... Abstract Electromagnetic (EM) heating holds a large potential in heavy oil recovery since it can reduce carbon emission and avoid excessive water usage, and is applicable for water hostile reservoirs such as shale oil reservoirs. Combining solvent injection and EM heating might further reduce...

... Abstract There are abundant heavy oil deposits characterized by shallow depth, thin pay zone, low porosity, and bottom water in Western Canada. These types of reservoirs are neither suitable for thermal heavy oil recovery techniques (e.g. SAGD) nor for solvent injection (e.g. VAPEX). Coupling...
