... Abstract Oil reservoirs in the Uintah Basin are extremely complex and have to be considered in the ‘Unconventional’ category. This is partially because of the lacustrine depositional environment which resulted in numerous self-sourcing reservoirs that vary greatly in wettability and mineralogy...

... Abstract Advancements in horizontal drilling with hydraulic fracturing have enabled commercial oil production from Bakken tight oil reservoirs. However, the primary recovery factor remains very low (less than 15%), resulting in the high volume of oil remaining in place. Hence, it is extremely...
