 WHAT FUTURE FOR EXTRA HEAVY OIL AND BITUMEN : THE ORINOCO CASE
Located in eastern Venezuela, the Orinoco oil belt (or Faja del Orinoco) is one of the largest known accumulation of bitumen in the world, estimated to be around 1,200 Gb of hydrocarbons in place.
The second method of monetizing Orinoco bitumen is by upgrading it : recognizing that raw bitumen, whether emulsified or diluted with a solvent, remains a low value fuel and feed stock with environmental limitations, the upgrading approach treats the bitumen locally in large upgrading -ie deep coking/cracking and hydrotreating- units.
This second family of projects aimed at the export of Orinoco belt bitumen in the form of fully or partially upgraded bitumen as synthetic crude, should allow the progressive transformation of large tonnages of bitumen from the status of << resource >>, to the status of << reserves >>.
