Steam-Solvent Coinjection for Bitumen Recovery under Reservoir Heterogeneity with Consideration of Water Solubility in OilDownload
The main objective of this research is to determine if expanding solvent-steam assisted gravity drainage (ES-SAGD), wherein a small quantity of a condensable solvent is coinjected with steam, can be a better alternative to SAGD in highly heterogeneous formations. Specifically, three previously...
Experimental results in the literature show that the water solubility in the oleic (L) phase can be high at reservoir conditions in thermal oil recovery processes; e.g., 24 mol% in the water/n-eicosane binary system at 41 bars and 523 K. It becomes even more significant as the L phase becomes...
