Berchenko Ilya Emil, Fowler Thomas David, de Rouffignac Eric Pierre, Vinegar Harold J, Wellington Scott Lee, Zhang Etuan, Ryan Robert Charles, Shahin Gordon Thomas, Stegemeier George Leo, Karanikas John M: In-situ pyrolytic recovery from a hydrocarbon formation. Shell Int Research, February 18, 2004: GB2391891-A (4 worldwide citation)

A method of treating hydrocarbons in a formation (200) involves providing heat from one or more heat sources (202) to a portion of the formation (200) and allowing heat to transfer to a selected section of the formation (200) by conduction. The heat causes pyrolysis of the hydrocarbons and the produ ...

Shell Int Research, February 18, 2004: GB2391890-A (4 worldwide citation)

A method of treating a formation (200) involves heating (202) the formation (200) and allowing heat to transfer to a section (208) of the formation (200) so that the heat pyrolyzes at least 20 % of the hydrocarbons in said section (208) and that a mixture is produced which includes a condensable com ...

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 ...
