RMOTC resides within the Naval Petroleum Reserve No. 3 (NPR-3), the Teapot Dome Oil Field. The field test site is a 10,000 acre operating oil field offering a full complement of associated facilities and equipment on-site. There are approximately 1,200 well bores and approximately 600 producing wells, in nine producing reservoirs ranging in depth from 500 ft. to 5000 ft. Existing producing wells, non-producing wells, or sites for drilling new wells are all available to field test partners.

The innovations tested by RMOTC enhance our energy security, scientific discovery, economic competitiveness, quality of life, and create new jobs in communities across the United States. RMOTC supports President Obama’s vision for our nation’s transition to a clean energy economy and his call for 80 percent of America’s electricity to come from clean sources by 2035.
