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 ...
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 ...
