Abstract The oil fields of the Big Horn Basin are still producing their share of oil. These days, though, it takes a lot of coaxing from expensive secondary and tertiary recovery methods, but oil companies report the Big Horn is still economical. The main thrust of the article is to discuss various methods oil companies are currently using to maintain production in a diminishing returns environment. By converting old production wells to injection wells and setting up waterflood recovery techniques, the life of the Big Horn Basin may continue for some time.
