ANNULUS/BOTTOM HOLE HEATING ENHANCED HEAVY OIL RECOVERY
Heat applied to the annulus fluid has been proven as the most successful method for enhanced heavy oil recovery.
N-Line Tools ANNULUS HEATER installed at or near the perforations, in the annulus fluid, is a constant heat source. This N-Line Tools patented and unique design provides a direct contact heat source to the annulus fluid.
Raising the temperature of heavy oil (8-20 API) greatly reduces the viscosity of the oil, enhancing its flow resulting in increased production..
N-Line Tools Heating System Technology makes Trace Heating, Chemicals and Hot Oiling obsolete. Trace Heating, in my opinion, has a short life span, lacks durability, and adequate controls.
