This is the second profile log run on this horizontal injection well. The first Injection Profile was run by a competitor while the well was on water injection and the results are not available.

Injecting and shut-in temperatures indicate fluid movement through the horizontal, open hole completion out to a major loss at approximately 6130 feet (MD). We have no evidence of any other losses in the open hole section. However, we must point out that we do not believe either the one hour shut-in or two hour shut-in temperatures to be true decay recordings. Flowmeter plots (not included in this web site) clearly show that CO2 is still expanding from the tubing, into the open hole, up to 3 hours after shut-in. The temperatures labeled as shut-in temperatures are actually injecting temperature passes at declining injection rates. This will mask any small storage's.
Injecting and shut-in temperature pass indicate possible communication out the end of the horizontal section. This call is based on only a .25 degree change at the end of the horizontal section. This minor change in temperature could also be caused by a rising water level in the horizontal wellbore.
Capacitance logs indicate a CO2 / Water interface at approximately 6210 - 6200 feet (MD) while the well is on injection. The one hour shut-in pass shows the interface to have moved in to approximately 6140 feet (MD). The two hour shut-in pass indicates water through out the entire open hole section. Please remember that we were not running centalizers and that these readings do not prove the wellbore to be full of water, but that there is some amount of water in all of the open hole section.
The 2.25" spinner did not operate consistently. There was a substantial amount of a powder like substance along with a piece of outer armor from an e-line trapped in the flowmeter upon retrieving the tool.
