Enhanced Oil Recovery from Elm Coulee Bakken – Social, Technical and Economic Implications
The frenzied activity of recent Bakken development has been accompanied by a host of practical problems, ranging from decaying roads and over-stressed sewer systems to an increase in crime and other undesirable activity. However, the value of the Bakken oil resource is so great that it could power the economy of the area for years if Enhanced Oil Recovery can be made to work there. Because EOR projects could last for decades, oil producers and landowners must find a stable balance between oil and agricultural interests.
