Semi-field-scale In-Situ Oil Recovery Process Test Facility

The Semi-field-scale In-Situ Oil Recovery Process Test Facility is a large-scale visual cell that can be used to generate detailed information such as oil production performance, development of oil depletion zone and temperature profiles, and solvent fronts for oil recovery processes.

These processes include SAGD, ES-SAGD and steam flooding characteristics in a scale comparable to the field scale, to quantify the key (such as solvent mixing, solvent mobilizing oil and gravity segregation) mechanisms in the oil recovery process.

To do this, we use modelling to predict the performance of the oil recovery process in field scale by matching the numerical history of semi-field-scale tests.
