Site Visit to Denbury's Hastings Oil Field

  • Tuesday, November 17 - CST

    Brazoria County, TX
  • Hastings Field is located south of Houston, Texas.  Denbury initiated CO2 injection in the West Hastings Unit during the fourth quarter of 2010 upon completion of the construction of the Green Pipeline. Due to the large vertical oil column that exists in the field, Denbury is developing the Frio reservoir using dedicated CO2 injection and producing wells for each of the major sand intervals. Denbury began producing oil from EOR operations at Hastings Field in the first quarter of 2012, and booked initial proved tertiary reserves for the West Hastings Unit in 2012. In 2015, Denbury will begin employing a new series flood approach to certain portions of this field. The series flood includes CO2 flooding one zone at a time and moving up the reservoir, which they believe will enhance the overall efficiency of the flood, and may also be applied in the future to other fields with appropriate reservoir characteristics.
