Abstract
A NOVEL, DOUBLE-WALLED, VACUUM-INSULATED TUBE IS PLANNED FOREFFICIENT TRANSMISSION OF HOT WATER OR STEAM FOR ENHANCED THERMAL RECOVERY OF HEAVY OIL FROM DEEP OIL RESERVOIRS. THIS DESIGN IMPROVES THE STRUCTURAL RELIABILITY WHILE P PROVIDING IMPROVED THERMAL INSULATION HAVING A LOW MANUFACTURING COST. PHASE I OF THIS PROGRAM INVOLVES THE DETAILED ANALYSIS, DESIGN, AND OPTIMIZATION OF THE TUBING. A PLAN WILL BE PREPARED FOR THE TESTING NECESSARY TO PROVE FEASIBILITY AND MANUFACTURING TECHNIQUES. THIS TEST AND DEVELOPMENT PLAN WILL THEN BE IMPLEMENTED IN PHASE II.
