Field Heaters—Thermal Enhanced Oil Recovery Steam Generators

Clayton Industries has more than 50 years experience in Thermal Enhanced Oil Recovery. Clayton Steam Generators were used in the early days of oil recovery in the Central Valley of California and are currently being used around the world.

Thermal Enhanced Oil Recovery (TEOR) technology is one of the most widely employed Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) methods. Cyclic and steam-flood thermal EOR are the two most common methods of TEOR and have the greatest certainty of success and potential application in about 70% of heavy oil fields worldwide. Thermal methods also give the best recoveries at the lowest costs.

The Clayton TEOR Steam Generator is a complete, self-contained, automatic generating unit and is ready for operation upon its Installation. This includes connection to the feedwater system, fuel supply and power source. The basic design is a once-through, forced-circulation, spiral-wound smooth tube heat exchanger. Clayton’s design offers significant fuel savings with size and weight advantages. It is inherently safe and has no possibility of a hazardous steam explosion.

Designed with oil field thermal recovery specifications in mind, the Clayton TEOR Industrial Steam Generator is a truly portable water heater. Its compact design allows the unit to be skid mounted, trailer mounted or containerized. This portability makes it versatile and adaptable to a variety of field conditions and applications. The Clayton Thermal Enhanced Oil Recovery Steam Generator delivers more usable BTUs to the formation at a considerably lower cost than any other combination of components currently available. Units are available from 25 to 1,000 BHP and pressures up to 3,000 psig.

Clayton Industrial Boilers are known for their compact size, light weight and low emissions over conventional steam generators. They are highly regarded for their reliability, fuel economy, fully automatic PLC controls and ability to quickly start up and follow load cycles.
