Anaerobic biodegradation of hydrocarbons in different oil sands tailings ponds: key microbial players and main activation pathway of hydrocarbon biodegradationDownload
Anaerobic biodegradation of hydrocarbons is an important process in oil sands tailings ponds, which directly affects consolidation of tailings and extent of greenhouse gas emissions from tailings ponds. Since tailings ponds from different operators differ due to extraction process, age of...
Adsorption behavior of nitrogen, argon and oxygen on silver exchanged titanosilicate (Ag-ETS-10) were studied in this work. A low temperature gas chromatographic determination of relatively low concentration argon (<1%) was developed, which was applied to evaluate the production of argon free...
This report investigates the relationship between certain hydrocarbons that are present naturally, or could be introduced due to surface oil sands mining and upgrading activities, and their potential bioaccumulation and tainting of the commercial fishery in the Athabasca River. This includes...
Commonly-used cubic equations of state (EOS) over predict the bubble point pressures (BPPs) for binary long-chain n-alkane + aromatic mixtures and frequently predict the incorrect phase diagram type. In this work, BPPs for 15 representative n-alkane + aromatic hydrocarbon binary mixtures were...
Evaluating Wettability and Imbibition Oil Recovery of the Core Plugs and Crushed Rock Samples from the Duvernay FormationDownload
Unconventional sources have become the leading sources of hydrocarbons in North America. These unconventional resources with low porosity and ultra-low permeability can produce hydrocarbon at profitable rates from a hydraulically fractured horizontal well. However, rock-fluid properties need to...
This study investigates the extraction of hydrocarbons from oil sand using supercritical carbon dioxide (SC CO2). Experiments were carried out on three different types of oil sands. After some preliminary experiments, the feasibility of extracting hydrocarbons from oil sands by SC CO2 was...
Heavy Oil/Bitumen Recovery by Alternate Injection of Steam and Solvent (Hydrocarbon and CO2) in Fractured Carbonates and OilsandsDownload
The world energy demand is constantly increasing and fossil fuels are still by far the main energy resource that supplies the world energy consumption market, therefore increasing oil recovery from all types of reservoirs is an important matter. The burning of fossil fuels for energy purposes, on...
