Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method of producing oil is disclosed. The method can include providing a naturally occurring or synthetically produced hydrocarbon source material. The method can also include physically degrading the hydrocarbon source material into small pieces. The method can further include heating the hydrocarbon source material indirectly to a temperature sufficient to gasify hydrocarbons in the hydrocarbon source material and release the hydrocarbons from the source material. Additionally, the method can include capturing the hydrocarbons released from the source material, separating the hydrocarbons into like components, and collecting the like hydrocarbon components.
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé de production d'huile. Le procédé peut consister à utiliser une matière brute hydrocarbonée, d'origine naturelle ou produite par voie de synthèse. Le procédé peut également consister à dégrader physiquement la matière brute hydrocarbonée en de petits morceaux. Le procédé peut en outre consister à chauffer la matière brute hydrocarbonée indirectement à une température suffisante pour gazéifier les hydrocarbures dans la matière brute hydrocarbonée et pour libérer les hydrocarbures de la matière brute. De plus, le procédé peut consister à capturer les hydrocarbures libérés de la matière brute, à séparer les hydrocarbures en composants similaires et à récupérer les composants hydrocarbonés similaires.
