GERI’s portable DCSG co-injector injects steam (or produced hot water) and combustion exhaust gases (mainly N2 & CO2) into a well, simultaneously meeting the two fundamental needs of depleted heavy oil reservoirs: heat and pressure.

Heavy oil production in Alberta and Saskatchewan has notoriously poor recovery rates, often leaving as much as 90 per cent of the resource behind. It also tends to be emissions and capital intensive, meaning smaller deposits are not economically feasible to develop. A Calgary-based start-up has developed a technology that could entirely change that equation.
