It is a general understanding that unconventional oil is petroleum-extracted and processed into petroleum products using unconventional means. The recent growth in the United States (US) shale oil production and the lack of refinery in Canada built for heavy crude processes have resulted in a significant increase in U.S imports of unconventional oil since 2018. This has increased the risk of incidents and catastrophic emergencies during the transportation of unconventional oils using transmissio...

Foam is promising for the remediation of non-aqueous phase liquids (NAPL) source zones; however, the production of foam and its behavior in porous media are poorly understood. A methodology for the selection of surfactants suitable for foam production applied to NAPL remediation was developed. Two criteria were initially used for surfactant selection: foamability as evaluated by the Ross–Miles test and interfacial tension reduction measured with the pendant drop method. Three promising surfactan...

Abstract A low-cost chemical hydrophobic sorbent was synthesized by the dip-coating method. The sorbent was characterized using different methods, including TGA, FTIR, XRD, SEM, and Zeta potential. The removal of unconventional oil from water by palmitic acid-modified dolomite was investigated by batch adsorption after varying pHs (1–9), contact times (5–80 min), adsorbent dosage (0.1–0.7 g mL−1), initial oil concentration (3000–7000 ppm), salinity (0–0.1 g mL−1) and different temperatures (299 ...

Abstract Fractured porous media receive less attention than classic porous media in terms of remediation processes and sui` techniques that can be applied efficiently. An etched glass micromodel was built in order to simulate a fractured bedrock. The purpose of this paper was to evaluate the feasibility of surfactant-alcohol injection to recover NAPL with this fractured glass micromodel. The influence of several parameters influencing NAPL recovery via surfactant injection were tested in the mic...
