PROPEL Energy Tech Forum 2021

Join us in fueling the energy technology ecosystem as the PROPEL Energy Tech Forum returns with a virtual online forum on June 16 & 17, 2021.  PROPEL is the annual Energy Technology Venture Forum that brings together the best, boldest, most innovative emerging and established energy technology companies. Technology adoption is critical to the long-term viability and stewardship of global energy resources – now more than ever.

The driving sources of energy are changing as we move from a hydrocarbon fuel focus toward renewables. PROPEL is at the forefront of this revolution, standing as a key setting for fostering, commercializing, and integrating new energy technologies. PROPEL Energy Tech and its global industry partners are seizing this leadership opportunity, and have created the platform for building the energy industry of the future – and you won’t want to miss it.

Presentation - Resource Recovery & Management

RF XL consists of a complete RF heating system - a containerized RF generator situated on the surface which can be relocated to different well pads, coupled to proprietary downhole tubing sections forming transmission lines and radiating elements. The RF XL platform is expected to allow operators to mobilize heavy oil and oil sands assets with significantly lower cost, lower emissions, and without the use of fresh water or solvents. 

RF XL Heating

Acceleware’s RF XL is a transformative innovation that uses radio frequency (RF) energy to heat and mobilize heavy oil and bitumen, resulting in dramatically cleaner and lower-cost production relative to traditional steam-based processes such as steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD).   

Two RF XL Heating lines are deployed in the pay zone from a single well, delivering RF energy which turns the water in the formation into steam. The steam heats the oil, allowing it to flow to a producer well below.  

Since presenting at PROPEL in 2017, Acceleware has had seven patents granted, has filed sixteen more, and will continue to file additional patents in 2021.

Acceleware is building a comprehensive base of IP to protect all elements of its technology platforms and will continue to invest in expanding the capabilities of the technology as well as the strength of the IP portfolio protecting that investment.
