formation, in the Williston Basin, has tremendous oil reserves estimated to be in the hundreds of billions of barrels. During the last decade, the Bakken has been rapidly developed with advances in horizontal drilling and improved multi–stage hydraulic fracturing. The primary recovery factor, however, has remained very low, around 5%–10% due in part to the extremely low permeability. ...
