Winston R Shu: Lowering CO.sub.2 MMP and recovering oil using carbon dioxide. Mobil Oil Corporation, Alexander J McKillop, Michael G Gilman, Lawrence O Miller, April 30, 1985: US04513821 (41 worldwide citation)

Oil is recovered by a CO.sub.2 miscible oil recovery method in which the CO.sub.2 minimum miscibility pressure of the oil-containing formation is lowered by injecting a coolant into the formation. The formation is then pressurized to a pressure at least that of the reduced CO.sub.2 minimum miscibili ...

Winston R Shu: Method for transporting viscous crude oils. Mobil Oil Corporation, Alexander J McKillop, James F Powers Jr, Lawrence O Miller, December 13, 1983: US04420008 (40 worldwide citation)

Viscous crude oil is mixed with an oil diluent having a relatively low viscosity and the resulting mixture having a predetermined viscosity and flow rate is pumped in a pipeline to a point of use. The flow rates of the viscous crude oil and the diluent are controlled with the aid of a digital comput ...
