In modern coking plants, water quenching has been replaced by dry quenching, where the coke is smothered. This allows much of the heat of the coke charge to be recovered for various needs in the plant. In general, low temperature processes produce a softer coke and a larger proportion of by-products. Coke is used in blast furnace operations, foundries, and the manufacture of water gas, producer gas, domestic heating, and industrial purposes. The needs of gas coking plants differ from the needs of gas generators.
This will flush some of the remaining oil into the other wells. Acidizing involves pumping acid with an additive to deter corrosion into the reservoir. Hydraulic fracturing may combine water, acid, or crude oil with sand at high pressures to produce new cracks and enlarge existing ones in the reservoir rock. As this fluid is removed, it leaves the sand behind to prop open these fractures. In the Permian Oil Basin of the United States, fracturing operations have increased the known recoverable oil reserve of the area by 120 million barrels.
