Abstract: Oilsands operators are under constant pressure to innovate and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In Situ operators use a significant amount of natural gas and water to generate steam as part of the recovery process and continually strive to reduce their carbon footprint. Injecting solvents as a partial or complete replacement for steam is gaining traction within the industry as a technology that could greatly reduce the water and energy intensity of the bitumen recovery process. Wide adoption of incorporating solvents and steam additives into the SAGD or CSS process would allow the oilsands industry to continue to grow under […]
