Pressure swing processes for producing heavy hydrocarbons from reservoir

A process for producing hydrocarbon material from a hydrocarbon reservoir through a production well that is disposed in fluid communication with an injection well via an interwell region disposed within a communication zone, comprising: maintaining pressure within the communication zone above a predetermined high pressure during a high pressure production phase, in and during at least a fraction of the high pressure production phase, supplying the first production-initiating fluid to the communication zone such that: mobilization of producible hydrocarbon material within the communication zone is effected, and such that the mobilized hydrocarbon material is conducted to the production well and produced via the production well; and at least a fraction of the supplied non-condensable gaseous material becomes dissolved within hydrocarbon material disposed within the communication zone; effecting a reduction in pressure of the communication zone from above the predetermined high pressure to below a predetermined low pressure such that at least a fraction of the dissolved non-condensable gaseous material becomes liberated from solution within the hydrocarbon material and, upon the liberation, expands and thereby at least contributes to driving the mobilized hydrocarbon material to the production well; after the effected reduction in pressure, maintaining pressure within the communication zone below the predetermined low pressure during a lower pressure production phase; effecting an increase in pressure of the communication zone from below the predetermined low pressure to above the predetermined low pressure; and repeating steps through, at least once.. . ...

Processes for producing hydrocarbons from a reservoir

There is provided a process for producing hydrocarbons from a reservoir. The process includes within the hydrocarbon reservoir, electrically heating a liquid heating fluid such that the liquid heating fluid is evaporated to produce a gaseous heating fluid, heating hydrocarbon material with the gaseous heating fluid such that the heated hydrocarbon material is mobilized and such that the gaseous heating fluid is condensed to produce a condensed heating fluid, and electrically heating at least a fraction of the condensed heating fluid such that the at least a condensed heating fluid fraction is re-evaporated, and while the evaporation, the condensing, and the re-evaporation are being effected, producing a produced fluid including at least the mobilized hydrocarbon material.. ...

Upgrading of hydrocarbon material

There is provided a process for upgrading a hydrocarbon material. The process includes: (a) treating a hydrocarbon material-comprising feed, wherein the treating includes cracking a hydrocarbon material-comprising feed, such that an upgraded intermediate is produced; and (b) in the absence, or the substantial absence, of adscititious diatomic hydrogen, reducing the content of olefinic material within at least a fraction of the upgraded intermediate such that an olefinic material content-reduced product is produced.. ...

Later stage hydrocarbon production processes

A hydrocarbon production process comprising operating a first early stage hydrocarbon production process within a first communication domain with a first well pair, and operating a second early stage hydrocarbon production process within a second communication domain with a second well pair, such that an intermediate reservoir region including stranded bitumen becomes disposed between the first and second communication domains; wherein the first early stage hydrocarbon production process includes injecting a first production-initiating fluid via a first injection well of the first well pair into a first communication domain such that hydrocarbon material is mobilized and conducted to a first production well of the first well pair, and producing the received hydrocarbon material via the first production well; and wherein the second early stage hydrocarbon production process includes injecting a second production-initiating fluid via a second injection well of the second well pair into a second communication domain such that hydrocarbon material is mobilized and conducted to a second production well of the second well pair, and producing the received hydrocarbon material via the second production well; selecting a pre-selected zone within the reservoir, wherein the selecting is based upon temperature fall-off data within the first and second communication zones; and positioning a portion of an infill well within the pre-selected zone for receiving mobilized hydrocarbon material of at least the intermediate reservoir region and for producing the received hydrocarbon material.. . ...
