Paper presented at the SPE Western Regional Meeting, June 25–27, 1997
Paper Number: SPE-38309-MS
... Abstract This paper presents calibration methodologies for representation of the Tar Zone in the FBIIA of the Wilmington Field using historical performance data. The early history dating back to the 1940's includes the superimposed effect of compaction and mild aquifer influx. Because...

Paper presented at the SPE California Regional Meeting, April 2–4, 1975
Paper Number: SPE-5366-MS
... Abstract In the Wilmington Field, direct channeling of injection water from injector to producer has adversely affected oil recovery. The solution to this problem may be approached from two directions. The first is to seal off the channel at the injector. The second approach is to treat...

... in the Wilmington Field. The Wilmington Field is a faulted anticline structure in the Los Angeles Basin with alternating sand/shale sequences, which straddles offshore and onshore locations in Long Beach, California. It has been actively waterflooded since 1953 and currently injects over 1.6 million barrels...

Paper presented at the SPE International Symposium and Exhibition on Formation Damage Control, February 15–17, 2006
Paper Number: SPE-98304-MS
... Most successful completions in the Wilmington Field, Long Beach, CA, must address two concerns: formation sand control and damage bypass / reservoir stimulation. For many years the completion strategies in this field have included some combination of conventional circulating gravel...
