Naval Petroleum Reserve No. 3 (NPR-3), better known as the Teapot Domeoil field, is the last U.S.federally-owned and operated oil field. It provides a unique opportunity for experiments to provide scientific insight into CO2-enhanced oil recovery (EOR), geologic CO2 storage, and other topics involving subsurface fluid behavior. Towards that end, a combination of federal, academic, and industrial support has produced outstanding characterizations of important oil and brine-bearing reservoirs at NPR-3. This thorough site characterization provides an unparalleled opportunity for industry and others to use the site. Data sets include geological, geophysical, geochemical, geomechanical, and operational data over a wide range of geological conditions. Importantly, these data, many in digital form, are available in the public domain due to NPR-3’s federal status. Many institutions are already using portions of the Teapot Domedata set as the basis for a variety of geoscience, reservoir modeling, and other research efforts.

Fifteen geological units, 9 oil-bearing and 6 brine-bearing, have been studied to varying degrees. Over 1200 wells in the field are active or accessible, and over 400 of these penetrate formations located below the depth corresponding to the supercritical point for CO2. Studies include siliciclastic and carbonate reservoirs; shale, carbonate, and anhydrite cap rocks; fractured and unfractured units; and over-pressured and under-pressured zones. Geophysical data include 3D seismic and vertical seismic profiles. Reservoir data include stratigraphic, sedimentological, petrologic, petrographic, porosity, and permeability data. These have served as the basis for preliminary 3D flow simulations. Geomechanical data describe natural and drilling-induced fractures, in-situ stresses, pressure, and production history. Geochemical data cover soil gas, noble gas, organic, and other measures. The conditions of these reservoirs directly or indirectly represent many reservoirs in the U.S., Canada, and overseas.The presentation will focus on several key elements of the field characterization effort, and provide updates on several planned or active projects.

Vicki received her undergraduate degree from the Universityof Virginiaand her M.S. degree in Petroleum Engineering from StanfordUniversity.  She worked for Mobil Oil Corp. for eight years, with positions in Reservoir Engineering, Operations Engineering, and E&P Planning, in their field and Division offices in Denver, BakersfieldCalifornia, and CasperWyoming. 

In 1987 she resigned from Mobil in Bakersfieldto begin consulting, focusing on reservoir engineering, thermal recovery, and property evaluations.  In 1990, she and her family returned to Casper, where she continued consulting until 1993.  She then began working as a contractor for the U.S. Dept. of Energy (DOE) on engineering projects at NPR-3 (Teapot Dome), and later for the Rocky Mountain Oilfield Testing Center (RMOTC).  In 2003, she and research partners initiated what is now the national geologic carbon storage test site at NPR-3, for which she is CO2 Program Manager and Team Leader.  

Vicki has served in a variety of positions in the Society of Petroleum Engineers, for both the Stanford and Casper, Wyomingchapters, and has authored or co-authored a number of papers and posters on the Teapot Dome CO2 program.  

She and her husband Bob (a Denvernative) love living in Wyoming, and have 3 children.
