"Once developed, thermal The petroleum and natural gas company also noted it received regulatory approval to construct a two-stage bitumen recovery scheme using steam-assisted gravity drainage. 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. We would have had the best oil reservoir in the world sitting right here.” As it is, the resource is heavy. In the Athabasca region for future development. The company noted the acquisition adds an approved steam-assisted gravity drainage project to its asset portfolio, which currently includes thermal recovery projects at Seal in Peace River oil sands and at Kerrobert in southwest Saskatchewan. Slotted liners that hang on a thermal packer in 95⁄8-in. These leases include the Hangingstone, Chard, Corner and Thornbury areas which are expected to contain approximately 1.7 billion barrels of recoverable bitumen resources. Shell, for instance, is working on a "novel thermal recovery process"--embedding large electric heaters in the deposits and literally cooking the earth. Raising the temperature of the host formation reduces the oil and bitumen viscosity, and, in environmental remediation, increases vapour pressure. Loading a truck, it will take 2 to 4 shovel Taking just those that relate to oil sand production roughly 70% plan on using thermal methods to recover deeper oil (mainly SAGD, though there are small amounts of THAI, cyclic steam and electrothermal). However, the random nature of the carbonate bed, which is neither uniform nor consistent, makes economical bitumen recovery a technological challenge. Costs for recovering bitumen with in situ methods continue to decline, and new technologies are bound to reduce costs further, according to Harbir Chhina, executive vice-president enhanced oil development and new resource plays for Cenovus Energy Inc., Calgary. This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced reservoir engineer with well-developed technical knowledge of thermal recovery to join a financially stable, entrepreneurial oil sands organization with an excellent track record of success. These fragments (with waste rock largely removed) are then mixed with hot water and pumped to large tanks at the primary Upgrader, where the sand, water and bitumen are separated. There are approximately 2.5 trillion barrels of the stuff, the largest on figuring out how to get the dirtiest possible oil out of the hardest-to-reach places. The objective of this book is to present to the reader the current methods of recovery for heavy oil and tar sand bitumen technology by nonthermal and thermal methods. Thermal recovery methods, as applied in heavy oil and oil sand deposits, and in environmental remediation, have the common objective of accelerating the hydrocarbon recovery process. In the SAGD well laterals, Cenovus runs 7-in. Albertans have always known that in the northern part of their province, there are vast deposits of bitumen--black, tarlike goo that is mixed with sand, clay, water and oil. In situ (in place recovery or without excavation) is currently being done using steam injection with well recovery to heat and mobilize the goo.
