  • Technology for heavy oil and bitumen recovery with low water cut

    The core of the technology resides in the reduction of oil viscosity and the respective production rate increase under the condition of oil layer heating. It is known, for example, that the heating of the layer with heavy oil up to 100°C theoretically leads to a 15 to 20 times production rate increase. The technology works on the principle of controlled automated continuous pumping of highly ...

  • Microbial technology applications in wellbore stimulation and oil recovery enhancement: a review

    The different microbial technologies to enhance oil recovery have not yet been proven for two main reasons. Firstly, most microbial enhanced oil recovery (MEOR) field trials lack structured research methodology. Secondly, it is difficult to interpret MEOR tests. In order to correlate qualitatively the effects on oil recovery with the nutrient injections, other variables should be kept constant ...

  • Ivey-sol technology has potential to increase oil recovery of oil-sands waste by 15-25 percent

    Alberta’s oil sands are comprised of one of the world's largest sources of bitumen, containing an estimated 1.6 trillion barrels. About two tonnes of oil sands must be dug up and processed to produce one barrel of oil. Oil sands recovery processes include extraction and separation systems to remove bitumen from sand and water. Separating the oil from the sand is difficult and costly, and getting ...

  • UV disinfection for enhanced oil recovery and other oilfield applications

    One of the biggest challenges facing oil companies today is how to extract more oil from the discoveries made in the last 40 years. Estimates vary, but approximately 66% of the discovered oil gets left in the ground. The International Energy Agency has estimated that if, in the next 20 years, this figure could be reduced to 50%, then this would increase the world's recoverable oil by 1.2 trillion ...

  • Liberating contaminants for easy recovery

    The number one challenge associated with most site remediation designs and methodologies is that 90-95 per cent of all environmental contaminants are present in an adsorbed phase onto soil and bedrock surfaces within both saturated and unsaturated zones. Contaminants, including hydrocarbons (LNAPL), chlorinates (DNAPL) and heavy metals, are sorbed onto the substrates and so have reduced mobility ...
