FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can more than one Enercat Tool be installed in a well?

Yes. The number of tools required for a particular well is determined by the number of barrels of oil produced per day for that well.

Where does the Enercat Tool's energy come from?

Enercat’s energy source is the ambient energy surrounding it.

How long will an Enercat tool last?

Tools have continued to perform in oil wells for more than ten years.

Can they be moved from well to well?

Yes.

Is there a patent?

Revelant has a number of pending patents.

How long does the oil remain treated?

This will vary depending on the oil, type of installation and well configuration, but normally the Enercat Tool will stabilize crude oil and produced water downhole, minimizing and usually preventing asphaltene, paraffin and scale deposition and increased viscosity as the oil rises up the well. The crude oil and produced water usually remains in this state in surface tanks and through flow lines. In surface tanks with an Enercat Tool installed, emulsion typically breaks and bacterial problems are prevented. Scale often is released from metal surfaces such as in pipelines.

How does the Enercat tool work?

To see how the Enercat Tool works go to the SOLUTIONS TO PROBLEMS pages.

Where is it Enercat tool installed?

To see where Enercat Tools have been installed go to INSTALLATION page.

What are the economic benefits of the Enercat Tool?

To see the economic benefits of the Enercat Tool go to the ECONOMIC BENEFITS page.

Does the Enercat change the value of the oil?

Instead of the paraffin, asphaltene or scale depositing in the well and in surface facilities they typically remain in the oil until they reach the refinery. Emulsion breaking in surface tanks has resulted in clean oil, and water without oil. Prevention of bacteria in surface tanks has also prevented the degrading of oil.

Does it work in all wells?

There is an Enercat Tool designed for most types of wells. Go to the PRODUCTS pages to see the types of tools and their application to various well configurations. The tools work in virtually any well that experiences deposition and/or heavy oil viscosity, although high fluid speeds, high GOR, extremely high salinity, and ESP electrical cables adjacent to the tool compromise the Enercat Tool’s effectiveness. Each well must be evaluated on an individual basis.
