Heavy Oil

We can lift heavy oil and your revenue

Heavy oil is a vast U.S. oil resource that is underexploited because
its highly viscous nature renders it difficult to produce and to refine.

- US Department of Energy

Heavy oil generally is defined as having a high specific gravity (API gravity of 4-17 degrees) and a high viscosity (typically above 10 cP). As lighter oil becomes increasingly scarce in the U.S., operators are looking to heavy oil to help boost the nation’s declining oil output.

The economical production of heavy oil is a major challenge. Many technologies and services used for conventional oil face tough limitations with these highly viscous oils.

In particular, downhole damage mechanisms such as asphaltene, paraffin, scale, emulsion block and changes in wettability occur more commonly than with conventional oil.

To meet these challenges, Enova offers customized, proprietary, technical solutions to address the unique needs of your field. These high effectively solutions are based upon over 100 years of experience in heavy oil production.

Enova offers a comprehensive set of solutions for Heavy Oil Production and Recovery.
