Paul S Northrop, James L Wilson: Method for producing low permeability reservoirs using a single well. Mobil Oil Corporation, Alexander J McKillop, George W Hager Jr, January 3, 1995: US05377756 (248 worldwide citation)

A method for recovering connate fluids (e.g. oil) from a low permeability subterranean reservoir (e.g. diatomite) through a single wellbore. Upper and lower intervals are fractured from the wellbore that the fractured intervals only partially overlap, thereby leaving a partial, natural barrier forme ...

Paul S Northrop, Robert S Timmer: Method for producing low permeability reservoirs using steam. Mobil Oil Corporation, Alexander J McKillop, George W Hager Jr, May 16, 1995: US05415231 (235 worldwide citation)

A method for recovering hydrocarbons (e.g. oil) from a low permeability subterranean reservoir of the type comprised primarily of diatomite. A first slug or volume of a heated fluid (e.g. 60% quality steam) is injected into the reservoir at a pressure greater than the fracturing pressure of the rese ...
