Acceleware Ltd (“Acceleware” or the “Company”), a Canadian clean-tech innovator of radio frequency (RF) heating technologies that enable the electrification of industrial heat and promise a dramatic reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, today announced that the Company has finished its drilling and completions program for the commercial-scale RF XL pilot project at Marwayne, Alberta (the “Pilot”), and has initiated facilities installation, representing a major milestone in the execution of the Pilot. RF XL is a next generation, patented, low-cost, non-aqueous recovery solution which could yield low-to-zero scope 1 and scope 2 GHGs to produce heavy oil and oil sands.

The drilling and completions program of the Pilot involved the successful completion of the producer well and the deployment of two RF XL transmission lines into the heating well horizontals. The Pilot producer well was spudded on August 12, 2021 using Akita Drilling Ltd.’s (“Akita”) Rig 29. The majority of the drilling program, including the 800m producer lateral, was successfully wrapped up on Sept 2, 2021. The subsurface execution resumed on Nov 6, 2021, using Akita’s Rig 34, to drill the remaining two heating lateral sections and install the proprietary RF XL transmission lines. Halliburton provided directional services throughout the drilling program. Completion of the producer well was accomplished with Precision Drilling Rig 596, and included installation of a progressive cavity pump and temperature and pressure monitoring equipment.

“With Acceleware’s RF XL pilot being the first of its kind, drilling both wells, completing the producer well, and most importantly successful deployment of the RF XL radiating structures in the horizontal laterals marks a major milestone for this project. This work involved an amazing collaborative effort from over a dozen companies most of which, we are proud to say, are Alberta based,” said Laura McIntyre, project lead and CTO of Acceleware. “I’d like to extend our sincere thanks and congratulations to everyone who took part.”

Service partners involved in the drilling and completions program of the Pilot included Halliburton, Akita Drilling Ltd., Precision Drilling, Tristar Resource Management Ltd., Weatherford Canada Ltd., CES Energy Solutions, Precise Downhole Solutions, Tenaris, Stream-Flo Industries Ltd., Pro Pipe Service and Variperm Energy Services Inc., among others.

Said Doug Schweitzer, Alberta’s Minister of Jobs, Economy and Innovation,“Acceleware’s pilot project is a prime example of the homegrown technology and innovation that is pushing our province forward. Our innovators are working together to make ground-breaking discoveries and commercialize the solutions our energy industry, and the world needs and in turn is helping Alberta lead the way to a sustainable, diversified energy future.”

“Halliburton was honoured to collaborate on the drilling of this innovative well pair,” said John Gorman, Halliburton VP Canada, West Coast USA. “As society works towards a low carbon future, we look forward to developing innovative technology solutions with our customers that could help to reduce each companies’ emissions.”

Facilities installation has commenced, and will involve installation of power lines, move in of the electrical house, and production piping. RF XL heating will start shortly after installation of the remaining electrical and monitoring equipment in the heating well, and final commissioning. While the initial heating phase is planned for approximately six months, this period may be extended to allow Acceleware to capture additional information on the efficiency and operation of the technology.

If proven successful, the Pilot will mark a world first for electrification of low-to-zero GHG heavy oil and oil sands production. RF XL is designed to generate zero scope 1 and scope 2 GHG emissions when it is powered entirely by renewable electricity, nuclear, or other clean power sources. In addition, RF XL eliminates the need for fresh water, which in turn means fewer surface facilities and less land disturbance, offering a cleaner and more sustainable solution to meet the world’s growing demand for energy. With a successful Pilot and subsequent commercialization, numerous potential environmental benefits could be realized by oil sands and heavy oil producers deploying RF XL, and the Company anticipates highly skilled job creation as well as skilled jobs transition opportunities, including jobs for Indigenous peoples.

Acceleware’s Marwayne Pilot is supported by Sustainable Development Technology Canada, Emissions Reduction Alberta, Alberta Innovates, Broadview Energy, and three major oil sands partners, including Cenovus and Suncor.

About Acceleware

Acceleware (acceleware.com) is an innovator of clean-tech oil and gas technologies comprised of two business units: Radio Frequency (RF) Enhanced Oil Recovery and Seismic Imaging Software.

Acceleware is developing RF XL, its patented low-cost, low-carbon production technology for heavy oil and oil sands that is materially different from any heavy oil recovery technique used today. Acceleware's vision is that electrification of heavy oil and oil sands production can be made possible through RF XL, supporting a transition to much cleaner energy production that can quickly bend the emissions curve downward. Further, Acceleware’s RF XL technology could be a key component of an end-to-end integrated carbon management system that can eliminate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with heavy oil and oil sands production, whether for fossil fuels, or for future clean bitumen by-products such as petrochemicals, carbon fibre, and blue or green hydrogen production. RF XL uses no water, requires no solvent, has a small physical footprint, can be redeployed from site to site, and can be applied to a multitude of reservoir types. In shallow oil sands implementations, no tailings ponds will be required.

Acceleware has partnered with Saa Dene Group (co-founded by Jim Boucher) (saadene.com) to create Acceleware | Kisâstwêw to raise the profile, adoption, and value of Acceleware technologies. The shared vision of the partnership is to improve the environmental and economic performance of the energy sector by supporting ideals that are important to Indigenous peoples, including respect for land, water, and clean air.

The Company’s seismic imaging software solutions are state-of-the-art for high fidelity imaging, providing the most accurate and advanced imaging available for oil exploration in complex geologies. Acceleware is a public company listed on Canada’s TSX Venture Exchange under the trading symbol “AXE”.
