Digitized oil and gas pads in the Piceance Basin of Western Colorado in 2005 based on a sample from 2015 data

USGS Publication: Data Release
Digitization of a selection of oil and gas well pad sites in the Piceance region of Western Colorado. A random sample of 146 pad locations from the "Digitized Piceance Oil and Gas Pads of Western Colorado, 2015" were used to identify the locations digitized in this dataset...

A Database and Probabilistic Assessment Methodology for Carbon Dioxide-enhanced Oil Recovery and Associated Carbon Dioxide Retention in the United States

Outside Publication: Energy Procedia
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has developed an assessment methodology for estimating the potential incremental technically recoverable oil resources resulting from carbon dioxide-enhanced oil recovery (CO2-EOR) in reservoirs with appropriate depth, pressure, and oil composition...

Chemical and Isotopic Evidence for CO2 Charge and Migration within Bravo Dome and Potential CO2 Leakage to the Southwest

Outside Publication: Energy Procedia
Gas analyses from northeastern New Mexico, USA indicate that previous interpretations of the location of gas charge into the northeastern portion of Bravo Dome are likely correct, and that there may be multiple migration pathways from the same source for different regions in northeastern New Mexico...

Assessment of undiscovered continuous gas resources in the Amu Darya Basin Province of Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Iran, and Afghanistan, 2017

USGS Publication: Fact Sheet 2017-3058
Using a geology-based assessment methodology, the U.S. Geological Survey estimated mean undiscovered, technically recoverable continuous resources of 35.1 trillion cubic feet of gas in the Amu Darya Basin Province of Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Iran, and...

Mantle and crustal gases of the Colorado Plateau: Geochemistry, sources, and migration pathways

Outside Publication: Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta

The Colorado Plateau hosts several large accumulations of naturally occurring, non-hydrocarbon gases, including CO2, N2, and the noble gases, making it a good field location to study the fluxes of these gases within the crust and to the atmosphere...

3D Pressure-limited approach to model and estimate CO2 injection and storage capacity: saline Mount Simon Formation

Outside Publication: Greenhouse Gases Science and Technology
To estimate the carbon dioxide (CO2) injection and storage capacity of saline formations, we used Tough2-ECO2N simulation software to develop a pressure-limited (dynamic) simulation approach based on applying three-dimensional (3D)...

Assessment of continuous oil and gas resources in the San Jorge Basin Province, Argentina, 2017

USGS Publication: Fact Sheet 2017-3043
Using a geology-based assessment methodology, the U.S. Geological Survey estimated mean undiscovered, technically recoverable resources of 78 million barrels of oil and 8.9 trillion cubic feet of gas in the San Jorge Basin Province, Argentina...
