South Casper Creek Field provides a field case history of previous and current thermal activities, testing several steamflood strategies in a steeply dipping, geologically complex reservoir with the presence of an active edgewater drive. The thermal experience in the field indicates that geologic factors are the dominant influence on steamflood performance. The accurate interpretation and proper application of an improved geologic model directly affects oil production response.
