Water reuse using GE evaporators in Canadian oil sands application

Sponsored by

Canadian oil sands company MEG Energy Corp has selected GE evaporation technology for Phases 2B and 3A of the Christina Lake Project, located in Northern Alberta, Canada.

GE’s evaporators will be used to recycle a significant portion of the steam generator blowdown for reuse as boiler feedwater.

The Christina Lake project uses both cogeneration and once-through steam generators (OTSGs) to drive the steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) process for the production of bitumen, a heavy crude oil produced from oil sands.

MEG Energy will use GE evaporators to treat its OTSG blowdown and recycle it as boiler feedwater as opposed to disposing of it by deep well injection.

GE will supply fifth generation, fully modularized evaporator systems, which the company said are “designed to achieve the lowest possible project costs”.
