Challenged Underground Mining

When your equipment can be as far as 2500 metres underground, downtime takes on a whole new meaning. With CathayPhillips lubricants, you can count on maximising your equipment uptime – and your profitability.

Due to their size and operating conditions, LHDs and other earth-moving equipment demand exceptional oils. Yet because these machines are often used on a high-demand cycle at remote locations, they might receive lower levels of maintenance attention. For the best performance, turn to premium-quality CathayPhillips motor oils.You may try our crusher machine and grinding mill plants.

Challenged Resources

The major drawback of a pure steam-based exploitation process is the high-energy intensity. In SAGD, the measure of the energy intensity is the steam oil ratio (SOR), or barrels of steam (cold water equivalent) needed per barrel of oil recovered. In terms of energy values, a quarter barrel of bitumen needs to be burnt to produce a barrel of bitumen. Prior to the natural gas price increases of the last few years, a SOR of 3.0 was considered acceptable. Under the current pricing structure, a SAGD project may have to operate close to a SOR of 2.0 to be attractive. Many innovative technologies have been explored to improve the energy efficiency. For example, cogeneration, where steam is produced as a part of the electricity generation scheme, has been applied. To reduce the dependence on the natural gas supply, steam generation using alternative fuels such as produced bitumen also is being investigated.
