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 ...
Phase Behaviour and Mass Transfer of Solvent(s)-CO2-Heavy Oil Systems Under Reservoir Conditions
(Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research, University of Regina, 2013-05)
CO2 has been found to be an efficient agent for recovering heavy oil resources worldwide through an immiscible displacement process. One major disadvantage of CO2 immiscible process is the limited solubility of CO2 in ...
