Title (EN) MICROWAVE-ASSISTED BITUMEN EXTRACTION WITH VACUUM-ASSISTED SEDIMENT FILTRATION
(FR) EXTRACTION DE BITUME ASSISTÉE PAR MICRO-ONDES À FILTRATION DE SÉDIMENTS ASSISTÉE PAR PRESSION NÉGATIVE
Abstract:
(EN) Method for characterizing a heavily biodegraded oil sand ore sample by microwave-assisted bitumen extraction. Vacuum-filtration of solvent-extracted bitumen and sediments provides a means to recover sediment fines down to a particle size of 0.8 μm, which is the analytical requirement for accurate mineralogical analysis of the clay mineral fraction. The method may be completed in hours, making it suitable for "just-in-time" analyses at the mine site. The recovered sediment and sediment fines are suitable for characterization using traditional analytical techniques to understand mineralogy, petrology, and reservoir properties.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé permettant de caractériser un échantillon de minerai de sable pétrolifère fortement biodégradé par extraction de bitume assistée par micro-ondes. Une filtration par pression négative de bitume et de sédiments extraits par solvant fournit un moyen de récupération de fines de sédiments de taille particulaire inférieure à 0,8 µm, qui constitue l'exigence analytique en vue d'une analyse minéralogique précise de la fraction d'argiles. Le procédé peut être achevé en quelques heures, ce qui le rend approprié pour des analyses « juste-à-temps » au niveau du site minier. Le sédiment et les fines de sédiment récupérés sont appropriés pour une caractérisation à l'aide de techniques analytiques classiques permettant de comprendre les propriétés minéralogiques, pétrologiques et de réservoir.
