Note: Due to maintenance at the Hastings Oil Field, the tour was scheduled at the Oyster Bayou Field
Denbury Resources acquired a majority interest in Oyster Bayou Field in 2007. The field is located in southeast Texas, east of Galveston Bay, and is somewhat unique when compared to their other CO2 EOR projects because the field covers a relatively small area of 3,912 acres. Denbury began CO2 injections into Oyster Bayou Field in the second quarter of 2010, commenced tertiary production in the fourth quarter of 2011 from the Frio A-1 zone, and booked initial proved tertiary reserves for the field in 2012. In 2014, Denbury completed development of the Frio A-2 zone. Production from Oyster Bayou Field is believed to have peaked in 2015.
