Tight Oil Consortium
The Tight Oil Consortium is created to solve multidisciplinary problems facing industry in the arena of low permeability (tight) oil reservoirs. To accomplish this goal, we are composed of researchers from geoscience and the petroleum engineering disciplines.
Our objective is to increase oil production rates and recoveries from tight oil reservoirs in Western Canada. These reservoirs include Cardium, 2nd White Specs, Montney, Exshaw, Bakken, Duvernay, Muskwa, Nordegg, and Viking.. This will be accomplished by first acquiring, compiling and interpreting the data. Then we will develop new methods and models for reservoir characterization, completions optimization and forecasting rates and recoveries.
