A Technical Report on Macpherson’s Steam Flood Performance

A Technical Report on Macpherson’s Steam Flood Performance

This paper, presented at SPE’s Western North American Regional Meeting in Bakersfield, discusses the “Steam Injector Relocation” strategy devised to enhance the field’s performance.
