Expanding of spheres the application of borehole hydro-production technology to develop deposits of non-traditional hydrocarbons
MetadataShow full item record
The reserves of oceanic hydrates of methane and natural bitumen in times exceed the stocks of traditional oil and gas. The purpose is the analysis of the adaptation possibility of borehole mining technology for the development of bituminous sands deposits and marine gas hydrates was the purpose of the study. The variants of the HBM technology adaptation for the development of bituminous sands and gas hydrates deposits are proposed. The method of extracting gas hydrates based on HBM technology involves them removal without the energy consumption for phase transition. The main advantages of the development of bituminous sands deposits on the basis of HBM technology are: the possibility them extraction in the range of depths 75 – 200 m, the potential high rate of bitumen extraction, the separation of bitumen from the rock in production, the minimum impact on the environment, the possibility of conducting extraction of natural bitumen in areas covered with water.
