The swiss army knife of SAGD

swiss army knifeSAGD, which only became popular in the last 10 years, has potential for all sorts of modifications. But what if you could get blanket approval to use any and all of these modifications in one scheme?

With AppIntel, you can get newly submitted applications relevant to your operations. Just set up AppIntel hit alerts for the word thermal bitumen. When a new application that contains this keyword is submitted to the regulator, you get an instant email notifying you.

One operator applied for the swiss army knife of SAGD. If approved, his new project will be able to use many different technologies to enhance SAGD without further application.

He has asked for steam, solvent, and methane injection, coupled with radio frequency heating, resistive and electromagnetic heating, and circulation strings -- all in the same application!

Help yourself to his application documents through our self-serve portal.

Flexibility - what's it worth?

What if you were able to use appropriate bitumen recovery technology without waiting for additional permission? Would that allow quicker production increases and higher returns?

Just ask some of those companies who are still waiting for approvals over six years later.

Planning for quick approvals

How do some companies get quick approvals when other are waiting for years?

The best way is to read the applications of others. Look for regulator objections and how they were resolved.

We always read closed applications. These applications were refused by the regulator. Finding the reasons for refusals helps pave the way for quicker approvals.

The fastest way to find closed applications is by using AppIntel.
