... Abstract One of the big issues for the development of extra heavy crude oil is transportation from the well head to the refinery or shipping facility. Conventionally, dilution is applied to reduce density and viscosity and diluted heavy oil is transported through pipelines. However, if diluent...

The Pelican Lake field in Canada, a giant with 6.4 billion barrels of oil in place, contains a 12–14 API oil with a viscosity that varies between 800 and 80,000 cp at reservoir conditions. In spite of this high...
