enGUARD™ Coating Technology
A substrate metallic bond that increases corrosion resistance, scale resistance and abrasion wear resistance, thereby improving the long-term performance of sand control products designed to exploit heavy oil and bitumen reservoirs as well as conventional sandy and viscous applications.
AUTONOMOUS INFLOW CONTROL DEVICE (AICD)
Designed specifically for SAGD applications to provide steam blocking within the device while allowing for the optimal production of oil/water emulsion. The AICD also allows the production engineer to operate wells more efficiently by lowering the sub-cool, thereby allowing the reservoir to produce unrestricted and at its full production rate.
RESERVOIR MODELLING PROGRAMS
RGL’s proprietary modelling programs, including those developed in collaboration with one of Canada’s leading energy industry operators, provide operators with a deeper understanding of the physics and mathematics of their operations by considering the conservation of mass, momentum and energy. Since steady-state modelling and analysis can be more challenging to simulate than transient modelling and analysis in SAGD operations, the RGL program incorporates both heat transfer and thermodynamic modelling, which is then coupled with reservoir and wellbore flow dynamics
