United States Geological Service's (USGS) Estimate of Recoverable Oil Reserves of the Orinoco Oil Belt is the go-to source regarding the Orinoco reservoir's size After describing how this oil-saturated bed of sandstone ended up 150 to 1500 metres below the surface of the East Orinoco Basin the authors' estimate "oil-in-place" to be


The Orinoco Oil Belt (Faja) is the largest known heavy oil reserve in the planet Geologically its reservoirs are composed mainly of sequences of shales and unconsolidated sands The properties of the sand units such as shale volume water saturation porosity and thickness can present lateral heterogeneity at a few hundred feet scale

The Athabasca oil sands are large deposits of bitumen or extremely heavy crude oil located in northeastern Alberta Canada – roughly centred on the boomtown of Fort McMurray These oil sands hosted primarily in the McMurray Formation consist of a mixture of crude bitumen (a semi-solid rock-like form of crude oil) silica sand clay minerals and water

The Great Canadian Oil Sands Ltd (GCOS) plant is considered a landmark in oil sands development It was the world's first large-scale commercial oil sands surface mining and refining plant and pioneered technology for bitumen extraction and upgrading

By 2013 there were nine oil sands mining projects in the Athabasca oil sands deposit Suncor Energy Inc (Suncor) Syncrude Canada Limited (Syncrude)'s Mildred Lake and Aurora North Shell Canada Limited (Shell)'s Muskeg River and Jackpine Canadian Natural Resources Limited (CNRL) Horizon Imperial Oil Resources Ventures Limited (Imperial) Kearl Oil Sands Project (KOSP) Total EP

Oil sands mining operations are some of the largest mines in the world Although open-pit oil sands mines have a lot in common with traditional hard-rock mines (such as gold or copper) oil sands operators have some unique challenges due to the softness of the deposit Learn more about surface mining techniques used in the oil sands

Petroleum - Petroleum - Unconventional oil Within the vast unconventional resources category there are several different types of hydrocarbons including very heavy oils oil sands oil shales and tight oils By the early 21st century technological advances had created opportunities to convert what were once undeveloped resource plays into economic reserves

Mining and oil sands development in the Venezuela's Orinoco belt operate outside of scrutiny resulting in ecological and well as socio-economic carnage According to Venezuelan-Canadian journalist Isaac Nahon-Serfaty green progressives outside of Venezuela have chosen ideological blindness over criticizing imagined leftist ideals that are

Canadian and venezuelan oil fields are two of the world's most significant sources of unconventional crudes the first canadian producers of heavy bitumen known as athabasca oil sands used surface mining with massive equipment to mine the oils sands separate the bitumen from the sand and return the sand to the excavation site Details

11 16 4 1 Heavy Oil and Oil Sands Extraction Heavy oil and bitumen are recovered either through surface mining if the hydrocarbon-bearing formation is within 75 m (246 ft) of the surface or through in situ mining at depth (Kim et al 2013) The primary in situ stimulation methods used to promote production by lowering the viscosity of heavy

The Athabasca oil sands located in Northern Alberta Canada are one of the largest oil reserves in the world Over the last 30 years industry has developed the Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) method to extract heavy oil that is too viscous to be extracted using conventional methods and is too deep for surface mining processes

Sep 13 2018Oil sands are a type of unconventional oil that is a mixture of sand and dense viscous bitumen Utah contains approximately 55 percent of U S oil sands deposits concentrated in eight major areas with a total resource volume of over 30 billion barrels Petroteq a Canada-based company is leading the charge to extract this valuable commodity

Jan 24 2019Ren Magritte The black flag 1937 One thing I am not is an expert on Venezuela What I know is the country has the world's largest oil reserves mainly in the Orinoco Belt but they come in a form of tar sands that while they are not as hard to exploit as Canada's (viscosity) they're far from easy and buried deep

The Orinoco River is one of the world's longest rivers (2060 km) and in terms of average water discharge (36000 m 3 s −1) it ranks third Seventy per cent of its basin (1 1 10 6 km 2) is found in Venezuela and the rest in Colombia Due to the uneven distribution of the population toward the northern coastal areas (97 per cent of the population inhabits 55 per cent of the country with only

Heavy viscous oil deposits occur at or near the earth's surface in many parts of the world The deposits have API (American Petroleum Institute) gravities of 50–150 and typically occur within highly porous sands generally referred to as tar sands or bitumen oil sands and heavy oil deposits Vast reserves are contained within these beds
