Title: IN SITU HYDROCARBON MOBILIZATION PROCESS AND SURFACE FACILITY FOR THE SAME
Abstract:
An in situ hydrocarbon mobilization process includes the steps of: Selecting a working solvent for a condensing in situ gravity drainage extraction process; injecting the working solvent as a liquid into a hydrocarbon bearing formation to create a gravity drainage flow path to a production well through a portion of the formation; and transitioning to in situ condensing conditions with said working solvent within said formation to create an extraction chamber above said gravity drainage flow path.
