EN-FAB, Inc. is the exclusive worldwide licensee to market, manufacture and
service an innovative Two-Phase Steam Distribution System, developed by Shell Oil Company.
In Thermal Enhanced Oil Recovery (TEOR) projects, high quality two-phase steam is
injected into hydrocarbon bearing formations to increase production. If it is necessary
to distribute this steam to individual injection wells, the problem arises in dividing
the main flow into the individual flows while maintaining the same ratio between vapor
and water in the individual flows. The above problem will be more significant when
large co-generation plants are installed. The co-generation plants will produce both
electricity and the steam required for the TEOR projects. These plants will be centralized
and the initial steam flow will be large and must be divided into the individual flows
for various injection wells.
The DAN-SQUID system, has been extensively used at Shellâ€™s steamflood operation at the
Kern River fields in Bakersfield, California.
