Inproheat Industries offers Enhanced Oil Recovery Steam Generators from Nooter Eriksen, however TIW Western is their Canadian Licensee that Inproheat supports with Combustion technology from John Zink Hamworthy Combustion, namely the Coen Burner Division.
Enhanced Oil Recovery Steam Generators (also known as EORs) are used to increase oil recovery by producing steam that can be directly sent into an oil field. This is accomplished by connecting an EOR to a fired combustion turbine, which allows the production of steam as well as additional waste exhaust to be reused.
On average, the steam created through an EOR contains a quality score of 60%-80% with pressure readings of 880 – 2200 psig.
EORs can be built with duct firing capabilities for increased steam volume and pressure.
Compared to standard heat recovery steam generators, an EOR requires less water filtration, which saves on installation costs.
EORs are designed for easy access for maintenance as tubes can be cleaned directly. This results in lower maintenance costs.
Enhanced oil recovery steam generators are built for clients in the oil fields. EORs designed by Nooter/Eriksen are licensed, manufactured and distributed by TIW Western direct to the Canadian Oil Sands Market.
