Heavy Oil Gathering Systems Joint Industry Project (JIP)

The objective of the Heavy Oil Gathering Systems (HOGS) Joint Industry Project (JIP) was to identify processes that are cost competitive with trucking for transporting produced fluid from heavy oil wells to a battery.

C-FER continues to evaluate technologies that would allow the wide–spread utilization of gathering lines in heavy oil operations. The key area of research is in developing downhole sand separation and disposal systems to eliminate sand production to surface.
