Abstract

Crude oil is a mixture of various hydrocarbons and is classified as light oil or heavy oil. Heavy oil is considered to have a high development value, comparable to the residual recoverable reserves of light oil worldwide. Reducing development costs and maximizing heavy oil recovery from underground are common challenges for the oil industry. There are two methods for recovering heavy oil: thermal recovery and non-thermal recovery. This paper explains the development technology and technical points of heavy oil.
