AMOCO CO2 PILOT SEEKS TO INCREASE COALBED GAS FLOW

Amoco Production Co. plans to test the effectiveness of carbon dioxide to boost coalbed methane recovery. Injection into a pilot project started at mid-December in the northwest part of the San Juan basin's Cretaceous Fruitland coalbeds. Amoco's 7A Florence Gas Com well in San Juan County, N.M,, serves as the CO2 injection well for coalbeds at 2,250 and 2,750 ft. An offset well, 2 Florence D, will monitor gas composition, pressure, and production response.
