101 Properties of GPC separated maltene fractions derived from Utah and Athabasca bitumen1989-11-17GPC; maltene fractions; Utah bitumen; Athabasca bitumen; oil sands; Gel Permeation ChromatographyThis work deals with bitumens derived from two different types of oil sands: 1) Athabasca from the HcHurray formation in Alberta, Canada and 2) from the Unita basin in the green River formation, Utah, USA. Maltenes separated from these two bitumen were fractionated by Gel Permeation Chromatography (...
102 Recovering oil from tar sand using the ROPE process1988-12oil recovery; tar sand; ROPE process; oil from tar sands; Asphalt Ridge tar sands; Sunnyside tar sands; Athabasca tar sandsWestern Research Institute (WRI) is developing a new pyrolysis process called ROPE© (Recycle Oil Pyrolysis and Extraction) for recovering products that require a minimum of upgrading to produce finished marketable fuels (motor gasoline, diesel and aviation fuels).

103 New algorithms for steam assisted gravity drainage using combinations of vertical and horizontal wells1994-04steam assisted gravity drainage; vertical and horozontal wells; SAGD; oil sand reservoirs; vertical injectorsNew algorithms have been presented for steam assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) in oil sand reservoirs using vertical injectors-producers and vertical injectors-horizontal producers. Although SAGD with a pair of horizontal wells has been reported to be promising, it may be necessary to use a combinati...
104 Similitude studies in three-phase ebullieted bed reactors1993-05similitude studies; three-phase ebullieted bed reactors; reactors; processing heavy oils, bitumen, and bitumen derived liquidsThe length of a commercial reactor, in three-phase ebullieted bed processes with pelleted catalysts, for the processing of heavy oils, bitumen and bitumen-derived liquids are long due to the requirement of low space velocities. The reactor length, for laboratory scale studies of such processes, can ...

Carbon capture and geologic sequestration offer one method to reduce carbon emissions from coal and other hydrocarbon fuel. While the federal ...
109 United States tar sands1982U.S. tar sands; tar sands; Interstate Oil Compact CommissionThe term 'Tar Sands' is a catch-all misnomer that includes asphaltic and oil-impregnated sandstones, siltstones, and other elastics and even limestones and other carbonates - but not "oil shales" or man-made paving material. A press agent might entitle this paper "OIL, the Overlooked Billions of Bar...
110 Oil-impregnated rocks of Utah: USERDA field experiment to recover oil from tar sand1976-07oil-impregnated rocks; Utah; USERDA; field experiment; recover oil from tar sand; oil recoveryThe Laramie Energy Research Center, of the U. S. Energy Research and Development Administration, is equipping a field experiment to test the reverse combustion process for recovery of oil from a tar sand on a 10-acre site on the Northwest Asphalt Ridge deposit near Vernal, Utah. A tar sand section 1...
111 U.S. tar sand oil recovery projects1982tar sands; U.S. tar sand oil recovery; oil recovery; U.S. energy demands; crude oil reserves; U.S. tar sands resourceThe increasing U.S. energy demands, decreasing conventional crude oil reserves, and decontrol of crude oil prices have resulted in significant numbers of projects in U.S. tar sands. Data are reported for 62 projects involving both in situ and mining and plant extraction technologies. The data includ...
112 U.S. tar sand oil recovery projects (1982)1982-02U.S. tar sand; oil recovery; energy demand; conventional petroleum decrease; less conventional energy sources; tar sand resourceAs the demand for energy in the United States increases and the reserves of conventional petroleum decrease, the interest in development of less conventional energy sources is increasing dramatically. This interest, plus the recent decontrol of crude oil prices, has resulted in widespread activities...
113 Getting from here to there: Devising an optimal regulatory model for CO2 transport in a new carbon capture and sequestration industry2010regulatory model for CO2 transport; new carbon capture and sequestration; CCS; regulatory modelIf CCS is to become a broad-scale commercial industry in time to meet the need for climate change mitigation, the United States must adopt a regulatory model that will allow for efficient construction of critical infrastructure. A well-crafted regulatory framework gives private would-be CCS operator...
