ExxonMobil Production Co. recently announced that drilling and construction have started on an enhanced oil recovery project at the Means Field in Andrews County, Texas. The first phase of the project could potentially recover as much as 5 million barrels of additional oil, an amount equal to the annual energy needs of about 170,000 Texas households.

The project will apply technology to produce oil that until recently was technically and economically challenging to develop. Carbon dioxide injection is expected to begin before year’s end. This first phase could lead to future development phases, which could significantly increase oil recovery from the field.

“ExxonMobil’s investment in the field is part of an ongoing effort to find, develop, and produce more domestic supplies of oil and gas to meet the country’s growing energy needs,” said Lyndal Trout, senior field superintendent, western Texas.
