This paper investigates aquathermolysis of heavy oil in carbonate reservoir rocks from Boca de Jaruco (JSC «Zarubezhneft»), which is developed by the cyclic steam stimulation method. The nickel-based catalyst precursor was introduced in order to intensify the conversion processes of heavy oil components. The active form of such catalysts—nickel sulfides—are achieved after steam treatment of crude oil at reservoir conditions. It is revealed that catalyst particles provide a reduction in the content of resins and asphaltenes due to the destruction of carbon-heteroatom bonds. The oil recovery factor is enhanced due to irreversible viscosity reduction of crude oil. View this paper.
