Heavy Oil vs. Oil Sands Indelac Controls, Inc.

This process constitutes mining into the heavy crude where the oil can be found. Many producers have taken this opportunity to develop new technologies that allow for efficiency on the market aspect. It can be said that when the market becomes stable there is a high potential for heavy oil assets to generate a surplus of cash flow for many years.

Upgrading Oil Sands and Heavy Oil - Natural

Upgrading oil sands and heavy oil is an essential part of oil sands development as it adds tremendous value to the raw resource. It allows it to be further processed into fuels and lubricants at existing refineries, and used as feedstock in petrochemical plants — most of which are not engineered to handle these heavy feedstock.

What Are the Oil Sands Canada's Oil Sands Facts ...

Oil sands are a mixture of sand, water and bitumen (oil that is too heavy or thick to flow on its own). Bitumen is so thick that at room temperature it acts much like cold molasses. For that reason, this resource is sometimes called “tar sands,” but that term is incorrect because bitumen and tar (asphalt) are different compounds.

Heavy oil - PetroWiki

19-01-2016  Heavy oil is defined as liquid petroleum of less than 20°API gravity or more than 200 cp viscosity at reservoir conditions. No explicit differentiation is made between heavy oil and oil sands (tar sands), although the criteria of less than 12°API gravity and greater than 10,000 cp are sometimes used to define oil sands.

Cold heavy oil production with sand - PetroWiki

18-01-2016  Summary of CHOPS technology. There are several important facts about this heavy oil production method: In UCSS reservoirs with good solution-gas quantities, no cohesion, and viscous oil, sand influx is initiated and sustained to take advantage of huge increases (3-fold to 20-fold) in "primary" production rate, as compared with cold production with sand exclusion.

Athabasca oil sands - Wikipedia

The Athabasca oil sands, also known as the Athabasca tar sands, are large deposits of bitumen or extremely heavy crude oil, located in northeastern Alberta, Canada – roughly centred on the boomtown of Fort McMurray.These oil sands, hosted primarily in the McMurray Formation, consist of a mixture of crude bitumen (a semi-solid rock-like form of crude oil), silica sand, clay minerals, and water.

Oil sands 101 Alberta.ca

24-04-2020  Heavy oil is more viscous than conventional oil but less viscous than bitumen. By introducing sand into the well and producing oil and sand together, the higher viscosity is mitigated by the increased permeability of the deposits. The sand essentially creates wormholes through which the bitumen can flow more easily.

Bitumen Upgrading Explained Oil Sands

Bitumen produced from the oil sands would be too heavy and too sour for a simple refinery. In order for bitumen to be sold to a simple refinery, it must first be upgraded into a lighter crude oil. More complex refineries, commonly referred to as high-conversion refineries, have the ability to process heavier feedstock, with higher concentrations of sulphur and nitrogen.
