Effect of Volume Translation on Two-Phase Equilibrium Calculations for Hydrocarbon Mixtures in a Confined SpaceDownload
Oil production from tight/shale reservoirs has drawn an increasing attention over the past decades. One of the essential mechanisms affecting the oil/gas production is the phase behavior of the reservoir fluids in the confined nanopores inside the tight/shale reservoirs. Many theoretical works...
In this work, the phase behavior of Athabasca bitumen + CO2 and Maya crude oil + CO2 is briefed. A literature review is presented on the previous research works (mostly experimental studies) done on CO2 + heavy oil and similar mixtures. Important aspects of phase behavior such as type of phase...
Investigating Light Solvent Aided Process in Cold Lake Oil-Sand Reservoir Using Experimental and Numerical ApproachesDownload
Steam assisted- gravity drainage (SAGD) is the main in-situ bitumen recovery process in which saturated steam is injected into the bitumen zone. However, it has some drawbacks, which include high-energy consumption and significant environmental concerns. Solvent Aided Process (SAP) is a method...
Phase Behavior and Thermophysical Properties of Athabasca Bitumen and Athabasca Bitumen + Toluene Mixtures in Near-critical WaterDownload
The phase behavior and thermophysical properties of heavy hydrocarbons + water at elevated temperatures underpins development and implementation of coordinated production and refining processes, where for example, bitumen is produced by a SAGD method (steam assisted gravity drainage) and the...
Shale oil/gas resources are becoming an increasingly important energy resource. Compared to conventional reservoirs, shale generally consists of a large proportion of organic matters. Organic matter is mainly comprised of kerogen, within which a significant amount of nanopores may reside. Due to...
This thesis experimentally investigates the phase-change behavior of hydrocarbons in various categories of the porous system. The experimental journey was initiated by studying the boiling behavior of single-component hydrocarbon liquids (heptane and decane) and water in silica-glass Hele-Shaw...
Phase behavior of carbon dioxide/water (CO2/H2O) binary mixtures plays an important role in various CO2-based industry processes, including CO2 injection for enhanced oil recovery and CO2 storage in saline aquifers. Engineering design of such processes requires an appropriate thermodynamic model...
