Good William Keith, Luhning Rick W, Kisman Kenneth E: Processus permettant dappliquer sequentiellement le sagd aux sections adjacentes dun gisement de petrole, Process for sequentially applying sagd to adjacent sections of a petroleum reservoir. Good William Keith, Luhning Rick W, Kisman Kenneth E, Alberta Science And Research Authority, JOHNSON ERNEST PETER, May 27, 2003: CA2251157 (8 worldwide citation)

Steam assisted gravity drainage ("SAGD") is practised in a first sectionof a reservoir containing heavy oil. When production becomes uneconomic,steam injection into the first section is terminated. Non-condensible gas isthen injected into the section to pressurize it and production of residual oil a ...
