Heavy Oil Production - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

The temperature dependence of heavy oil sands was measured by Nur et al. (1984) and Kato et al. (2008) under confining pressure. ... SAGD was developed in the 1980s by the Alberta Oil Sands Technology and Research Authority (Alberta Crown Corporation). SAGD combined with directional drilling technology made this operation economical in the mid ...

Tar Sand - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Tar sands, also variously called oil sands or bituminous sands, are loose-to-consolidated sandstone or a porous carbonate rock, impregnated with bitumen, a high boiling asphaltic material with an extremely high viscosity that is immobile under reservoir conditions and vastly different from conventional crude oil (Meyer and Attanasi, 2003; Speight, 2008,
