U.S. Crude Oil Production Potential: A Stochastic Outlook through 2030

The quantitative approach by well known author, Rafael Sandrea, PhD, is to apply his unique proprietary methodology to analyze each source of US crude. From basins, tight oil, top producing fields, plus study of all reserves numbers, to establish a base line, minimum of output, for each crude source. The impact of both tight oil and new NGLs on US supply over the next 20 years was also analyzed.

    Among findings, the report notes that:
  • The upside scenario for tight oil points toward a peak potential of nearly 4 million b/d.
  • CO2-EOR can recover up to 10% of the 380 billion barrels of stranded oil. Chemical EOR methods, recently proven overseas, could contribute with an additional recovery of at least another 15%.
  • The upside scenario for US crude oil shows a potential growth to almost 8 million b/d. By the same token, total liquids supply could reach 16 million b/d, from 10 million b/d today.

All outlooks are stochastic rather than a single deterministic forecast. This approach provides a better account for intrinsic indeterminates associated with even the ‘best’ estimates of EOR potential, of the probable recoverable reserves of tight oil resource plays, and of the most likely yet-to-find reserves over the 20-year forecast period. Reserves are the unique parameter that determines the upper limit of production capacity of any oil or gas field.

Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) Survey 2012

The biennial PennEnergy Enhanced Oil Recovery Survey and associated articles have uncovered a new future for EOR in conjunction with the emerging unconventional plays.

The survey contains the regular seven tables plus three important new articles regarding the application of EOR to the vast unconventional oil and natural gas developments. New applications could economically sustain the world’s hydrocarbon supplies for decades.

One of the new developments is improved CO2 mobility rate and flood conformance as explained in one of the articles that come with the new EOR Survey.
