Oil Sands Recovery Production Technologies

Crude vs Oil Sands - Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council

Oil sands, sometimes referred to as tar sands, is a mixture of sand, clay, other minerals, water, and bitumen. The bitumen is a form of crude oil that can be separated out from the mixture. In its natural state, it is very dense and highly viscous. In order to transport the oil sands, the natural bitumen is processed or diluted.

In Situ Oil Sands | Alberta Energy Regulator

Water-Use intensity. Water use intensity refers to the amount of water used to produce one BOE. In , in situ oil sands projects used about 17.5 million cubic metres of nonsaline water (23 per cent of all water allocated for in situ oil sands projects) to produce approximately 558 million BOE—meaning that for every BOE produced, 0.20 barrels of nonsaline water was used.

U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) - Analysis

Note that worldwide oil production would have increased, even without the increase from Canada, where the inclusion of oil sands for the first time likely had a positive impact on production. Three regions showed an oil production decline, most especially the Former Soviet Union, where reserves also had a large proportional decline ( Table 5 ).

In Situ Recovery | Alberta Energy Regulator

Around 80 per cent of the oil from Alberta's oil sands is buried too deep to mine and can be recovered only by drilling wells. That's where "in situ" recovery comes in. Companies must apply and receive our approval before starting an in situ operation.. What is in situ recovery? In in situ recovery, wells are drilled to extract an extra-heavy type of oil called bitumen. Some bitumen is

Top 10 Challenges in Oil and Gas Industry - TechnologyHQ

The unconventional resources are shale gas, oil sands and coalbed methane (CBM). Although it is a convenient solution for our energy needs, the technology it involves, i.e. hydraulic fracturing, raises debates among communities and professionals about harm it makes to nature conservation and water resources. This in turn might impede its
