Heavy Oil and Natural Bitumen--Strategic Petroleum Resources By Richard F. Meyer and Emil D. Attanasi Introduction Because conventional light oil can typically be produced at a high rate and a low cost, it has been used before other types of oil. Thus, conventional oil accounts for a declining share of the Earth's remaining oil endowment.

However, because of the diversity of available information and the continuing attempts to delineate the various world tar-sand deposits, it is virtuallyFile Size: KB. Heavy Oil and Tar Sand Bitumen 7 reflected in the differences observed in various recovery processes as well as in the price variations between conventional crude oil types, the heavy oils, and tar sand bitumen (Tables and ) (Speight, , a, b). Typically, crude oil quality has an effect on the recovery process insofar asFile Size: KB. Oil sands are commonly associated with faults and unconformities, and may also be found in association with oil seeps, springs, tufa deposits and/or mud volcanoes. A recent world-wide compilation of heavy oil and natural bitumen deposits in relation to the different types of geologic basins is given by the U.S. Geological Survey. Resources.
In spite of an immense resource base, heavy oil and natural bitumen accounted for only about 3 billion barrels of the 25 billion barrels of crude oil produced in Compared to light oil, these resources are generally more costly to produce and transport. Also, extra-heavy oil and natural bitumen must.

Heavy Oil and Natural Bitumen Deposits of Latin America. R F Meyer. 28 Feb Paperback. US$ Heavy Oil and Natural Bitumen Deposits of Latin America. R F Meyer. 16 Feb Paperback. US$ Twenty-one samples from natural bitumen and heavy oil deposits in seven States of the United States and six samples from outside the United States form the basis of this initial study. This Circular gives the mineral content of the reservoir rock, the trace-element distribution in the reservoir rock and hydrocarbons, and the composition of the heavy oil and natural bitumen. Oil sand, as mined commercially, contains an average of per cent bitumen, per cent mineral matter and per cent water. A film of water coats most of the mineral matter, and this property permits extraction by the hot-water process. During the hot-water process the oil sand is mixed with water in either a processing drum or pipeline.
