Tracing enhanced oil recovery signatures in casing gases from the Lost Hills oil field using noble gases

Abstract:

Enhanced oil recovery (EOR) and hydraulic fracturing practices are commonly used methods to improve hydrocarbon extraction efficiency; however, the environmental effects of such practices remain poorly understood. EOR is particularly prevalent in oil fields throughout California where water resources are in high demand and the disposal of large volumes of produced water may affect groundwater quality. Consequently, it is essential to better understand the fate of injected (EOR) fluids in Cali...
