Life Cycle of Oil and Gas Fields in the Mississippi River Delta: A Review

  2021-05-15 (or before) in MDPI - Publisher of Open Access Journals

Oil and gas (O&G) activity has been pervasive in the Mississippi River Delta (MRD).

Individual fields can last 40–60 years and most wells are in the final stages of production. Production increased rapidly reaching a peak around 1970 and then declined. Produced water lagged O&G and was generally higher during declining O&G production, making up about 70% of total liquids. Much of the wetland loss in the delta ...
