4 What ifWhat would happen if you combine 4 proven technologies (Pulse, Thermal, Solvent Gas Injection, Toe to Heel Injection Production configuration )into 1 process?Dr. Alex Turta and Dr. Ken Adegbesan believe it may change the way we look at heavy oil and conventional oil recovery.
5 The Concept & Benefits to you When effectively implemented, we believe our Process may be the most efficient way to accelerate fluid flow and disperse liquids through oil-bearing geological material.Economically efficient production, thanks to better oil mobility and anticipated well efficiency , Cheaper Facility due to less steam being generatedThe process of the present invention is adaptable for use in reservoir contexts including but not limited to the following:Reservoirs with high viscosity bitumen or heavy oilReservoirs with mobile bottom waterReservoirs with difficulty cap rock integrity issuesReservoirs with depths not over 1100 metersReservoirs with narrow or restricted net pay over 6 metersReservoirs with depletion drive mechanisms for heavy oil extractionReservoirs for conventional oil production
7 PulseThe process is a thermal pulse jet unit which would be fuelled by a fuel source (Propane or Natural Gas, preferred) of which its exhaust gaseous would be injected into the well.Wet steam/water – syngas injection downhole in a pulsing mode for heavy oil recovery.Each segment is controllable,Maximum benefit supersedes any known enhanced oil recovery program developed.The pulsing mode is adjustable based on design and exhaust port length. (Lifeview Pulsation Tool)
8 ThermalThe thermal temperature of the exhaust gases are regulated to meet the engineering working specifications as set forth by given parameters and the required sonic resonance frequency required to maximum production.Prior to exit point of the downhole pulsation tool, the gases will pass through a downhole heater (adjustable) thus increasing the temperature prior to being expelled through the downhole pulsation tool expulsion ports.Treated water/steam would be injected on the exhaust side. Steam Expansion (High Temperature Steam)This injection will be downhole at the exit point of the hot gas using our designed downhole pulsation tool.
9 ResonanceThe Sonic Resonance Frequency generated by the pulse jet would be regulated based on both temperature and amplitude for the regulation of the wave’s magnitude of oscillation.Causes penetration to within the reservoir and will generate flow to the production well.The sonic frequency is calculated to ensure cap rock integrity is maintained by Geomechanical methods and testing.
10 SyngasThe use of propane or natural gas as a main fuel source along with other thermal operations to product it’s by- products (SYNGAS) would be used as a solvent gaseous solution based on the reservoir requirements.Please note that they may vary based on injection ratio, frequency cycle setting etc and the additional injection of makeup gas to meet our production goals. Temperature will be regulated by above ground activities and also by below ground activities by use of the electronic heating element designed inside the tubular string.
11 InjectedFinally, the injection of water or steam (treated) will be used to increase the mobility of the bitumen flowing to the production well by applying wet steam or water downhole in direct contact with high temperature gaseous.Designed downhole pulsation tool. This will harness the steam expansion characteristics to pulsate movement of the oil by dilating the natural fractures without causing damage to cap rock integrity.Toe to heel configuration well will be used.This short- distance oil displacement will preserve the upgrading. This benefit has been demonstrated in other existing enhanced oil recovery processes and can be controlled to meet the required benefit.
12 ProcessThe key is upgrading underground by making changes to the carbon chain and thermal applicationWith the drive systems being used downhole, production is maximized.Zero Emissions from the injector processGreen process
