HOUSTON, May 10
-- ExxonMobil Production Co. started the first phase of a new carbon dioxide enhanced oil recovery project at Means oil field in Andrews County, Tex.

The project will involve drilling additional wells and construction of facilities at the field. The company expects CO2 injection to start by yearend. Potentially the first phase could recover as much as 5 million bbl of oil and lead to additional phases, according to ExxonMobil.

The Means San Andres was one of the earliest CO2 EOR projects in the Permain basin, with CO2 injection having started in 1983.

ExxonMobil discovered the field in the early 1930s and to date has produced more than 300 million bbl of oil from the field.
