... scale experiments. Experimental evidence from laboratory scale tests are very promising and this novel technique can play an important role in the exploitation of huge resources of heavy oil and bitumen. Accurate analytical and numerical modeling is essential in order to correctly interpret experimental...

... but not if nucleation originated from the bulk (homogeneous nucleation). The first interesting point in these experimental observations on heavy oils is related to the extremely low gas relative permeabilities that are proposed to describe these experiments(3,9,12). Kumar et al.(3) showed that gas relative...
