Optimization of steam/solvent injection methods: Application of hybrid techniques with improved algorithm configurationDownload
Heavy oil and bitumen recovery processes need to be optimized in order to increase the recovery, reduce costs, and minimize the environment impact. Most of the optimization studies published in petroleum engineering literature focus on a few design parameters by combining the elements of...
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...
