Improving Energy Efficiency in Thermal Oil Recovery Surface FacilitiesN.M. We would have had the best oil reservoir in the world sitting right here.” As it is, the resource is heavy. The pilot will use three parallel horizontal wells with electrical cables to conduct heat throughout the targeted bitumen formation. Energy and Capital editor Keith Kohl discusses 3 oil investments that are booming from record oil prices. Improving Energy Efficiency in Thermal Oil Recovery. One of the problems is that the current extraction Some these methods include thermal recovery, as well as chemical or gas injection. Data for Regional EOR Involvement by Method Elusive. April 19, 2013 - Reducing fresh water use and enhancing oil recovery in oil sands development are among five new pilot projects supported by Alberta's The project is designed to develop the bitumen in a reservoir that is too viscous for conventional production, but does not require as much heat as most current thermal projects. Methods of Enhanced Oil Recovery. Enhanced Bitumen Recovery Using High Permeability Pathways. Image I recently got the chance to tag along with a group of journalism fellows on a tour of some oil sands production sites in Alberta, which is home to almost all of Canada's oil sands reserves.The Canadian oil They are a mix of naturally occurring bitumen, sticky oil and abrasive sand. However, the random nature of the carbonate bed, which is neither uniform nor consistent, makes economical bitumen recovery a technological challenge. Crude oil is currently a primary source of energy globally, but the decline of light oil reserves has shifted attention to large deposits of untapped heavy oil and bitumen energy resources (~70 % of the Worldâ€™s 9-13trillion barrel oil resource). Optimal's E2EOR® Ideal for High Salinity, Heavy Oil Production. Over the past year Excelsior Energy Limited has investigated various bitumen recovery mechanisms that could potentially reduce the large requirements for capital, fuel gas and process water associated with thermal recovery. In situ (in place recovery or without excavation) is currently being done using steam injection with well recovery to heat and mobilize the goo. Tertiary Recovery, Also Known As Enhanced Oil Recovery. Only 20% of the total amount of recoverable bitumen (the thick, tar-like form of petroleum) can be done through surface mining, leaving an overwhelming amount that will be extracted from In-Situ methods.
