Horizontal Wells and the Mississippian Limestone Play

Most horizontal wells since 2010 have been drilled to access poorly drained reservoir compart- ments and low-permeable oil zones in Mississippian carbonates in southern Kansas, particularly in the tier of counties immediately north of the Oklahoma state line. This new engineering and geological play is

Application of the GasGun™ in Kansas Oil and Gas

Four other wells on the lease produce a total of 9 BOPD. Vess Oil Corp. Waterhouse #1 Mississippian Limestone Hodgeman County, Kansas . The Waterhouse #1 was shot with the GasGun™ in August 2001, utilizing a six-foot gun in the open-hole at a depth of 4274’-80’. The well was then treated with 110 gallons of carbon disulfide and 750 gallons of 10% acid. Prior to the application, the well

Mississippi Lime moves into mainstream oil production in

The Mississippian limestone or Mississippi Lime play started around 2009 with the first horizontal wells in Oklahoma with SandRidge Energy leading the way. Three years later, companies like Devon, High Mount, and Calyx are opening up a horizontal Woodford play in the same area.

Mississippi Lime Overview Maps Geology Counties

Mississippi Lime covers 17 million acres, and conventional wells have produced for decades from this source rock. Over 1,200 vertical wells were drilled with an average EUR of 40 MBo. Vertical well costs are approximately $0.6 million using a two stage frac, with updated EURs of 60 MBoe to 100 MBoe.

Mississippian (geology) Wikipedia

The Mississippian (/ ˌ m ɪ s. ɪ ˈ s ɪ p. i. ə n / miss-ih-SIP-ee-ə-n, also known as Lower Carboniferous or Early Carboniferous) is a subperiod in the geologic timescale or a subsystem of the geologic record. It is the earlier/lower of two subperiods of the Carboniferous period lasting from roughly 358.9 to 323.2 million years ago. As with most other geochronologic units, the rock beds

mississippian Enverus

The Mississippian Lime consists of a number of various formations that are Mississippian in age (~320 360 mya). Lithology varies throughout the entire stratigraphic interval, and lithological features include fine-grained limestones, argillaceous muds, spiculites, tripolites and chert.

Upper siliceous limestone of Mansfield's (1927) Wells is assigned to Grandeur tongue of Park City. Wells as restricted consists of sandstone, red beds and carbonate beneath Grandeur. Restricted Wells occurs in southeast ID (Snake River basin, Wasatch uplift) and northern UT (Wasatch uplift). Contains beds of Pennsylvanian and Early Permian age.

Mississippian Aquifer Iowa Geological Survey

Productive wells from the Mississippian aquifer supply private and public water supplies for much of the north-central part of the state (map above). The water quality is generally good. In contrast, the same aquifer produces much smaller yields of poorer quality water in central and southeastern Iowa. Throughout its range the aquifer consists of a thick sequence of limestone and dolomite

Mississippian Aquifer IGS

About: The Mississippian aquifer primarily consists of limestones and dolomites that formed when Iowa was covered with a warm, tropical sea. Corals, crinoids, brachiopods, and snails were common in the sea, and can often be found as fossils across Iowa. Rock Age: 320 to 350 million years. Water Movement: Along cracks and fractures in the dolomites. Production: Yields 50 to 100 gallons per

A Geomechanical Approach To Evaluate Brittleness Using

This becomes particularly critical when exploring and producing in tight or fracture dominated reservoirs such as that of the Mississippian limestone in the study area on the Northern Shelf of the Anadarko basin, Oklahoma. Previous work has defined brittleness on the basis of mineralogy or elastic rock parameters. This study explores a new definition of brittleness based on geomechanical

Stratigraphic architecture of the Mississippian limestone

The Mississippian Limestone formed through complex structural, stratigraphic, and diagenetic processes involving subsidence, tectonic uplift leading to periodic subaerial exposure, changes in ocean chemistry, variability inherent with carbonate cyclicity, as well as postdepositional alteration. These geologic complexities led to significant heterogeneity and compartmentalization within

Calibrating seismic fracture prediction using borehole

Fracturing in the Mississippian Limestone has been investigated with a wide range of studies. However, most of these studies lie east of the Nemaha Uplift (Figure 1). Trumbo (2014) speculated fracturing in the Mississippian based on sporadic production in vertical wells into a reservoir that lacked matrix porosity. Stearns (2015) saw

The Mississippi Leadville Limestone Exploration Play of

The Mississippian Leadville Limestone has produced over 53 million barrels of oil from six fields in the northern Paradox Basin region, referred to as the Paradox fold and fault belt, of Utah and Colorado. All of these fields are currently operated by independent producers. There have been no new discoveries since the early 1960s, and only independent producers continue to explore for

An integrated study of a Mississippian tripolitic chert

Mississippian lime. Blue box location of study area . The Mississippian section contains highly fractured limestone and nonporous chert with sweet spots of highly porous tripolitic chert. The play concept is to drill horizontal wells perpendicular to the fractures in the lime and nonporous chert and then provide migration pathways
