RF XL – Accelerating the transition to a clean and prosperous energy future.
Technological advancements are making possible the electrification of production methods for Canada’s petroleum resources, especially heavy oil and oil sands. This means that we can stop burning fossil fuels to produce fossil fuels, essentially enabling the use of green electricity to produce them – a critical step toward a clean energy transition.
But RF XL can do much more than produce clean oil.
As the world moves towards a clean energy future, we believe that RF XL could play a key role in reducing or eliminating GHG emissions, as well as making big reductions in fresh water and land use. RF XL does all of this without the use of injected solvents.
RF XL – Radio Frequency Heating That Works
For years, companies have seen great value potential in harnessing radio frequency (RF) heating to produce oil sands and heavy oil. Past technological limitations, however, prevented RF heating from being successfully developed and commercialized.
Things have certainly changed.
RF XL is a transformative RF heating technology that uses Silicon Carbide (SiC) generators, requires no dipole antennae, and has been proven in our 1/20 scale field test. In fact, Acceleware believes that we can now produce heavy oil and oil sands much more effectively and at much lower cost than SAGD.
