Effects of Waterflooding, Solvent Injection, and Solvent Convective Dispersion on Vapour Extraction (VAPEX) Heavy Oil Recovery
(Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research, University of Regina, 2012-04)
In this study, the detailed effects of waterflooding and solvent injection on vapour extraction (VAPEX) heavy oil recovery are studied by using a visual rectangular sandpacked high-pressure VAPEX physical model with a ...
Oil Recovery Mechanisms and Asphaltene Precipitation Phenomenon in CO2 Flooding Processes
(Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research, University of Regina, 2012-12-17)
In this thesis, the mutual interactions between a light crude oil and CO2 at the reservoir temperature were experimentally studied. The oil recovery mechanisms and asphaltene precipitation phenomenon in tight sandstone ...
Utilization of co2 for pressure maintenance and improving oil recovery in heavy oil reservoirs.
(Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research, University of Regina, 2012-07)
Tremendous resources of heavy oil are located in Western Canada, i.e., Alberta and Saskatchewan, most of which are contained in thin payzones. Thermal-based techniques have conventionally been utilized to enhance heavy ...
Automatic History Match and Upscaling Study of Vapex Process and Its Uncertainty Analysis
(Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research, University of Regina, 2012-09)
Vapour Extraction (VAPEX) is a process to recover heavy oil by injecting vapourized solvent into a reservoir. In order to ensure successful commercial application of a VAPEX process, reliable prediction of VAPEX performance ...
