      The geological and biogeochemical context of oil sands have been described and reviewed in Adams et al. () and Larter and Head () and numerous papers referenced therein, and the following introduction is a summary of that work. Oil sands are a mixture of “bitumen,” a very viscous, heavily biodegraded crude oil. Get this from a library!

      At billion barrels, Canada's Oil Sands are the third largest reserves of developable oil in the world. The Oil Sands now produce about million barrels per day, with production expected to double by to about million barrels per day.

Article (PDF Available) Oil Sands Composition and Behaviour. Research. Edmonto n, Canada: Albe rta Oil Sa nds. Total reflection X-ray fluorescence (TXRF) analytical technique was used to determine the elemental composition of Southwestern Nigeria oil sands.

Twelve elements: K, Ca, Ti, V, Cr, Mn, Fe, Ni, Cu, Zn, As, and Pb were detected and their concentrations, enrichment factors, and correlation determined. Geophysical logs indicate that in situ densities are much higher than those determined from conventionally cored gh the behavior of slopes in oil sands suggests that the shear strength is high, the source of strength of the oil sand has not been explained.

Therefore detailed oil sand strength testing was undertaken on samples. (Keywords: oil sands; minerals; reflectance spectroscopy) Oil sands are a complex mixture of clays, bitumen (an array of various hydrocarbons), quartz grains, water and minor accessory minerals".

A detailed knowledge of the physical and chemical properties of these materials is essential for improving bitumen extraction processes and.

The Composition of Oil Sands. Oil sand is composed of quartz sand that is completely enveloped within bitumen, which is the heaviest form of petroleum. Each grain of sand is surrounded by a film of water that is in turn covered by the heavy bitumen oil.

Tar sand bitumen is a high-boiling material with little, if any, material boiling below °C (°F) and the boiling range approximately equivalent to the boiling range of an atmospheric residuum. In order to correct deficiencies in nomenclature of tar sand formations and tar sand bitumen, in the United States, tar sands have been defined (FE) as.

The tables of data on composition, yield, and behaviour of oilsands bitumen and heavy oil fractions are extensive.

Though the focus is on bitumen from Alberta's oilsands-the largest resource in the world-the science applies to upgrading of heavy oil. Unprocessed oil sands contain 3–18% bitumen by weight, along with 2–10% water and 80–85% mineral matter (sand, clay, etc.).

Bitumen is composed chiefly of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), sulfur, lead, mercury, arsenic, nickel, vanadium, chromium, and selenium. Knowledge gaps about the behaviour of diluted bitumen when it is spilled into saltwater and lack of information about how to deal with multiple problems that can result from extracting and transporting bitumen from the Alberta oilsands, make it impossible for government or industry to come up with effective policies to deal with a disaster, says a newly published research.

The composition of petroleum varies greatly, ranging from the simplest gas (methane), condensates, conventional crude oil to heavy oil and oil sands bitumen with complex molecules having molecular weights in excess of daltons (Da).

IOSI supports research leading to water-free processing of oil sands, including technologies that use substantially smaller volumes of water.

A significant challenge is identifying and understanding the behaviour of the bitumen and its interactions with the minerals and water present in the oil sands ― right down to the molecular level.
