Substantial Investment in Oil Sands and Development in New Technology Will Drive the Market
This research provides a detailed analysis of the North American thermal enhanced oil recovery market. The study covers an historical and a forecast of crude oil production using various thermal enhanced oil recovery methods in both the United States and Canada. The study only covers the steam injection method, steam-assisted gravity drainage method, and a few other methods such as solar enhanced oil recovery.

A brief overview of the solar enhanced oil recovery method is included, which is one step towards a sustainable use of energy in this market. A detailed economic feasibility analysis for steam injection and in-situ combustion technique is an integral part of this report.

Key Findings:
- The North American thermal enhanced oil recovery (EOR) market is mainly driven by heavy oil production in California and oil sands extraction in Alberta, Canada
- In terms of percentage, steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) will be the highest contributor, followed by steam injection. Other thermal EOR methods will contribute the least because of their nascent developmental stage
- While major projects in other EOR methods use older technologies or technologies related to those used in mainstream thermal EOR, projects such as solar EOR tend to be much smaller in scale
