Steam-foam has been used extensively in field trials to improve steam conformance, both for cyclic steam injection and steam flood. It is a proven process and very useful lessons can be drawn from these field trials to plan new projects. However, foam has not yet been used to improve SAGD (Steam-Assisted Gravity Drainage) performances.
The presentation provides useful physical considerations on the steam-foam process along with detailed guidelines for the implementation of the Foam-Assisted SAGD process in the field. It will be useful for engineers that are considering foam to improve the performances of SAGD by targeting a reduction of the steam consumption or the Steam Oil Ratio.
In this webinar you will learn:
• Steam foam basics
• What is foam-assisted SAGD and how does it work
• Differences between the foams for Cyclic stem injection and steam flow and their implications for the design and implementation of FA-SAGD
• Key practical aspects and challenges for foam-assisted sagd
• How FA-SAGD can improve the process by reducing steam consumption or the Steam Oil Ratio
