8. Heat Exchange Area

Our Heat Exchange system is flexible enough to provide effective heat exchange under C-SAGD, SAGD and SC-SAGD, which we anticipate will run at cooler temperatures.

The heat exchange area contains three coolers – produced water cooler, produced water trim cooler and dilbit cooler – which provide pre-heat for boiler feed water and injected solvents. It is the heaviest module on the plant due to the spiral exchangers used. These spiral heat exchangers were chosen as they do not foul as easily as other exchangers and are easier to clean if solids are produced back.
