  • Cyclic Steam Injection

    • Steam is injected into the producing well

    • A well is shut off for several days allowing heat to uniformly distribute and thin the oil

    • The newly thinned oil is produced

  • Steam Drive

    • Steam is injected into injection wells and the oil is pushed towards production wells

    • Similar effect as water or gas injection

  • In situ Combustion
