The spontaneous displacement of a fluid in another immiscible one on a solid surface is essential for many technical applications, such as painting, detergency, bitumen extraction and enhancing oil recovery. This project was motivated by exploring a process of high viscosity bitumen displaced by...
CO2-Responsive Surfactants for Enhancing Heavy Oil Recovery: from Fundamentals to Bench-Scale Demonstrations in Canadian Oil Sands ExtractionDownload
Interfacial properties at the oil-water interface are of key importance to various operations in the petroleum industry, especially in the aqueous-based heavy oil recovery process. However, different operation stages often require different interfacial properties, which could be conflicted with...
Interfacially Active Magnetic Nanoparticles for Efficient Oil/Water Separation from Oil-in-Water or Water-in-Oil EmulsionsDownload
The emulsions, either oil-in-water (O/W) or water-in-oil (W/O) emulsions, are inevitably formed during the industrial production processes and the daily household activities. The O/W emulsions such as crude oil-in-water emulsions or oily wastewaters generated from the industrial fields, oil...
Study of biodiesel-assisted ambient aqueous bitumen extraction (BA3BE) for hydrocarbon production from mineable oil sandsDownload
Surface mining followed by Clark’s hot water bitumen extraction (HWBE) process has been employed in the current mineable oil sands industry for massive bitumen production. This method is faced with numerous challenges such as high energy consumption, limited bitumen quality, production from...
