  1. A HIGH-EFFICIENCY TECHNIQUE FOR STEAMFLOODING DEEP, HEAVY OIL RESERVOIRS

    SBC: Carbotek Inc            Topic: N/A

    A STEAMFLOODING/STEAM GENERATION SYSTEM IS PROPOSED FOR DEEP, HEAVY OIL RESERVOIRS. THIS CONCEPT MINIMIZES THE DOWNHOLE HEAT LOSSES, IMPROVES RELIABILITY AND REDUCES THE COST OF STEAM GENERATION. ITS FEATURES WILL MAKE STEAMING OF VERY DEEP WELLS (BELOW 7500 FEET) TECHNICALLY AND ECONOMICALLY FEASIBLE, AND WILL IMPROVE THE ECONOMICS OF SHALLOWER WELL STEAMFLOODING. THIS NOVEL CONCEPT SUPPLIES HEAT ...

  8. A MACHINE LEARNING BASED GEOTHERMAL DRILLING OPTIMIZATION SYSTEM USING EM SHORT-HOP TELEMETRY OF BIT DYNAMICS MEASUREMENTS

    SBC: E-Spectrum Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 11a

    There is currently no cost-effective way to accurately measure the forces and accelerations acting on a drill bit in a hard-rock geothermal well and to then transmit that information uphole to the driller in a timeframe that allows its use in optimizing drilling performance. Consequently, drilling tends to be slow and drill bits suffer short lives, so geothermal wells tend to cost much more than o ...
