Several sand control techniques have been used in SAGD wells in Western Canada. For most projects, slotted liners have been the sand control of choice for its economics, ease of use, and acceptable performance. Careful design of the slot geometry is crucial to maintaining...
A Set of Graphical Design criteria for Slotted Liners in SteamAssisted Gravity Drainage Production WellsDownload
Slotted liners have been widely used in steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) wells owing to their low cost and superior mechanical integrity. Multiple factors affect the performance of slotted liners, such as particle size distribution (PSD) of formation sands, aperture size, slot density,...
Physics-based large-scale reservoir models are routinely employed in the prediction of the SAGD (Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage) process under different operation situations. However, due to the uncertainty of the reservoir and the limitations of the commercial reservoir simulators, the...
In McMurray Formation, steam assisted gravity drainage is used as the primary in-situ recovery technique to recover oil sands. Different geological reservoir settings and long horizontal wells impose limitations and operational challenges on the implementation of steam-assisted gravity drainage...
Interfacial activity of SAGD PW endogenous surfactants, humic acids (HAs), and their interaction dynamics with naphtha-diluted Alberta oil sand bitumen (AOSB) present in model SAGD produced water has been addressed in the first part of this PhD thesis. Dynamic interfacial tension σ(t) between oil...
An Experimental and Numerical Study on Complex Behaviour of Cement Paste under SAGD Operating ConditionsDownload
During the exploration stage for oil sands mining or in situ thermal projects, many wells are drilled to recover core for resource assessment: these wells are referred to as stratigraphic wells. These stratigraphic wells are subsequently plugged with either thermal or non-thermal quality cement...
Slotted liners are widely used in steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) wells to control sand production and sustain wellbore productivity. The slotted liner can provide desirable performance when appropriately designed. A literature review indicates a limited number of studies that offer design...
Heavy oils and extra heavy oils in Alberta that are currently extracted through thermal recovery primarily employ Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD). Sand control devices (SCDs) such as Slotted Liners (SLs) and Wire Wrap Screens (WWSs) have been used extensively in wells producing from...
Different models have been proposed to describe two- and three-phase flow at the edge of a steam chamber developed during a SAGD process. However, two-dimensional scaled SAGD experiments and recent micro model visualizations demonstrate that steam-condensate is primarily in the form of...
Analytical Solution for SAGD with Consideration of Temperature Variation along the Edge of a Steam ChamberDownload
Steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) is a widely-used method for heavy-oil and bitumen recovery. Analytical models were presented in the literature for bitumen-production rate and steam-to-oil ratio (SOR) for SAGD. They often overestimate bitumen-production rate substantially. Various...
