Vacuum Insulated Tubing

Pre-stressed Vacuum Insulated Tubing (VIT) replaces oil tubing for heavy oil recovery by steam injection improves project economics. With the following advantages: 

  • Reduces heat loss ensuring optimal steam quality being injected into the oil formation.
  • Minimizes heat stress on well casing and cement mantle, decreases unwanted annulus pressure.
  • Improves well life cycle cost and avoids failure due to well integrity issues.
  • Optimized cyclic steam stimulation cycles for better overall project economics.
  • Important technology for the economic production of deeper heavy oil formations.
