Interesting but it would be nice to also know what the reserves are.

If you mean ready reserves (pumped but in storage) I have only found it at a national level.

Here is a link to infield reserves by state.
http://tonto.eia.doe.gov/dnav/pet/pe...01_mmbbl_a.htm

For individual field reserves it is really hard to track down as every state tracks it differently (or not at all). California has the most detailed public info that is easily accessible. One state (might have been Ohio), requires you to physically pick up the data on CD.

Here is the California 1997 field data
ftp://ftp.consrv.ca.gov/pub/oil/annu...7/9704prod.pdf

If every state did this my acquisition work would be done. I think I have partial data for another 10 states and no data for like 20 others.


edit. I did find state motor gasoline stocks

Refinery info.

Was hoping for oil field data. No real information on that but they seem to have quite a few refinery locations in KML format.

Default Regarding Reserves

Where are the reserve oil located?

Underground facilities?

Probably above ground massive tanks. Was just looking over google maps for O'Hare airport, and there are 8 tanks I conservatively estimate capacity at 10,000,000 liters of Jet fuel each.

http://maps.google.com/maps?q=ord&ie...05681&t=h&z=18

I expect the 49th Armored or one of the Air Force Units stationed at Ohare would have attempted to secure these. A smaller number of storage tanks were on the former military side of the airport but I believe those were removed after the cold war ended.

Yep
Something like this I'd say....



I'd say it's pretty much a given for such a valuable resource in a warzone...

From what i've heard those old oil fields haven't been used in almost half a century, and where considered 'dry' wells. But with the knowledge we have now, wells don't go dry permenantly. they've reopened old dry wells, and found that they're good enough to start pumping again... that's why i asked about the old European well heads...

I have thought about researching all fields in Europe, but given the difficulty in finding US data it is on the back burner.

Nate you are correct that old fields can be tapped again. Statistically you could assume that quite a few older "Dry" fields would be economically viable in T2k Europe. Personally I am amazed at the sheer number of wells in the US. Admittedly a majority produce less than 15 barrels a day but the sheer number means that some would survive, and that parts could be scavenged to continue operation. I honestly have no idea is a similar situation exists in Europe as virtually all my resource research has been focused on Morrow Project recovery.

Very much so... in our old T2k American Campaign we had those oil fields brougth back on line, and construction of refineries became top priority of both CivGov and MilGov... Of course sabotage (or Monkey warfare) was happening all the time. Nothing to get someone killed, just setbacks in how quickly they could get facilities online.

If i can get a new campaign going, the "Progressive Allaince for a New America" would be the biggest hurdle in getting oil refineries built...

I use to have a map of europe that was from the 1950s that showed where these old oil fields where located. But i've not seen said map in almost 10 years... It showed all of the natural resources of Europe, and all of the (then) Soviet Union. It made me wonder WHY the Soviet Union was having such a problem with building it's ecconomy with the massive amounts of natural resources at their disposal.

There is an excellent Challenge Mag mini module called Pennsylvania Crude which is about private salvage groups opening up old, capped well heads and pumping as much crude as their tanker trucks can carry. The mini module contains some basic guidelines about how it is done and how much crude can be pumped from an old well head in a given amount of time.

I was thinking of natural reserve. In 2008, the US oil reserve is estimated to be 8 years (not sure). What were these reserve in the mid-1990's and is there a way to find them state by state.

This link has proved reserves by state

http://tonto.eia.doe.gov/dnav/pet/pe...01_mmbbl_a.htm

to get 1997 you will have to look at each state individually though.

I don't trust the 8 year number. That is probably if we had zero imports and did zero exploration. Even if that was the case 8 still seems low and we always have shale.

Thanks. The natural reserve are never more than indicative. You can have a 8 years reserve in 1990 and still get 8 year reserve 20 years later. As you said: import, exploration...

In my game, most state still producing oil have seen a fair increase in term of reserve. The twilight war result in a dramatic drop in oil consumption and reserves rise consequently.

I'm sure we have spoken about this before and I recall digging up some press about it:

http://www.observer-reporter.com/OR/...6-15-Old-Wells

http://www.mindfully.org/Energy/2008...-PA19feb08.htm

I remember being quite pleased about "small oil" as opposed to the Seven Sisters. It also strikes me as being very T2K! I think it came up while talking about refining capacity post T2K - I think I made the point that I couldn't see even the smallest modern oil refinery being brought back online (even if you could find the parts and staff to bring it back up to spec) because they are so huge that simply "charging" the system with crude would be beyond the capacity of T2K without huge investment across the board (the smallest US refinery is at Bradford, Pa - conveniently close to the location of "pennsylvania Crude" with 10,000 bbl per day capacity).

Default Kansas Oil Production

While my system is chugging away on determining the LAT/LONG location for Kansas oilfields I thought I would post some information which surprised me.

There are over 50,000 wells in over 5,000 productive fields in Kansas. Admittedly quite a few of these are stripper wells (producing less than 500 barrels per year), but once again the sheer numbers would almost guarantee that some would be operating in T2k.

Great Information found here.
