Shell Int Research, January 22, 2003: EP1276959-A2 (1 worldwide citation)

A hydrocarbon containing formation may be treated using an in situ thermal process. Heat may be applied to the formation to raise a temperature of a portion of the formation to a pyrolysis temperature. Heat input into the formation may be controlled to raise the temperature of portion at a selected ...
