2017 President’s Message
Dr. Yanguang Yuan, “YY”, P.Eng., P.Geol., Principal of BitCan. Shares his Vision
BitCan advocates proactive use of geomechanics to improve reservoir production and safeguard reservoir containment integrity. Nowadays, oil/gas production requires attention to not only fluid phase, but also deformation and fracturing behaviour of the rock matrix. BitCan has innovative technologies to create maximum reservoir stimulation volume and also to create it at target time, space and/or orientation. This creates the pathway for the reservoir fluid to be produced and/or for the stimulating materials to be placed inside the reservoir, contacting the hydrocarbon.In promoting the reservoir deformation and fracturing to our benefits, BitCan also provides a total solution system for designing the maximum injection pressure so that the caprock/casing/fault integrity is not compromised.
We appreciate our client for trusting us to FUSE all their SAGD wells all of which have implemented our C-FUSE technology. For more details on C-FUSE, please refer to the “Case History” section.
BitCan taught a short course to PetroChina’s affiliated companies and institutes: “Workshop on Application of Geomechanics in Improving Reservoir Production and Protecting Reservoir Containment Integrity.”
BitCan gave several lunch-n-learn talks on openhole mini-frac tests, FUSETM technology and joint inversion of comprehensive observation data for subsurface processes. We welcome similar and other forums to promote geomechanics for being used to improve reservoir production and safeguard reservoir containment integrity.
This SAGD well achieved excellent thermal conformance result after a short period of steam circulation. For details, please refer to “Case History” section.
