ABSTRACT 

This project work deals on the feasibility of transferring the Toe – To – Heel Air Injection (THAI) technology which is a new in-situ combustion method of heavy oil recovery from Alberta, Canada, where the technology has recorded success with high rate of recovery to South-West, Nigeria (Ondo state) for efficient heavy oil recovery. In this work, the textural, reservoir, physical and chemical properties of oil sand in Nigeria were compared with that in Canada where the technology has been applied. The properties were analyzed using the “correlative approach” which differentiates and also shows the similarities between the oil sands in the two countries. With the correlative analysis, deductions made based on the objective or purpose of study shows that the properties of oil sand in South￾West, Nigeria compares favorably with the oil sands in Alberta, Canada, thus, Toe – To – Heel Air Injection (THAI) technology can be suitably applied in Nigeria for heavy oil recovery. The THAI technology of heavy oil recovery should be adopted in Nigeria since it is more economical with high recovery rate to compare to other in￾situ combustion methods.

    Abstract Conventionally, air injection has been used for recovery of heavy crude oil in the production field, but studies have shown that depletion of light crude oil in the reservoir leads to abandonment of such wells. Hence, this work studied the kinetics and combustion of light crude oil in-situ... Continue Reading

    ABSTRACT The petroleum sector is an indispensable body in Nigeria economy. It has remained the Nigerian biggest revenue earner. It still brings in more than 80% of the foreign exchange earned by the country. However, this resulted in the shortage of the quantities of petroleum products consumed locally in the country. Hence, the problem of... Continue Reading
