Paper Number: PETSOC-2009-004
... by two different mechanisms: one was expansion of the steam chamber and the other was drainage of oil from the layer above the steam chamber. Many unexpected performances were the result of the combination of these two recovery mechanisms. Introduction Three pairs of SAGD wells began production in April...

... gravity drainage processes is very important for the creation and growth of the steam chamber. The steam chamber is the main vehicle for transmitting heat to the cool oil sands at its edges and thus its size, really surface area, is a direct control on the amount of oil produced. In each of the cases...

... of oil production in a SAGD process. Their first goal, however, was to study the feasibility of SAGD and to provide a mathematical proof for expanding SAGD in more sites. After his original theory, Butler tried to modify the theory in steps to overcome some shortcomings such as (a) steam chamber...

In field practice, the continued existence of the liquid pool is monitored by examining the temperature difference, called the interwell...
