Description

Hybrid EOR processes are the emerging recovery technologies for heavy oil and oilsands reservoirs in recent years and have been widely applied to enhance their recovery. Hybrid Enhanced Oil Recovery Processes for Heavy Oil Reservoirs systematically introduces these technologies. As the development of heavy oil reservoirs is emphasized, the petroleum industry is faced with the challenges of selecting cost-effective and environmentally friendly recovery processes. In this book, we tackle these challenges by the introduction and investigation of a variety of hybrid EOR processes. It also addresses the application of these hybrid EOR processes in onshore and offshore heavy oil reservoirs, including theoretical, experimental and simulation approaches.

Hybrid Enhanced Oil Recovery Processes for Heavy Oil Reservoirs will be very useful for petroleum engineers, technicians, academics and students to study the hybrid EOR processes, and it will provide an excellent reference for field operations by the petroleum industry.

Key Features

  • Introduces emerging hybrid EOR processes and their technical details
  • Includes case studies to help readers understand the application potential of hybrid EOR processes from different points of view
  • Features theoretical, experimental, and simulation studies to help readers understand the advantages and challenges of each process
