...V.. Mohan; P.. Neogi; B.. Bai Summary The dynamics of a process in which a solvent in the form of a vapor or gas is introduced in a heavy‐oil reservoir is considered. The process is called the solvent vaporextraction process (VAPEX). When the vapor dissolves in the oil, it reduces its viscosity...

... to that obtained by heating in some cases. In this paper, the vapor extraction (VAPEX) process is experimentally investigated to examine the effect of injecting different solvents and drainage heights on the heavy oil recovery. For this purpose, two large visual rectangular sand-packed VAPEX models...
