Time-Lapse Crosswell Tomography in the Athabasca Tar Sands Anna Droujinina, Heriot-Watt University/British Geological Survey, Colin MacBeth* and Patrick Corbett, Heriot-Watt University.

Summary Two crosswell seismic surveys were acquired in the Athabasca Tar Sands at Steepbank oil-sand reservoir before and after the start of the steam injection.

Time-Lapse Crosswell Tomography In the Athabasca Tar Sands - OnePetro Two crosswell seismic surveys were acquired in the Athabasca Tar Sands at Steepbank oil-sand reservoir before and after the start of the steam injection. The objectives of the survey were to monitor the shape and the movement of the steam zone and idAuthor: Anna Droujinina, Colin MacBeth, Patrick Corbett.

These time-lapse borehole seismic surveys, crosswell and vertical seismic profile (VSP), were acquired to monitor the CO2 distribution using two boreholes (the new injection well and a pre. Time-lapse seismic in reservoir management is an important technology to help understand petroleum reservoirs and thus to produce more oil and gas from -D reservoir monitoring, an important part of the above, involves the study of two or more 3-D seismic surveys over the same reservoir in the hope of observing changes with time caused by petroleum production.

The Leading Edge, pp. Nur, A. M., The Athabasca oil sands are the largest segment of the economy in Alberta, making up just over 30 percent of the gross domestic product.

In the – fiscal year, the Alberta government reported that “synthetic crude oil and bitumen royalty [from oil companies] accounted for about $ billion or almost 55 per cent of Alberta’s $ Author: Holli Riebeek. The Athabasca Oil Sands have undergone rapid and extensive strip mine development.

This activity is expected to resume as the cost of petroleum continues to rise. 16 spring, summer, and fall LANDSAT color composite transparencies at the 1/1 million scale were evaluated for use in environmental by: 2.

The Athabasca Tar Sands (also known as Oil Sands) are a very large source of heavy, viscous oil, known as bitumen, located in Alberta, Canada. The bitumen is mixed in sand or clay. Bitumen is chemically similar to asphalt. The oil extracted from the bitumen‐sand mixture is knownFile Size: 1MB.

The present study is an integration of recent outcrop and subsurface studies, mainly focused in the Fort McMurray area of northeastern Alberta. The basis of the regional geologic framework includes outcrop sections (78), Cited by: Reflection Seismology for Potash and O Techniques Applied to Obtain Very High-Resolution 3-D Seismic Imaging at an Athabasca Tar Sands Thermal Pilot: ABSTRACT The goal of time-lapse.

The Athabasca oil sands, also known as the Athabasca tar sands, are large deposits of bitumen or extremely heavy crude oil, located in northeastern Alberta, Canada – roughly centred on the boomtown of Fort oil sands, hosted primarily in the McMurray Formation, consist of a mixture of crude bitumen (a semi-solid rock-like form of crude oil), silica sand, clay minerals, and nates: 57°01′N °39′W / °N.

Geomorphologic characteristics of the strata observed in seismic time slices reveal that a fluvial depositional setting was prevalent. Ichnologic and palynologic data, as well as sedimentary structures suggestive of tidal processes, indicate a marine influence in the upper reaches of a fluvial system characterized by channels that were to Cited by: These factors all increase the likelihood of seeing a time-lapse seismic signature (Lumley et al., ).

What has proven more challenging than the time-lapse reservoir monitoring is reservoir characterization aimed at distinguishing good quality sands from shales that can limit : Kelsey Schiltz, David Gray.

Deterministic mapping of reservoir heterogeneity in Athabasca oil sands using surface seismic data. Although the concept of time-lapse seismic reservoir monitoring is relatively new, a few notable pilot projects have been attempted at EOR steam sites. Pullin et al.

REALITY CHECK: WATER AND THE TAR SANDS Reality Check TAILINGS AND HEALTH RISKS The tar sands create million litres of toxic waste — every day.

Devriese. Time-lapse Seismic Modeling in Leming Lake, Alberta John J. Zhang, Laurence R. Bentley, Tony Settari and Ed Krebes, University of Calgary Introduction Heavy oil has been produced since from the Clearwater formation in Leming Lake area.

Imperial Oil has shot time-lapse 3D.Bituminous sands are those impregnated with oil too heavy and viscous to be extracted by conventional drilling techniques. Bitumen is the name of the oil which comes from the sands. Bituminous sands are popularly misnamed as “tar sands” and so the US Geological Survey has proposed a definition for tar sands.

(,). Oil sands are the most important of the oil and gas resources in Canada. So the distribution and evaluation of oil sands form a critical basis for risk investment in Canada.

Distribution of oil sands resources is severely controlled by the reservoir heterogeneity. Deterministic modeling is commonly used to solve the heterogeneity problems in the reservoir, but rarely used to evaluate Cited by: 2.
