Heavy oil sands core analysis innovations

Kirk Petrophysics has developed new innovative systems applicable to heavy oil sands core analysis – making the complex process more efficient than existing techniques. The company has developed its solid phase multi-sample extraction method – CEPSat – as a rapid and economical oil recovery tool which can help inform critical decisions for operators within the heavy oil arena. Other commonly-used processes include single-sample solvent distillation method Dean Stark (DS) and Low field Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (LNMR) – both of which have been proven less efficient.
