There are approximately 2.5 trillion barrels of the stuff, the largest figuring out how to get the dirtiest possible oil out of the hardest-to-reach places. Alberta's Innovative Energy Technologies Program (IETP) is supporting 5 new pilot projects to reduce energy use, water use and CO2 emissions in oil sands processing as well as improving the recovery of crude oil and bitumen in reserves that were once unrecoverable. The successful projects were Imperial Oil is proposing an alternative to thermal recovery processes to reduce direct greenhouse gas emissions from production by more than 90%. Shell, for instance, is working on a "novel thermal recovery process" - embedding large electric heaters in the deposits and literally cooking the earth. Baytex's current asset portfolio includes thermal recovery projects at Seal in the Peace River Oil Sands and at Kerrobert in southwest Saskatchewan. This is a great opportunity for a Reservoir Engineer to consult, provide and be an integral part of the thermal recovery of heavy oil and/or bitumen for our client. Albertans have always known that in the northern part of their province there are vast deposits of bitumen - black, tarlike goo that is mixed up with sand, clay, water and oil. Regulatory approval has been received for the construction and operation of a two-stage bitumen recovery scheme using steam-assisted gravity drainage. Baytex plans a pilot study in 2013. A summary report of the study, conducted by Jacobs Consultancy, was publicly released on May 16, 2012 and provides insight for sustainable oil sands development in Alberta. If successful, a commercial project would begin in 2014 with expected production in 2016. Crude oil is currently a primary source of energy globally, but the decline of light oil reserves has shifted attention to large deposits of untapped heavy oil and bitumen energy resources (~70 % of the World’s 9-13trillion barrel oil resource). The Essential oil sands of Alberta North america Incorporate bitumen reserves Comparable in Sizing Towards the Essential oil fields in Saudi Arabia.
