Description

The purpose of Cenovus’ AIDROH (Air Injection and Displacement for Recovery from Oil Horizontal) project is to explore the viability of using horizontal wells to recover bitumen in the Kirby Wabiskaw K-3 Pool that has been passively heated by combustion in the overlying gas zone. The project is a...

Description

Reports on a cyclic solvent process (CSP) experimental pilot project at Cold Lake in the Clearwater formation. CSP is a non-thermal, in-situ bitumen recovery process that utilizes injected solvent to reduce the viscosity of the bitumen, enabling its production from wells drilled for that purpose....

Description

EnCana’s objective in this project was to re-pressure the top gas zones in sections 11 through 16-76-6W4M, to minimize the differential pressure primarily between the steam zone and the top gas zone. Maintaining a minimal differential pressure between the two zones ensures that the steam chamber...
