Thermal Heavy Oil
Variperm is positioned as a sand control leader in Thermal Heavy Oil, being a major provider to Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) and Cyclic Steam Stimulation (CSS) projects in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin.
Most thermal projects require some form of sand control. At Variperm, we are committed to partnering with our clients to provide the most effective solution to their SAGD & CSS sand control requirements. We are leading the Canadian market in the design, engineering and manufacturing of highly effective technological solutions for SAGD & CSS applications, starting with the first horizontal thermal well ever drilled in Alberta. As well, we provide a variety of sand control solutions for high rate water source wells required for SAGD operations.
Variperm presently has over 800,000m+ of horizontal thermal SAGD well screen installed in multiple SAGD projects throughout Alberta. Our current business projections predict an upsurge of both SAGD pilot projects and full development/production operations. And we have the equipment, the qualified staff and the manufacturing plant capability necessary to accommodate these volumes.
From our 65,000 sqft facility in Calgary, AB, our SAGD products and services are custom engineered, manufactured and regulated. As a result, we are able to control and produce substantial volumes on an immense scale for thermal heavy oil operations. Our close proximity to many of the largest Canadian oil & gas operations provides flexibility and convenience – which lead to decreased operation downtimes and overall lower project costs.
