Post how to ignite fire
I have two reserviors, one is 15' thick at 500 ft (Senora) depth that gives me a sheen of oil, has no drive and another is 60 ft thick at 860 ft depth (Bartlesville) loaded with free water and oil. Water is 99% and oil comes 1%.

I want to flood Senora sand at 500 ft with Bartlesville water at 860 ft, but also want to inject air.

How can I ignite fire in cheapest way. DOE paper in 1945 injected air to make more oil. Will O2 in air cause H2S. As a last resort, can I dump oil from top in casing and drop a fire ball and turn on the air while closing the wellhead. Can I drop burning chemical that will oxydize and burn the oil then carry it in sand. I have 23 wells to produce from.

Who is an expert on this matter to advise me to light fire and sustain it. Oil in Formation does not burn by injecting air alone, since it is not hot enough.
