Mining for Bitumen Oil Sands Magazine

2016-6-30  Mined oil sands normally contains from 7 to 13% bitumen by weight. The oil sands is trucked to the Ore Preparation Plant using large heavy haulers. A typical truck load is about 350 to 400 tonnes. Each truck dumps the oil sands load into hopper, feeding into a crusher or sizer. Oil sands mining operations run 24/7.

Crude Oil Extraction and Drilling Methods CAPP

Tailings ponds are common in all types of surface mining around the world. In the oil sands, tailings – consisting of water, sand, clay and trace amounts of oil – are pumped to ponds where the sand and clay gradually settle to the bottom. Water near the top is reused in the mining and bitumen separation process.

Understanding the Properties of Bitumen Froth from Oil ...

18 小时前  Bitumen froth, as the crude product from the surface mining of oil sands, requires the efficient removal of water and solids for further processing. This work has systematically characterized the properties of bitumen froth from an oil sands operation in Northern Alberta and their correlation to the froth treatment efficiency (i.e., removal of water and demulsification behaviors). Systematic ...

Bitumen processing: crude unit revamps

Bitumen is produced via two primary methods: thermal in situ recovery using steam and mining, and extraction of bitumen from oil sands. Current production capacity is roughly split at 50% thermal recovery and 50% mining, and this trend is expected to continue. Most of the mined bitumen currently produced is being upgraded directly in Alberta.
