Effects of Completion Design on Thermal Efficiency in SAGD
This paper uses a simulation model to evaluate and compare the thermal efficiency of five different completion design cases during the SAGD circulation phase in the Lloydminster formation in the Lindbergh area in Alberta, Canada.
Improved Monitoring System for Heavy-Oil Steam-Assisted-Gravity-Drainage Wells
The complete paper provides an overview of the development of fiber-optic sensing for steam-assisted-gravity-drainage (SAGD) applications, including a review of more than 10 years of work in development and field applications in western Canada.
Satellite Monitoring of Cyclic-Steam Stimulation Without Corner Reflectors
The authors discuss a new way of extracting deformation information from radar imagery, contributing to improved accuracy of InSAR surface-elevation monitoring.
Heavy-Oil Technology May Be a Perfect Fit for Geothermal Power
A Canadian research organization believes the country’s oilfield technology could help another energy sector drive down its costs and it may work out for heavy oil producers too.
Application of Intelligent-Well Technology to an SAGD Producer: Firebag Field Trial
An even temperature conformance along the length of the horizontal well is key in maximizing steam-assisted-gravity-drainage (SAGD) production rates.
Simulation of Flow-Control Devices With Feedback Control for Thermal Operations
Factors such as hydraulic gradients in the horizontal completion, geologic and fluid variations in the reservoir, and well-placement issues can produce very poor steam conformance in steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD).
