Title (EN) VARIABLE RATE STEAM INJECTION, INCLUDING VIA SOLAR POWER FOR ENHANCED OIL RECOVERY, AND ASSOCIATED SYSTEMS AND METHODS
(FR) INJECTION DE VAPEUR À DÉBIT VARIABLE, Y COMPRIS PAR LE BIAIS DE L'ÉNERGIE SOLAIRE POUR UNE EXTRACTION DE PÉTROLE AMÉLIORÉE, ET SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS ASSOCIÉS
Abstract:
(EN) Systems and methods for variable rate steam injection, including via solar power for enhanced oil recovery, are disclosed. Several embodiments include using the variable nature of solar-generated steam to improve the efficiency and cost- effectiveness of enhanced oil recovery processes. In particular embodiments, the variable rate injection can provide more uniform steam distribution in an oil-bearing formation, at a lower cost than if the same amount of steam were provided on a continuous basis.
(FR) L'invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés d'injection de vapeur à débit variable, y compris par le biais de l'énergie solaire pour une extraction de pétrole améliorée. Plusieurs modes de réalisation comprennent l'utilisation de la nature variable de vapeur générée par le solaire afin d'améliorer l'efficacité et le rendement des processus d'extraction de pétrole améliorée. Dans des modes de réalisation particuliers, l'injection à débit variable peut produire une distribution de vapeur plus uniforme dans une formation pétrolifère, à un coût inférieur à celui qui serait encouru si la même quantité de vapeur était produite en continu.
