Eventually the steam condenses to hot water in the steam zone the oil evaporates, and in the hot water zone the oil expands. As a result, the oil expands, the viscosity drops, and the permeability increases. To ensure success the process has to be cyclical. This is theEnhanced oil recovery. Enhanced oil recovery (abbreviated EOR), also called tertiary recovery, is the extraction of crude oil from an oil field that cannot be extracted otherwise. EOR can extract 30% to 60% or more of a reservoir's oil, compared to 20% to 40% using primary and secondary recovery. According to the US Department of Energy, there are three primary techniques for EOR: thermal, gas

Solar energy generates steam in a "oncethrough" configuration without recirculation, with closely managed steam quality, to produce wet steam from highcontaminant feed water without scaling or fouling. Feed water is pressurized, preheated, and evaporated in a series of pipes exposed to concentrated solar energy to produce a watersteam mixture for direct distribution to an industrial← GlassPoint Expands Operations to Bakersfield.
