... the surface. The process operates in a gravity stabilised manner by restricting drainage to a narrow mobile zone. This causes the flow of mobilised fluids to enter directly into the exposed section of a horizontal production well. The process can be operated on primary production, as a new technology...

The methods were ranked based on a set of criteria including logistics and engineering challenges of water treatment and processing in the arctic, environmental regulations, costs of installation, operations and maintenance. We conclude that surface discharge by use of ground sprinklers is not...

... with steam from the early period of a SAGD operation. This is because most of the injected gas gathers at the upper part of the leading edge of the steam chamber and prevents the growth of steam chamber there, which results in a reduction of ultimate oil recovery. However, if the gas injection is...

... thin (3–7 meters of pay) and often in communication with an underlying water zone. Primary recovery in these reservoirs typically amounts to less than 10% of the initial oil in place (IOIP). Cyclic steam stimulation and steam flooding operations using vertical wells have proven uneconomic in these...

... economically feasible and volumes were small enough, it was common practice to flare the sour gas. Now however, regulations require sulphur separation in any processing operations that produce more than one tonne of sulphur per day. This still leaves 50 or more operations where the daily production of sulphur...
