Thermal Recovery of Oil and Bitumen Roger M. Butler

April 19, 2013 - Reducing fresh water use and enhancing oil recovery in oil sands development are among five new pilot projects supported by Alberta's The project is designed to develop the bitumen in a reservoir that is too viscous for conventional production, but does not require as much heat as most current thermal projects. Technology in the recovery of such reserves is advancing rapidly and suddenly this huge country with produced oil rates and reduced production costs. Improving Energy Efficiency in Thermal Oil Recovery Surface FacilitiesN.M. A summary report of the study, conducted by Jacobs Consultancy, was publicly released on May 16, 2012 and provides insight for sustainable oil sands development in Alberta. Viscosity is a major obstacle in the recovery of low API gravity oil resources from heavy oil and bitumen reservoirs. Before we delve into various environmental issues including the social impact of the oil sands development, it is important to understand the properties of oil sands and how bitumen is recovered using different technologies. Zones too thin for traditional thermal recovery. Solid tar sand bitumen is mined and liquified in surface plants. STEAM ASSISTED GRAVITY DRAINGE (SAGD) The most promising thermal recovery technology is the Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) process. Covering the spectrum, Speight explains the current methods of recovery for heavy oil and tar sand bitumen technology, broken down by thermal and non-thermal methods. Improving Energy Efficiency in Thermal Oil Recovery. With some experts predicting peak oil as early as 2030, there is more and more interest in so called "unconventional resources" such as heavy oil and bitumen. There has been an increase in the exploration of unconventional crude oils, which almost equal global conventional oil reserves - from bitumen through to heavy oils. In this article, I will look briefly at what the oil sands are, how Heat, pressure, and the activity of bacteria transformed the carbohydrates into hydrocarbons, and crude oil was formed. The pilot will use three parallel horizontal wells with electrical cables to conduct heat throughout the targeted bitumen formation. Kerogen in oil shale is a solid that is either The ultra-heavy oils are recovered in situ by heat injection, mostly as steam.
