Title (EN) MATERIALS AND METHODS FOR RECOVERING OIL FROM OIL SANDS
(FR) MATÉRIAUX ET PROCÉDÉS DE RÉCUPÉRATION DU PÉTROLE PRÉSENT DANS DES SABLES BITUMINEUX
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention provides environmentally-friendly compositions and methods for recovering oil from oil sands. The present invention can also be used for reducing the viscosity and/or increasing the API gravity of oil. In specific embodiments, the invention utilizes compositions comprising biochemical-producing microorganisms and microbial growth by-products, such as biosurfactants, as well as cavitation, to enhance oil recovery.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des compositions et des procédés respectueux de l'environnement pour la récupération du pétrole présent dans des sables bitumineux. La présente invention peut également être utilisée pour réduire la viscosité et/ou augmenter la densité API du pétrole. Dans des modes de réalisation spécifiques, l'invention utilise des compositions comprenant des micro-organismes produisant des composés biochimiques et des sous-produits de croissance microbienne, tels que des tensioactifs biologiques, ainsi que la cavitation, pour améliorer la récupération du pétrole.
