Thermal Conductivity Analysis for the Oil & Gas, Geological and Electrical Utilities Industries

Whether for petroleum engineering, geo-thermal application or the electrical utility industry - the thermal conductivity of rock and soil sediment is of critical consideration.  Learn more about application of C-Therm’s Modified Transient Plane Source (MTPS) and Transient Line Source (TLS) sensor technology.  We’ll highlight bituminous sample testing for core labs in the O&G sector. 

Thermal Recovery Methods are used in the O&G industry for Heavy Oil recovery. For many oil fields, particularly where low-to-medium gravity oils are found or where the oil viscosity is unfavourable for conventional extraction methods, Thermal Recovery Methods are the best techniques for ultimate recovery. Vast deposits of heavy oil exist in Canada, Venezuela and USA that are amenable to recovery by Thermal Recovery. Thermal Recovery is usually applied to heavy to medium oils, however these methods can be applied to any field being considered and be competitive with alternative methods. The thermal conductivity of the geological rock composition, as well as drilling fluids are very important.  Learn how to test them accurately. 

We’ll also review recent published work from Italy in mapping optimal placement for geo-thermal heat exchangers. We’ll conclude with detailed discussion of ASTM D5334, Standard Test Method for Determination of Thermal Conductivity of Soil and Soft Rock by Thermal Needle Probe Procedure used primarily in the electrical utility industry. 

The webinar will be of particular interest to any researchers in the Oil & Gas industry, and Geology.
