Thermal Recovery of Oil and Bitumen Roger M. Butler
Numerical modeling of biodegradation and most importantly our “know-how” are some of the tools that we utilize at Gushor to predict fluid properties and distribution of oil quality , de-convolute oil mixtures, allocate production, and monitor thermal recovery operations for heavy oil and bitumen accumulations, among other applications for the characterization of biodegraded petroleum systems. In the 1960s, introduction of thermal recovery technologies (application of steam technology) caused abrupt and substantial additions to reserves in fields that contain heavy oil (American Petroleum Institute (API) gravity less than . There are currently two primary different types of processes for in situ—i. April 19, 2013 - Reducing fresh water use and enhancing oil recovery in oil sands development are among five new pilot projects supported by Alberta's The project is designed to develop the bitumen in a reservoir that is too viscous for conventional production, but does not require as much heat as most current thermal projects. The successful projects were Imperial Oil is proposing an alternative to thermal recovery processes to reduce direct greenhouse gas emissions from production by more than 90%. Because of “reserve growth,” a country or a company may increase its oil reserves without tapping new areas if it can recover more oil from its known fields. SAGD recovery involves drilling pairs of horizontal wells, one placed above the other in each pair. Geosolutions for Unconventional Systems & Heavy Oil Recovery. Trinidad and Tobago High Commission in Canada exploring Drilling Operations for Heavy Oil Resource. The pilot will use three parallel horizontal wells with electrical cables to conduct heat throughout the targeted bitumen formation. , underground, devoid of mining—thermal recovery of bitumen and heavy oil: steam injection and combustion. Steam is Another drilling technology being discussed is also a form of thermal recovery called cyclic steam stimulation (CSS). Alberta's Innovative Energy Technologies Program (IETP) is supporting 5 new pilot projects to reduce energy use, water use and CO2 emissions in oil sands processing as well as improving the recovery of crude oil and bitumen in reserves that were once unrecoverable. SAGD extracts bitumen from underground by drilling wells into the reservoir, as with conventional oil and natural gas production.
