EnergyMakers is now publishing its fifth year of Bottomhole Pressure studies across the most active oil and gas basins in the U.S. Here’s our shallow basin-wide Bottomhole Pressure trends as of 2021. (Stay tuned here for deep-well BHP trends!)
Only shallow wells in New Mexico are bucking the current pressurization trends, and that is because new shallow injection in New Mexico was severely restricted back in 2017.
The trends are no surprise, but a trend is not a planning tool. EnergyMakers provides ACTIONABLE bottomhole pressure DATA for every UIC well – to plan your critical subsurface operations:
- Alternatives to waning or restricted Saltwater Disposal Well (SWD) capacity
- Identifying suitable recompletion zones
- Avoidance of Regulatory and Operator-led restrictions on Volumes and Pressures, in attempts to mitigate Seismicity
- Deep Well Injection Selection: proximity to the Pre-Cambrian basement, Lost Circulation Zones (LCZ), and Seismic risk
- Shallow Well Injection Selection: Shallow well pressure escalation, risk of LCZ, permit non-compliance, and Seismic Risk
- Water Reuse and Disposal Planning, Water Balances
- Planning drilling programs through overpressured shallow formations (e.g., San Andres)
And emerging opportunities:
- CO2 Sequestration
- CO2 Enhanced Recovery Operation
- Blue Hydrogen Production and Decarbonization
- Asset Acquisition: Will the seller’s assets continue to perform as represented?
BHP Data available for every SWD and EOR well, every formation, all depths, throughout Central and Southern U.S.
