Title: Bodcau In Situ Combustion Project. Second annual report, July 1, 1977--June 30, 1978

Abstract

The five patterns included in the Bodcau In Situ Combustion Project are a portion of Cities Service Company's total combustion project on its acreage in the Bellevue Field. Pattern developments on Cities Service Company's Bodcau Fee B lease are shown. Patterns 12 through 16 comprise this demonstration area. The patterns cover 19 productive acres containing approximately 2 million barrels of 19/sup 0/ API crude. Reservoir properties and project area data are presented. Project area structure and net pay isopach maps are presented. Through the first two years of the contract, cumulative air and water injection have been 4,197,331 MCF and 449,605 barrels. Resulting production has been 270,802 barrels of oil. This represents a recovery of 13.6% of the oil in place since the start of combustion. Research conducted has consisted of combustion tube tests, produced fluid analyses and pressure transient tests. Most of the combustion tube runs were conducted during the first year under contract as were the pressure transient tests. Fluid analyses are performed every six months with produced oil, water, emulsions, and gases being sampled and analyzed from each well. The six-year project has an estimated ultimate cost of $8,229,898. Through the first two years, a total ofmore » $3,610,356 has been spent. Current operating expenses at the field level for operations, maintenance, well service, and Louisiana Severance Taxes are $5.46 per gross barrel of oil produced.« less
