Thermal Recovery of Oil and Bitumen Roger M. Butler
This is a great opportunity for a Reservoir Engineer to consult, provide and be an integral part of the thermal recovery of heavy oil and/or bitumen for our client. One of the problems is that the current extraction Some these methods include thermal recovery, as well as chemical or gas injection. Improving Energy Efficiency in Thermal Oil Recovery. Ivanhoe Energy's goals for the initial wells in Pungarayacu were to add to its preliminary understanding of the reservoir, to carry out thermal recovery tests, and to extract heavy oil for characterization and upgrading tests using its proprietary HTL upgrading process. Corrosion Resistant Thermal Barrier Coating Materials. Loading a truck, it will take 2 to 4 shovel Taking just those that relate to oil sand production roughly 70% plan on using thermal methods to recover deeper oil (mainly SAGD, though there are small amounts of THAI, cyclic steam and electrothermal). The steam injection, the SAGD or cyclic steam injection have proved that these increase the oil recovery, and the thermal methods can drop the bitumen viscosity on the low values.

Thermal Projects Wabiskaw - Recognized the potential for cost-effective thermal recovery of a 2.0 billion barrel bitumen deposit in the Grand Rapids Formation within the Woodenhouse area. Energy and Capital editor Keith Kohl discusses 3 oil investments that are booming from record oil prices. Image source:US EIA of oil sand assets in Alberta. This does not appear to be pie in the sky, as they The heat generated in the reservoir reduces the viscosity of the heavy oil, allowing it to drain into a second, horizontal well from where it rises to the surface.

These fragments (with waste rock largely removed) are then mixed with hot water and pumped to large tanks at the primary Upgrader, where the sand, water and bitumen are separated. Improving Energy Efficiency in Thermal Oil Recovery Surface FacilitiesN.M. Only 20% of the total amount of recoverable bitumen (the thick, tar-like form of petroleum) can be done through surface mining, leaving an overwhelming amount that will be extracted from In-Situ methods. This apparently paradoxical situation is occurring because supplies of conventional crude oil have peaked while growing economies in South America have increased demand for refined fuel. (How much oil is lost in the burning process? The Essential oil sands of Alberta North america Incorporate bitumen reserves Comparable in Sizing Towards the Essential oil fields in Saudi Arabia. Ivanhoe Energy The crude gravity is similar to Athabasca bitumen, at approximately 8° API, however other characteristics are quite different and present specific upgrading challenges. Is the THAI™ system (below) or any other process that comes along for economically recovering heavy oil and bitumen the answer to our dependence on oil for the majority of our transportation fuels?
