Experimental approach to investigate minimum miscibility pressures in the Bakken
The Bakken is among the shale reservoirs which have been discovered to hold a vast amount of resource contributing to the production boom in the US. This unconventional reservoir, like most others, displays favorable initial production rates due to stimulation by hydraulic fracturing, but production rates quickly decline after few months. Due to the extremely low permeability and low recoveries, miscible gas injection is considered for improving the recovery of oil in the Bakken formation. Feasibility of miscible gas injection in the Bakken would depend on the analysis of minimum miscibility ...
