General Energy Recovery Inc.

Portable direct contact steam generation
Steam + Nitrogen + Carbon Dioxide


Our Vision

General Energy Recovery Inc (GERI) is a service company focused on providing our clients with steam and flue gases for enhanced heavy oil production. GERI has researched and developed a high pressure direct contact steam generator technology in the Lloydminster area of Alberta. Our commercial process produces less emissions and uses less water than traditional steam injection facilities used in CSS or SAGD operations.

We are a privately funded technology company with operations based out of Lloydminster and with head office located in downtown Calgary.

Our Services

Our direct contact steam generator is capable of injecting 80% steam quality with combustion flue gases at pressures up to 7 MPa, with rates between 5-10 MJ/hr (5-10 MMBTU/hr).  We can inject into Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) wells for pre-heating during facility construction, late stage SAGD repressurization, and also into older Cold Heavy Oil Produced with Sand (CHOPS) wells.  We can also steam non-thermally cased and cemented wells with our patent pending annular cooling loop technology.  Our system is highly portable and requires only a supply of natural gas, and boiler grade water – we produce the steam, nitrogen and carbon dioxide to heat and provide reservoir pressure to maximize your oil production and recovery.  Our generator is nearly 100% efficient, with all exhaust products from the production of steam being injected into the reservoir.  In addition our process uses 13% less water than traditional steaming methods.
