Session 3: HO - Enhanced Heavy Oil Recovery Processes

Many heavy oil and bitumen resources are not prime candidates for SAGD recovery. This session focuses on alternative recovery processes that can be used in shallow reservoirs, or reservoirs that have some initial mobility of the heavy oil. The presentation on horizontal well CSS looks at a case study where steam injection is tried in a low pressure environment. Two papers on Cold Solvent and nano-particle stabilized solvent investigate innovative ways to reduce oil viscosity through the use of solvent instead of heat. The other presentations focus on water and chemical-based heavy oil recovery at various scales, from a field heavy oil waterflood to investigations of surfactant and polymer flooding at the laboratory or pore scale. The talks in this session show data and innovative ways to look at new ways to produce heavy oil effectively.
