Abstract: Engineering and Geologic Challenges in Heavy-Oil Recovery

G. Previous HitPaulTop Wilhite

Heavy-oil resources in the four-state region adjacent to the common boundaries of Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Arkansas represent a potential crude-oil supply for the Mid-Continent region. Development of this resource was generally uneconomic prior to the Arab embargo, but price increases for domestic oil offer new possibilities. Typical deposits in southeastern Kansas characterize the size of the resource and identify geologic parameters which are needed for evaluation of potential oil recovery.
