Hot Water Vapor ProcessHeavy Oil
This field trial will represent the first field evaluation of the of the Hot Water Vapor Process, which is a potential low energy and low cost thermal stimulation and gas drive follow-up recovery process for Cold Heavy Oil Production with Sand reservoirs.
The purpose of the HWVP project was to develop a new technology to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) intensity, while improving recovery from conventional and non-conventional resources. HWVP will result in lower GHG emissions, and minimizes both water usage and land impact compared to alternative EOR approaches for heavy oil resources in Alberta and Saskatchewan. The successful commercialization of a new heavy oil EOR technology could potentially open the door for adapting the same technology to oil sands.
