Paper presented at the Canadian International Petroleum Conference, June 16–18, 2009
Paper Number: PETSOC-2009-130
... the recovery of heavy oil reserves, such as those of Western Canada, has not been given enough attention due to immiscible nature of the mixture of CO 2 and these heavy oil resources. Many heavy oil reservoirs in Western Canada have been under waterflooding where oil is produced at very high water-oilratios...
