The optimum exploitation of heavy and extra heavy oils resources  requires specific technologies developed from field trials and research extensively done in North America in Canada, in South America, in the heavy oil fields in the Orinoco Oil Belt in Venezuela, where the cyclic steam injection, steam flood drive, horizontal and multilateral wells have been intensively tested and applied.

The experiences acquired in three decades of investigation and research in field tests, laboratory studies, experimental and commercial projects implemented in the  years 1975 to 2003 for the development of the heavy and  extra heavy oil resources in the Orinoco Bitumen Belt Eastern Venezuela comprises drilling, coring, fluid sampling, testing, geologic stochastic modelling, reservoir and reserves evaluations, pilot tests design, field developments, transport, upgrading and economics, are available to support heavy oil projects worldwide.

In the decade of 1990-2000, the strategic association composed by international players and PDVSA affiliates working together invested thousand of million US dollars  to develop the heavy and extra heavy oil resources in the Venezuelan Orinoco Oil Belt, the experiences acquired in those developments for over 15 years are available with our consultants.

Using our consultants in your heavy oil resources at a fraction of cost can result in important savings and generate important revenues to your companies.

We will be pleased to work with your teams to transfer our experiences, to contribute with your heavy oil projects in whichever stage either a new or mature development. We also have ready to lecture specific trainings for heavy oil production methods, please contact us for a discussion, personal or on line meeting.
