Paradigm Oil and Gas has deployed its first Transportable Enhanced Oil Recovery (T-EOR) Platform on its Chilson A and B properties in Texas for its first field use.

The company prepared the first two of twelve earlier producing abandoned wells to receive and test the T-EOR Platform.

The T-EOR Platform, a new oil production system, is a turnkey integrated and portable oil recovery platform that can be deployed quickly and economically to recover oil from earlier producing oil wells with known oil reserves that have not been fully developed.

The company has identified over 6,000 abandoned wells in Texas alone that are potential oil producing candidates for the T-EOR Platform.

Initially, the T-EOR Platform will produce from the existing wells on a rotating weekly basis to determine their natural flow rate.

The company said that once a base line has been established, the company plans to implement various enhanced oil recovery techniques, like surfactant chemical treatment that is being recommended from Oil Chem, to improve production output.
