... gravity drainage (SAGD). While what they and other companies in the oil sands are doing is commonly described as shutting in wells, they are actually slowing the production from those wells. Some use reduced steam injections in a well pair, alternate cyclic injection among wells, or injections of gas...

... is the result of their high viscosity (greater than 10,000 cp). Therefore, thermal methods of heavy-oil recovery are used to ensure an inflow to producing wells. Among such methods are steam injection, huff ’n’ puff, and in- situ combustion. In the operator’s zone of activity, 149 heavy-oil deposits have been...

A pressure drop of up to 20 bar was observed, and fluid-level measurement in the wells and PCP performance suggested good pressure communication between the wells. Despite some early challenges, first CSS production...
