Title
(EN) PROCESS TO TREAT HEAVY OIL OR BITUMEN OR MIXTURES OF DILUTANTS AND HEAVY OIL OR BITUMEN
(FR) PROCÉDÉ DE TRAITEMENT DE PÉTROLE LOURD OU DE BITUME OU DE MÉLANGES DE DILUANTS ET DE PÉTROLE LOURD OU DE BITUME
Abstract
(EN) A heavy oil or bitumen or mixtures of heavy oil and bitumen or mixtures of a dilutant and heavy oil or bitumen is treated to separate components of the feed oil and induce reactions that crack the heavy oil or bitumen into light components. A heated inclined dual tube unit arrangement where feed oil enters the arrangement through the inner tube and which opens partway up the outer tube. Vaporized oil continues to flow up within the outer tube whereas the liquid oil product flows down the annular space between the inner and outer tubes. The vaporized oil is condensed beyond the dual tube arrangement to yield liquid oil products. Heat exchange can be done between the products and the inlet feed oil to improve the energy efficiency of the unit.
(FR) L'invention concerne un pétrole lourd ou un bitume ou des mélanges de pétrole lourd et de bitume ou des mélanges d'un diluant et de pétrole lourd ou de bitume traité pour séparer des constituants du pétrole alimenté et pour induire des réactions qui craquent le pétrole lourd ou le bitume en constituants légers. Un agencement incliné chauffé d'unité de tube double, dans lequel le pétrole alimenté pénètre dans l'agencement à travers le tube interne et qui s'ouvre à mi-chemin du tube externe. Le pétrole vaporisé continue à s'écouler à l'intérieur du tube externe tandis que le produit de pétrole liquide s'écoule vers le bas dans l'espace annulaire entre le tube interne et le tube externe. Le pétrole vaporisé est condensé au-delà de l'agencement de tube double pour produire des produits pétroliers liquides. Un échange de chaleur peut être effectué entre les produits et le pétrole alimenté qui entre pour améliorer l'efficacité énergétique de l'unité.
