Enhanced Recovery and Upgrading of Bitumen and Heavy Oils Using Nano-Catalyzed Based Processes
Pereira Almao
Upgrading of heavy oils using nano-catalysts is economically achievable at lower temperatures pressures than used in most upgraders. Advanced manufacturing of nano-catalysts has enabled the development of two lines of heavy oils upgrading processes: Upgrading on field and In Situ. The most technically relevant features of nano-catalytic technologies for Field and In Situ Upgrading will be deployed in this talk disclosing the many versatile scheme options so far conceived for their deployment.
