Vista’s client constructed a Cyclic Steam Stimulation pilot project at an existing licensed cold production heavy oil field in northwest Alberta. The pilot facility is designed to produce a maximum 207 m3/day (1,300 barrels per day) of emulsion. The pilot facility will allow for temporary steam injection that will help evaluate the future enhanced oil recovery (EOR) potential in the client’s leases in the area.
Vista provided the Pre-FEED, FEED, detailed engineering and procurement services for the project, which included a 25 million btu/hour Once-Through Steam Generator, water treatment, storage tanks and tank treatment facilities. Vista’s previous experience and proven designs were used as templates to expedite the engineering for this client’s first heavy oil facility design.
