Question: oilsand operations using sagd pump saturated steam at 600 k...

Question details

Oilsand operations using SAGD pump saturated steam at 600 K into a reservoir to facilitate bitumen (oil) recovery. Operators must report the volume of steam (actually, the volume if the steam is a liquid) used to recover an equivalent volume of oil. This is known as the SOR (steam oil ratio.) Currently, average SORs are~4. If a barrel of oil (0.16 m3) has 6 GJ of flow exergy, what is the ratio of exergy return to exergy invested? Assume water has the following properties, 6.
