Paper presented at the SPE Latin America and Caribbean Petroleum Engineering Conference, May 21–23, 2014
Paper Number: SPE-169252-MS
... Abstract Foamy oil behavior contributes significantly to the anomalously high primary recovery of heavy oils observed in the Orinoco Belt, Venezuela. Nowadays, disappearance of this phenomenon results in a rapid increase in the produced GOR and a fast decline in oil production when...

... Abstract Traditionally, in Orinoco Belt Cerro Negro area, Venezuela, beam, progressive cavity and electrical submersible pumps have been used for bitumen extraction. In order to facilitate bitumen transportation down hole to surface, diluent is injected to decrease formation viscosities which...

... in Corpoven's Arecuna Field, Hamaca Area in the Orinoco Belt. This was done by installing a multiphase pump with a capacity of 53.5 MSTBD equivalent (5.5 MSTBD of liquid and 48 MSTBD equivalent of gas), an intake pressure of 30 psi, and a maximum discharge pressure of 700 psi (a pressure differential of 670 psi...

... to exploit the heavy oil reserves more efficiently and economically. In this paper, the results of a pilot test using an electrical submergible pump to produce extra-heavy oil (9.2 API) in the Orinoco Belt, Eastern Venezuela, are presented. The maximum production rate obtained was 1,170 BOPD (186 M3/D...
