Numerical Investigation of Solvent and Thermal Hybrid Processes for Thin Heavy Oil Reservoirs
(Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research, University of Regina, 2012-12)
Western Canada has the second largest oil resources in the world. Over 90% is heavy oil and bitumen. Vapour Extraction (VAPEX), similar to Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) but using solvent to reduce the oil ...
Coupling of Hydrocarbon Solvents of Hot Water for Enhanced Heavy Oil Recovery
(Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research, University of Regina, 2012-12-20)
Abundant heavy oil reserves and increasing demands for energy have encouraged more and more interest in the exploitation of heavy oil. The recovery of heavy oil is challenging due to its high viscosity. The thermal ...
