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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
