Geologic considerations for enhanced oil recovery in Elm Coulee field, Richland County, Montana, Williston Basin
The Elm Coulee field in Richland County, Montana, was discovered in 2000 and historically is the largest field producing from the Devonian – Mississippian Bakken Formation in the Williston Basin. The 530 square mile field has an estimated ultimate recovery of 300 million barrels or more of oil. Significant reserves are still present in the reservoir, making the Bakken Formation in the Elm Coulee Field an attractive target for enhanced oil recovery (EOR). The Middle Bakken Member (MBM) is the most significant reservoir of the Bakken Petroleum System in the Elm Coulee Field and will be the focus ...
