Oil sands

Oil sands production area in Fort McMurray, Alberta. Oil sands are a mixture of sand, clay, water, and bitumen that occur naturally. Bitumen is the fossil fuel component of this sand, and it is a very viscous oil that must be treated and upgraded before it can be used to produce useful fuels such as gasoline. Oil sand deposits are found around ...

What Are Tar Sands? | Union of Concerned Scientists

 · Tar sands are an increasingly common—but expensive and dirty—source of oil. Tar sands (also known as oil sands) are a mixture of mostly sand, clay, water, and a thick, molasses-like substance called bitumen. Bitumen is made of hydrocarbons—the same molecules in liquid oil—and is used to produce gasoline and other petroleum products.

Petroleum and the Environment: an Introduction | American ...

Canadian oil sand production has increased substantially since 2005. Deeper oil sand deposits are commonly extracted by heating the oil, which thins it so that it can flow up through a well. Shallower deposits are extracted by open-pit mining of the oil sands, which are then processed to remove the oil.

Heavy Oil Production

James G. Speight PhD, DSc, in Oil Sand Production Processes, 2013 4.2.1 Cold Heavy-Oil Production with Sand. CHOPS is used as a production approach in unconsolidated sandstones. The process results in the development of high-permeability channels (wormholes) in the adjacent low-cohesive-strength sands, facilitating the flow of oil foam that is caused by solution gas drive.
