Radio Frequency Heating
Similar to the way microwaves heat food, the Enhanced Solvent Extraction Incorporating Electromagnetic Heating (ESEIEH®) process utilizes HeatWave® to heat a reservoir in situ by transmitting radio waves. This eliminates the need for steam, associated water, and related capital expenses. L3Harris’ HeatWave® RF heating systems are based on decades of industry-leading RF development experience. The technology is designed to economically recover hydrocarbon resources while reducing the environmental impact when implemented as a part of the ESEIEH® process.
