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...
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...
