简介：加拿大地层油气公司比来关注一项新技术，即压裂碳酸盐岩沥青开采技术，该项技术艾伯塔大学石油工程教学以及研讨员共同开发，与传统沥青开采技术相比，该项技术的采收率能够到达80%-95%。A technology designed to extract bitumen from fractured carbonates has caught the attention of Strata Oil & Gas. The Alberta-based producer has entered into an option agreement with the University of Alberta for the exclusive Canadian license to the technology, described in part of the Canadian patent application “Hydrocarbon Recovery Process for Fractured Reservoirs” (serial no. 2,639,997) and relating to “Steam-Over-Solvent Injection for Heavy-Oil Recovery in Fractured Reservoirs.”
The technology, which was developed by researchers under the supervisions of Tayfun Babadagli, professor of Petroleum Engineering at the University of Alberta, “results in much faster bitumen recovery and could yield up to 80%-95% compared to less than 20% with conventional techniques,” according to Manny Dhinsa, president of Strata.
The technology is easily implemented using established equipment and extraction materials. It is also environmentally-friendly in that it allows for material-recycling and reduced thermal treatment.“The carbonate-hosted bitumen resources of Alberta are the next frontier in the North American oil industry,” Dhinsa said.” Like oil sands two decades ago, carbonates represent an enormous and relatively untapped petroleum resource.”
Strata owns 100% of the Cadotte Project in the Peace River region of Alberta, a projected 56,000 bpd operation with an expected production life of more than 20 years and a discounted net-present-value of USD1.2 billion.“The reason we entered into this option agreement for the exclusive Canadian license is not just to test the technology on our Cadotte Project, but also because we believe the technology might be applied successfully to the entire carbonate-hosted bitumen triangle, which comprises 26% of Alberta’s 1.7 trillion bbl bitumen resource,” Dhinsa concluded.
