.... The Upper Red River Formation, located in North Dakota's Cedar Creek Anticline (CCA) Field presents significant remaining oil-in-place, albeit a high-water saturation from waterflood operations undergoing since the 1960s. The residual (post-waterflooding), oil saturation, makes the Red River Formation...
