This data release contains oil well annular cement and casing damage data from parts of the South Belridge and Lost Hills Oil Fields in western Kern County, California. The study area coincides with where groundwater with less than 10,000 milligrams per liter total dissolved solids and outside an exempt aquifer are located overlying oil-producing zones in these fields. In the study areas, hydraulic fracturing is occurring in mature oil fields where oil and gas development has occurred for approximately a century. The data were compiled from records of the California Department of Conservation, Geologic Energy Management Division (CalGEM). The data compiled include construction information for oil wells, drilling...
Natural gas plays a key role in our nation’s clean energy future. Recent advances in drilling technologies—including horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing—have made vast reserves of natural gas economically recoverable in the US. Responsible development of America’s oil and gas resources offers important economic, energy security, and environmental benefits. Hydraulic fracturing is a well stimulation technique used to maximize production of oil and natural gas in unconventional reservoirs, such as shale, coalbeds, and tight sands. During hydraulic fracturing, specially engineered fluids containing chemical additives and proppant are pumped under high pressure into the well to create and hold open fractures...
Sequestration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in depleted oil reservoirs is one of the viable options for carbon management. This paper describes the preliminary modeling and flow simulation part of a DOE sponsored CO2 sequestration project. The main objective of the project is to understand the feasibility of long term sequestration of CO2 in a depleted oil reservoir through a field demonstration experiment. Before the actual CO2 injection begins, it was necessary to determine feasibility of injection. Advanced geologic modeling and flow simulation techniques were used to develop a model for the proposed target interval. A geologic model was developed using data available from well logs and cores. Subsequently, porous...

Soil gas methane and combustible gas concentrations collected from oil and gas well pad locations in Utah. Soil gas samples were measured on site and/or collected for later analysis as described in supporting documentation. Multiple sample locations around well head and depths within the soil profile are available for select sites. Supporting documents provide information of sample collection protocol and data quality assurance.

To meet the India’s projected power demand over the next 25 years, over 300,000 MW of new e generating capacity will need to be installed. Cogeneration, the combined generation of steam and electricity, is an efficient and cost-effective means to save energy and reduce pollution. Many studies around the world have identified sugar mill cogeneration as an attractive low-cost option to place additional generating capacity on the grid. Most studies estimate the cogeneration potential of India’s sugar industry at around 3500 MW . e The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has implemented a Greenhouse Gas Pollution Prevention (GEP) Project to assist in the direction and pace of India’s power sector...

The polygons representing fields were created by constructing a grid of ¼ sq. mi. cells and proximal polygons centered on all wells in southern Louisiana and then combining and merging the adjacent polygons having the same value for field name. The wells data used to create these fields in southern Louisiana were obtained from a public database provided by the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources (LDNR), Office of Conservation. This dataset contains basic data and interpretations developed and compiled by the U.S. Geological Survey's Framework Studies and Assessment of the Gulf Coast Project. Other major sources of data include publicly available information from state agencies as well as publications of the...

Total volumes of produced water disposed at percolation and evaporation ponds for the Midway-Sunset and Buena Vista Oil Fields, Kern County, California were estimated for 1959-2021. Data were compiled from state and local agencies’ databases, including the California State Water Resources Control Board GeoTracker, California Integrated Water Quality System (CIWQS), and Ponds Status Report (2019); the California Geologic Energy Management Division (CalGEM) Well Production and Injection Database (1977-2017); and the Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board Pond List (updated February 11, 2021). For pond disposal facilities that receive produced water from multiple sources, volumes were estimated from cumulative...

This is the final report of a two-year, Laboratory-Directed Research and Development (LDRD) project at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). Initially, the project focused on creating an ocean oil spill model and working with the major oil companies to compare their data with the Los Alamos global ocean model. As a result of this initial effort, Los Alamos worked closely with the Eddy Joint Industry Project (EJIP), a consortium oil and gas producing companies in the United States. The central theme of our project was to use output produced from LANL's global ocean model to look in detail at ocean currents in selected geographic areas of the world of interest to consortium members. Once ocean currents are well...

For each of the four Miocene sequences, polygons representing producing areas within fields were created by constructing a grid of ¼ sq. mi. cells and proximal polygons centered on all producing wells and then combining and merging the adjacent polygons having the same value for field name. Although the polygons are based on the producing wells only, they may also include some dry holes. The producing intervals were determined by comparing the depth of production to the structure contours (see metadata for the structure contours). The data are provided in four shapefiles--one for each Miocene sequence (Lower 1, Lower 2, Middle and Upper). These datasets contain basic data and interpretations developed and compiled...
