What is Heavy Oil Recovery

Heavy oil recovery represents unique challenges and obstacles not found when producing "light oil." 

There are vast amounts of heavy oil reserves found around the world including California and Canada that become even more strategic as the preferred light oil becomes depleted. Steam Injection has been the preferred heavy oil recovery method as well as cyclic steam stimulation, steam assisted gravity drainage or SAGD.  Non-thermal methods of heavy oil recovery include cold flow with sand production, the cyclic solvent process and VAPEX.

What is Steam Injection?

Steam Injection is an "enhanced oil recovery" (EOR) technology that represents one of the most efficient methods for recovery of "trapped oil," also known as stranded oil, particularly stranded oil that is considered to be "heavy oil."

Steam Injection is the primary method of "thermal stimulation" and production of oil in most oil reservoirs. There are several different forms of the technology, with the two leading methods known as; Cyclic Steam Stimulation and Steam Flooding. Both variations of Steam Injection are used to produce oil in oil reservoirs that are relatively shallow and which contain crude oils which are known to be "heavy oil." Heavy oil is "viscous" at the ambient temperatures within the native underground oil reservoir and formation.

The major oil companies, when producing oil in "primary recovery" typically produce and recover the "easy oil" representing as little as 10% of the oil reservoir's "original oil in place." After recovering the easy oil, it is necessary to go into "secondary recovery" which is also referred to as enhanced oil recovery or tertiary recovery. These secondary recovery methods are expensive and sometimes only producing marginal amounts of oil. Therefore, some oil companies simply choose to plug and abandon the well and move on to the next project after only recovering as little as 10% of the oil in the reservoir leaving behind what is referred to as "trapped oil."

Trapped oil - in reservoirs where enhanced oil recovery technologies are deployed to enable the trapped oil to flow, or drain from the host rock in the underground reservoir, to a production well. Enhanced oil recovery technologies produce the otherwise trapped oil from the otherwise depleted reservoir.
