An Improved Vapour Solvent Injection Technique for Enhanced Heavy Oil Recovery
(Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research, University of Regina, 2013-07)
There are tremendous heavy oil and bitumen resources in Canada, and most of them are located in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin. Thermal-based recovery techniques, such as steam flooding, cyclic steam stimulation ...
Applicability of Solvent-Assisted Polymer Flooding to Improve Heavy Oil Recovery
(Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research, University of Regina, 2013-03)
Recently, one of the non-thermal oil recovery techniques, polymer flooding, has shown its potential for improving heavy oil recovery. This study investigated the potential of combining solvent-based processes and polymer ...
