RF XL can be deployed to develop heavy oil and oil sands projects more economically, sustainably, and quickly than traditional thermal recovery methods like steam assisted gravity drainage (SAGD). The technology uses electromagnetic energy to generate heat inside a heavy oil or oil sands reservoir and acts somewhat like an inside out microwave oven. It converts the water already existing in a reservoir to steam, heating the bitumen and allowing it to flow to the producing well. 

 

Akine Inc.

GHG Emission Intensity Reduction for producing Horizontal Wells: Advanced Artificial Lift Control with Machine Learning

Reduction in energy intensity per barrel for Canadian produced oil is of utmost importance in producing a cleaner, more socially acceptable product. Since GHG emissions are directly associated with energy use, material reduction in energy intensity results in proportional reduction in GHG emissions. Akine technology creates value by reducing the carbon footprint of oil production thus increasing social acceptance of operational activities in today’s carbon constrained world. Power consumption is a leading component of operating cost and a major contributor to GHG emissions for conventional or tight oil wells. Our advanced automation solution includes a modern variable frequency drive and a machine learning augmented controller system that reduces electric cost per unit of production by decreasing both total power consumption and power demand cost. In brown-field conditions, we have achieved above 50% reduction in energy intensity from 24 demonstration wells in SE Saskatchewan based on active metered power consumption as compared to before and after installation of our advanced controllers. We attain similar results in green-field applications with significant reduction in power compared to typical expected power consumption as described in various industry publications. As evidenced by this demonstration project, deployment of Akine technology on conventional and tight oil wells in Western Canada has the potential to reduce emissions by at least 8.5M tonnes CO2e annually.

Proton Technologies

Low Cost, Zero Emission Hydrogen Production from Oil Fields

Proton Technologies’ technology produces commercial concentrations of hydrogen from a heavy oil reservoir while demonstrating small scale surface separation of pure hydrogen from the gas stream through a designed filter. The success of the field demonstration has lead to commercialization of Proton’s patented technology and proof that hydrogen can be produced with zero emissions at a fraction of the cost of current industry practices. The low-cost / zero emissions / commercial scale nexus is the key to unlocking the global hydrogen economy. Hydrogen is the most abundant element on earth but is difficult to extract as it does not occur in free form. Thus, current hydrogen production methods are costly, complex and can produce high carbon emissions. Proton’s patented process combines proven technologies from the in-situ gasification industry with hydrogen selectivity techniques from the Steam Methane Reforming (SMR) industry, producing H2 from oil fields by separating H2 from hydrocarbons in the subsurface. The commercial subsurface production of hydrogen from an oil reservoir demonstrates an innovation new to Alberta’s oil and gas industry and does not have an equivalent in the Canadian market. Proton expects this hydrogen process to be the economic engine of western Canada in the coming years. This disruptive technology will place Alberta, and Canada at the forefront of the clean energy transition and facilitate the fossil fuel sector’s major role in the transition to a low carbon economy.

Matadi Water on the Hill (WOTH) Project

Access to clean energy is great challenge facing African cities authorities; blackout is a puzzled question in Kinshasa. The “Matadi Water on the Hill (HOTH) project” wants to build a navigable forced duct that runs the water of the Congo River from Kinshasa to Matadi (366 km) with a capacity of 42,000 m3/s average flow of the Congo River. This project will produce clean hydroelectricity power of 123 million of KWh on an artificial fall of 300 m high, on which is installed an elevator lifting the boats of goods from Matadi to Kinshasa, thanks to this forced duct. This project has capacity to supply power to all African countries and Europe, but it will need to be connected to the inter-africa electric railway projects for African integration economic exchanges.

The WOTH project wants to put the African-European Energy partnership (AEEP) talks in practice for African-European Energy Transition and is supported by REFADD Africa Women network: www.refadd.org. The effort made now on Inga III, but it does not work. The management will be under Private-Public-Partnership agreement.

Oilify

WhaleShark Downhole Separator

The WhaleSharkTM Packerless Gas and Solids Separator is a newly developed high performance enhanced downhole separator primarily for horizontal wells that offers the greatest possible gas and solids separation capacity but also with low downhole operational risk (no packer or cup seals required). It avoids limitations of poor-boy and packer-style separators and has set a new benchmark in downhole separation performance.

Large Open-Mouth Intake Technology – the separator uses a never been down before upward facing “open-mouth” collector intake that takes advantage of multiphase fluid flow liquid reversals or liquid fallback common with gas and liquid flows. The gas separation region above the collector intake uses a novel oval-shaped and eccentric (i.e., positioned to the side) pump intake tube that is designed to slow fluid velocities down and maximize liquid fallback downward into the collector. This unique engineered design has greatly improved the separation capacity, with an improvement of up to 500% over previous technologies, allowing for sustained continuous and consistent high sucker rod pump fillage under all downhole flow conditions.

BiSN 

Bismuth Alloy and Thermite Redefined

BiSN is the leading provider of metal-to-metal downhole sealing solutions in the oil and gas industry. Throughout decades, the industry has relied on conventional bridge plugs, cement, or resins to eliminate unwanted substances (i.e., water, CO2 or sand) and to completely seal off wells. An idea, derived in the early 1930’s, explained how a bismuth-based alloy could be used as a possible sealant. However, the method of melting this alloy downhole could not be implemented. In 2010, Paul Carragher (BiSN, CEO) introduced an innovative process of using thermite as the heater to melt the alloy. Once deployed downhole, the patented thermite “wick” would then ignite, liquefying the alloy and permeating all porous locations, known today as the Wel-lok M2M™ technology. Once the technology has been run, there is a rapid solidification of the eutectic bismuth alloy provides a V0, gas tight and environmentally safe barrier. To date, BiSN has been granted 60+ patents across 22 countries with several applications pending. A complete suite of tools has been created around the innovative base technology and can be applied over various applications.
