A tiny Canadian oilsands company has struck a deal with a subsidiary of China's state-owned oil corporation, agreeing to trade information on oilsands technology and potential exploration efforts.

Thermal Projects Wabiskaw - Recognized the potential for cost-effective thermal recovery of a 2.0 billion barrel bitumen deposit in the Grand Rapids Formation within the Woodenhouse area. Because of “reserve growth,” a country or a company may increase its oil reserves without tapping new areas if it can recover more oil from its known fields. In the 1960s, introduction of thermal recovery technologies (application of steam technology) caused abrupt and substantial additions to reserves in fields that contain heavy oil (American Petroleum Institute (API) gravity less than . Language: English Released: 1991. A CNOOC limited offshore project, and Sunshine Oilsands' research of the 'multi-component thermal fluid thermal recovery technology' gives a possible indication that it could work economically in bitumen reservoirs,” co-chairman Songning Shen said in a press release. The pilot will use three parallel horizontal wells with electrical cables to conduct heat throughout the targeted bitumen formation. Alberta's vast oil sands — a mixture of sand, water and a semisolid form of petroleum called bitumen — account for 97 percent of Canada's proven crude oil reserves, making Canada the largest source of foreign oil for the world's According to a report by oil sands industry consulting firm Strategy West, “The primary disadvantage of steam-based thermal recovery techniques is the large amount of energy and water that must be consumed for the generation of steam. We would have had the best oil reservoir in the world sitting right here.” As it is, the resource is heavy. GO Thermal Recovery of Oil and Bitumen Author: Roger M. April 19, 2013 - Reducing fresh water use and enhancing oil recovery in oil sands development are among five new pilot projects supported by Alberta's The project is designed to develop the bitumen in a reservoir that is too viscous for conventional production, but does not require as much heat as most current thermal projects. This apparently paradoxical situation is occurring because supplies of conventional crude oil have peaked while growing economies in South America have increased demand for refined fuel. 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).
