Carbon dioxide gas in demand WALDEN, Colo. - You can't burn it in your kitchen range. For many years it was simply a nuisance in Continental Oil's McCallum Field In North Park, Colo. , just south of the Wyoming border. But Conoco has developed an expanding market for the once despised carbon dioxide gas, which is so plentiful in the high altitude field discovered in 1926. Oil and gas wells often yield small amounts of C02, but In the McCallum field the gas volume runs around 10 million cubic feet dally, 92 to 93 per cent carbon dioxide, according to Petroleum Information. Several years ago Conoco built a pilot plant to liquefy the carbon dioxide gas in North Park. Some of it was trucked to the Sussex and Meadow Creek fields north of Salt Creek for experimental injection In low pressure wells, to boost output. The liquefaction plant near the town of Walden was enlarged two years ago to turn out 50 tons of liquefied carbon dioxide dally, Conoco has estimated It has more than 100 billion cubic feet of the gas in reserves in the field. Daily . production runs 10 million cubic feet of C02 along with 350' barrels of oil and condensate. A ton of liquefied gas Is processed from 17,200 cubic feet of C02 at 250 psi at a temperature of minus 10 degrees. Other companies like Amoco Production, Fuelco, Atlantic Richfield and Shell Oil have found they can transport the liquefied C02 to oil and gas wells which need "stimulation." Thus there's a growing market for the product in the Rocky Mountain region. You can buy the stuff for $30 a ton, liquefied, at the Walden facility, or get It delivered for $50 a ton within a 100-mile radius. Every additional 100 miles costs another f 10 a ton. Conoco reports sales ranging from 300 to 600 tons monthly, and anticipates sales ranging to 700 and 800 tons a month this summer. It has three 23-ton tanker truck transports for delivery. About 160 tons of the liquid can be stored In the Walden plant. Most of the carbon dioxide from the field has been used In the southern Wyoming-northern Colorado area. Amoco Production Is a regular user of carbon dioxide for treating gas wells in the Wamsutter-Rock Springs area. Fuelco and others have used it for treating gas wells on Colorado s western slope. It has been trucked as far as the Havre area in northern Montana gnd-Hhe San Juan BaW-ilfnorthwestern New Mexico. Others are looking at carbon dioxide gas with renewed Interest. ARCO Is evaluating a carbon dioxide drilling program on the Sheep Mountain Unit In southeastern Colorado's Huerfano County, Shell Is conducting a C02 program in the McElmo Dome area of Montezuma County, Colo. And Amoco has drilled a number of carbon dioxide gas wells In northeastern New Mexico. The output will be used for enhanced recovery projects In West Texas oil fields, PI sald.Thus a gas once considered useless and something of a nuisance. has found a role to play In helping to overcome the energy shortfall, TIXACO PRODUCTS ANY QUANTITY .

Jones said two exploratory holes 40 and 60 feet deep have been drilled west of Halley -partly to test the geochemistry and partly to test a type of portable drill, "We are trying to determine whether there Is any reason for us to embark on an exploration program," Jones said. There are three persons at the site, He reported preliminary Information Indicates the geology Is favorable for uranium and that the preliminary Investigation for favorable sites to explore for uranium In Idaho Is part of a BWPD from Muddy 7522-34 (gross) In Quest fid, Davis Oil 2-1 Bicentennial-Fed, sw se 20-40n-G(iw - TD 7705, PB 7705, IPF 808 BO, 4 BW. 440,000 efgpd, from Muddy 7083-703 (gross).
