Optimal Application Conditions for Variable Temperature Solvent Injection into Sands and Carbonates for Heavy-Oil and Bitumen RecoveryDownload
Steam injection is the most common technique in heavy-oil/bitumen recovery. However, the emission of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, its water requirements, and excessive operational cost associated entail finding alternative solutions. One approach is combining steam and solvent injection...
Since its invention, steam assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) demonstrated to be a viable technology to recover heavy oil and bitumen from oil sands. However, the field experience over the last two decades indicated that, oil recovery factor is below the expected values determined from the scaled...
