Introduction to the Canadian Oil Sands, Canadas Oil Sand Industry: An Overview, Heavy Oil Technologies, and so many other topics about heavy oil have become the hotcakes in the oil industry. A number of new projects are in Execute phase for the devel... Read More about Design and real-time process optimisation of steam assisted gravity drainage for improved heavy oil recovery..

Stress effects on flow partitioning in fractured reservoirs: equivalent porous media versus poro-elasticity coupled modeling. (2013)
Conference Proceeding
SANAEE, R., OLUYEMI, G.F., HOSSAIN, M. and OYENEYIN, M.B. 2013. Stress effects on flow partitioning in fractured reservoirs: equivalent porous media versus poro-elasticity coupled modeling. In Pyrak-Nolte, L.J., Morris, J., Chan, A., Rostami, J. and Dershowitz, W. (eds.) Proceedings of the 47th U.S. rock mechanics/geomechanics American Rock Mechanics Association (ARMA) symposium 2013, 23-26 June 2013, San Francisco, USA. Alexandira, VA: American Rock Mechanics Association (ARMA), 3, pages 2329-2337.

In this paper the effects of overburden stress on fracture-matrix flow partitioning were numerically analyzed using two different numerical approaches; the analysis was validated using a fractured Clashach core flood laboratory experimental data. In... Read More about Stress effects on flow partitioning in fractured reservoirs: equivalent porous media versus poro-elasticity coupled modeling..

Modeling multiphase solid transport velocity in long subsea tiebacks: numerical and experimental methods. (2013)
Thesis
BELLO, K.O. 2013. Modeling multiphase solid transport velocity in long subsea tiebacks: numerical and experimental methods. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Transportation of unprocessed multiphase reservoir fluids from deep/ultra-deep offshore through a long subsea tieback/pipeline is inevitable. This form of transportation is complex and requires accurate knowledge of critical transport velocity, flow...

Investigation of CO2 sequestration during cold heavy oil production. (2013)
Journal Article
TCHAMBAK, E., OYENEYIN, B. and OLUYEMI, G. 2013. Investigation of CO2 sequestration during cold heavy oil production. Energy sources, part A: recovery, utilization and environmental effects [online], 35(12), pages 1174-1184. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1080/15567036.2010.520068

CO2 sequestration during cold heavy oil production using captured carbon dioxide was investigated using REVEAL of Petroleum Experts. The results indicated that the CO2 release was influenced by the production phases. The prediction showed high CO2 re...
