  • HEATPROBLEMS WITH

    ?LOSS

    Isothermica Vacuum Insulated Tubing will substantially reduce heat loss

    and deliver high steam quality to the oil formation.

    Higher steam quality (more BTUs) at the oil formation improves

    viscosity reduction in produced crude oil.

    Higher steam quality means lower heat losses and therefore lower

    casing and cement temperatures.

    Higher steam quality (more BTUs) delivered to the formation can

    reduce the volume of steam required per injection cycle, reducing

    energy and capital equipment costs.

    Isothermica is able to achieve all of this through the absolute vacuum

    atmosphere created within the annular space of the two corresponding

    seamless pipes. Clearly, Isothermica is a critical necessity in the efficient

    and enhanced recovery of Heavy and Extra-Heavy Oil.

    ViscosityProblemsIsothermica maximizes delivery of BTUs to the oil formation

    maximizing viscosity reduction.

    Isothermica keeps your steam dry delivering high steam quality to the oil formation. Because the steam is dryer, more BTUs are delivered thereby allowing you to consider reducing the volume of steam required.

    Isothermicas thermal efficiency insures against casing failures by keeping heat inside the injection string and away from your casing and cement.

  • On behalf of the 2010 CADECAODC Conference Executive Committee, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 14th CADECAODC Drilling Conference at the Calgary Telus Convention Centre.You may have heard that due to the increasing popularity of this conference, we required

    this larger venue to accommodate twice as many impressive case studies as we had in the 2009 conference. There will be two concurrent sessions running throughout the day, covering completions innovations, directional and managed pressure drilling, and operational integrity.

    The submissions this year are inspiring illustrations of collaboration between operator and service organizations and a sincere thank you to those contributors who have extended the opportunity to us to learn from their examples. It is this generosity in our community that makes us all strong in this highly competitive global landscape. Please consider you own participation in our conference next year!

    Also be sure to visit www.drillingconference.ca, which is designed to provide better access to information and enable our delegates to have a voice in how this conference continues to develop. Take a look after the conference for access to presentations, current media, and an opinion poll in which you can provide us with feedbackwe are interested to hear your thoughts and suggestions.
