Methods for Increasing the Recovery from Oil Sands

Methods for Increasing the Recovery from Oil Sands

Date: 1917
Creator: Lewis, J. O.
Description: From Introduction: "In this publication are considered the principles involved in increasing recovery and methods of extracting more oil from the oil-bearing formations than by usual ways of producing. These methods are: The use of gas or vacuum pumps. forcing compressed air or gas through the oil-bearing formations, displacing the oil by water, and better utilization of the natural pressures in the oil-bearing formations."

Oil-storage Tanks and Reservoirs with a Brief Discussion of Losses of Oil in Storage and Methods of Prevention

Oil-storage Tanks and Reservoirs with a Brief Discussion of Losses of Oil in Storage and Methods of Prevention

Date: 1918
Creator: Bowie, C. P.
Description: From Introduction: "The Bureau of Mines has been conducting investigations with the view of determining the types of containers best adapted to the storage of oil. These investigations have shown that tanks composed wholly of steel give the best results. Practically all such containers in use at present have wooden roofs and this type of construction is here described, although it is the belief of the writer that concrete roofs would be far more satisfactory in every way, and that the difference in cost between a concrete and a wooden roof would, as a rule, in a few year's time, be offset by a saving oil and in cost of repairs and renewals."
