... reserves in the province of Alberta and the amount of exploratory drilling. Development drilling conducted for deliverability purposes does not substantially add to the reserve picture. However, exploratory drilling may result in large reserve additions. Future reserve additions translate into gas supply...

... Abstract Over 20 billion barrels of oil are contained in the marginal heavy oil reservoirs of Saskatchewan and Alberta. These marginal reservoirs have high porosity (∼30%). high permeability (1–5 darcies), and the oil viscosity ranges between 1000 to 12000 cp; but these reservoirs are also...

...". The majority of oil wells, especially in the more mature North American fields produce more water than they do oil. In western Canada, the average water oil ratio (WOR) for all the conventional production is at nearly six cubic meters of water per cubic meter of oil. The average WOR in Alberta has...

... Abstract Horizontal wells have been used successfully in Canada to recover oil from marginal heavy oil reservoirs in Saskatchewan and Alberta. These reservoirs are often poorly consolidated; recovery operations in these reservoirs are, therefore, usually susceptible to sand production. A...

.... Introduction The oil and gas (O & G) industry currently has a variety of sour crude oil and gas wells in production in the province of Alberta. Elemental sulphur recovery units in large plants remove much of the sour component, hydrogen sulphide (H 2 S). Historically, where recovering the sulphur was not...
