True Gets OK For Gas Injection Recovery

True Oil LLC estimates it can recover between 300,000 and 400,000 barrels of crude oil from injecting ethane and other gases into a McKenzie County, ND well located in the Red Wing Creek Unit.

The ND Industrial Commission approved the new plan, which will use the Burlington Northern #22-27 well in Sec. 27, T148N-R101W and other wells for injection, in February.

True plans to upgrade the Red Wing Creek gas plant. When that project is completed, one of the plant’s byproducts will be a gas stream consisting of 95% ethane, 3.46% methane, 1.03% carbon dioxide, and 0.51% propane, which will be used in the injection wells.

The unit was created in 1981, and 1,341,544 barrels of liquids were injected through March 2010. Additionally, 1,249,751 thousand cubic feet of gas were injected through December 1991.
