In the 1960s, introduction of thermal recovery technologies (application of steam technology) caused abrupt and substantial additions to reserves in fields that contain heavy oil (American Petroleum Institute (API) gravity less than . Building sustainable operations for the recovery of oil and bitumen requires leading edge facilities and continual adaptation of technologies. In situ (in place recovery or without excavation) is currently being done using steam injection with well recovery to heat and mobilize the goo. In the middle of a keynote address to an audience of geologists, seismic specialists and heavy oil executives, he paused to make a wistful appeal. Low impact energy recovery requires massive capital and a willingness to take on high level of risk. This distinguishes in situ recovery from surface mining, which requires removing topsoil and other overburden and Another common form of thermal recovery is cyclic steam stimulation (CSS). Thermal extraction is a much more environmentally friendly process than other energy extraction methods; for example, 98% of the water used by Connacher to extract their oil is recycled. 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. It describes a method of thermal bitumen recovery called wedge wells. Because of “reserve growth,” a country or a company may increase its oil reserves without tapping new areas if it can recover more oil from its known fields. I used to work on SAGD and other thermal recovery processes to recover heavy oil and bitumen from heavy oil and oil sand reservoirs in Alberta and Saskatchewan, Canada. In situ oil sands production means extracting bitumen from underground by drilling wells into the reservoir, as with conventional oil and natural gas production.
