Drilling Production Energy of North Dakota

Production. Once a well is drilled and completed, it will begin producing oil. After initial production, a well will usually need artificial lift to continue producing, such as the pumping unit shown to the left. Most wells drilled today will continue producing for 45 years or more.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a geothermal injection well? Geothermal injection wells are critical for any geothermal project and maintain the sustainability of geothermal resources. These wells inject fluids that were produced during geothermal resource recovery back into the reservoir where the fluids can be reheated by the hot rock and then used again.

To produce oil and gas, holes are made in the casing in the reservoir interval, allowing hydrocarbons to flow into the well and up to the surface where they are processed and transported to market. Once a well is drilled, cased, and cemented, many also undergo stimulation processes, such as hydraulic fracturing, to boost production and minimize the amount of residual oil remaining in the formation.
